Camper water leak

2 posts in this topic

Help,

I have a slow water leak in my camper that I believe is in my pressure tank. It's the tank where the water first fills up and it seems to be aluminum. Anyways, it looks to me like the water slowly comes out from underneath the tank area. My question is has anyone taken one of these tanks out and had it fixed or replaced? If so, how much did that run? Thanks-Barrett

My guess is that it would be similar to a leaking pontoon tube in which case it's pretty tough. If you can find the leak and it's very small, try some JB Aluminum weld. It's basically an epoxy that bonds to aluminum. Apply a few coats letting it harden between each coat. Hopefully it will hold under pressure.

If you can't find the leak, try rubbing soapy water over the empty tank while under pressure and look for the air bubbles.

Welding aluminum can be very spendy, and sometimes not possible. No idea on a replacement cost. Try the easy fix first.

      Nice thats what I like to hear, was doing an annual trip to LOW with my buddies, but to be quite honest biggest fish I ever saw in 10 plus trips was 27 inches, I caught 3 bigger than that on the pond last year, and hey I can stay in Wright county where I live and catch 10 inch walleyes.. I don't make it up to that end of the lake ever, usually fish the south end..Bought a wheel house this year, would loke to set it up as base camp and hopefully be able to head up toward that end and do some exploring..And thanks for the input, thinking there is a lot of readers and not many writers on this site nowadays...

      Lake Marion is completely iced over. Hopefully we won't get much snow and be fishing soon.

      Silver lake in New Brighton is iced over. I'm going to count one week before checking thickness on my early ice spots. Could be fishing next Friday if all goes well.
