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.

      I have had good luck with a #4 red hook. About 5-6' of 10lb mono and tie the hook directly to the line. Hook the minnow along the back.

      Fished Owasso last summer for the first time since the winter kill, caught one bass in 4 hours. My wife was fishing for pan fish and didn't get a nibble. You might want to look for another lake. CW

      I use about a 6' leader of 10lb flouro tied to my main line with a small barrel swivel. As far as hooks go I don't use just one. I prefer a treble of some sort, usually a small glow spoon. If it's a single hook I lean towards bigger is better, but also in glow. Set it up at your desired depth and don't just forget about it. Check it, move it, check it, move it. You can cover a good amount of water if you aren't lazy about it. Also I use just a simple bobber tie for my depth marker instead of those little bobbers. No real reason why that's just what I'm used to. Good luck, half the fun is learning what works best for you.

      Hey everyone, picked up a frabil insulated tip up last weekend and I want to use it for a set line for walleyes when I want to set up another line in different depths. So I put about 100 years of 20 pound braid tip up line on it. My question is what do I use for my leader? I've herd mono and flouro work good but I don't know which is best? And as far as hooks go what to you guys use? Single red hook? Treble? Sure set? Thanks!
