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.

      Buddy and I went out yesterday around noon. Fished for a few hours was a little windy but not to bad. Only got a small largemouth and one decent gill. Only fished for 2-3 hours tried all over the small lake we were on. Ooh well still nice to finnaly get out. Planning on taking the yak out on opener do a bass/pike/ walleye trip so exited for that. Few nice gills you got there rick!

      Any reports? I know there was a lot of people out there. The boomsite access was already 3/4 full when I drove by at 5 AM. I'm thinking about going out of blufflands park on Friday.

      Kinda cold and windy yesterday. Fish really didn't seem to mind though. Finding ggod sized fish was the goal for the afternoon. Started off in a feeding bay that has a section of deeper water in it. This deeper water is where I found all my fish. Crappies were holding tight to the weed cover around the hole, while gills were closer to the surface. It wasn't fast fishing by any means, still I managed to find some real quality pannies

      I have two Vexilar transducers.    1) Thru hull/trolling motor- used.  From FL8 2) New never used, high speed.       I looked on Vexilar's site, The one's they sell say FL8 or FL18.  Checked FAQ and they look like they are interchangeable with other models???  Can text pictures-what do you have?
