Jayco Delamination


SuiteSuccess

Recommended Posts

Kids Jayco travel trailer has small area of delamination on back. I know I can repair using epoxy resin, syringe, and tubing to inject into void and clamp using straps after drying area before resin application. My question can I purchase the epoxy locally or am I going to have to order a kit? Question two, could I just order a 4x8 foot section of new board (and where to order) and just replace the whole section? Question three, considered just cutting out that section putting in new marine ply and covering with aluminum tread plate. Is this bad idea?

You can order from West Marine or other warehouse and do the injection like you stated. Or Idea #3 doesn't sound bad either.

To me, it would be based on hold old is the Jayco? Dollar value of it? I f you purchase the epoxy locally, make sure they understand your working time. When we had the business, we had stuff that was 5-minute working time to 5 hours or longer.

Jim,

 

The Jayco is 2002 so not worth that much but in good shape otherwise. Was hoping you would chime in because with your boating experience thought you would have a suggestion. Also heard that polyester epoxy resin not good. Suggestions as to what to use? BTW would need at least 30 min working time.
