I replaced the seal with some kind of butyl tape. Bad idea. It's now on there like concrete.


Once it dried it started leaking again. I ended up taping off the fan and spraying the base with flex seal in a can, the one from Walmart. Worked great at stopping annoying drip. I then installed one of those vent covers.




Luckily no more leaks, I'll leave that butyl tape for the next guy.

I love Butyl tape! BT-1834-1 is what I used under the flange. A dab of Sika 221 over the screws and around the perimeter of the flange finished it off.

I hope you didn't use silly-cone up there or you'll be redoing this next year with a lot more swearing. Why wouldn't someone seal it? That is a huuuuuuge leak?!?!?

Just wondering...


We used this putty-type sealant on the underside of the new flange to seal it to the body of the bus.



And this self-leveling type everywhere else.

Makes me want to take a closer look at my other vent now and see if it was installed without sealant too. But that will have to wait for another dry morning...getting ready for our afternoon downpour.

Hope you didn’t use silicone! I have that diploma from the past.

No silicone...but the bus is covered with it unfortunately.

Also happy to report the leak is FIXED! It rained a ton last night and it was dry as a bone this morning.

Now if only the fuel tank leak was this easy to fix......

Bathroom is now re-assembled and dry as a bone. We also checked the front vent to see if it was erroneously installed the same way. Much to our relief, it was installed with some sealant UNDER the top flange. The wood around it looked as if it had leaked at some point so we will be covering the top flange with some roofing tape. Just to be safe. Piece by piece, she is coming back together.
