Finding Water Leaks in Recreational Vehicles



Water Leaks in an RV is one of the most frustrating maintenance problems in the RV industry. Repeated repair attempts, customer frustration, and incredible structural repair costs have been the norm.

Water leaks left unabated can drastically reduce the trade-in or resale value of any coach, especially if mold develops a foothold. Thank Goodness for Sealtech Manufacturing USA! Sealtech produces what many consider the preeminent apparatus for locating those hard-to-find water entry points on any type of RV.

Now Available at Rick's RV Center in El Cajon, California the SEALTECH 43O-R pinpoints the actual outer surface leak, which is often remote from any visible interior moisture, water damage, or odors.

The SEALTECH 43O-R makes ingenious use of a very simple fact: air flowing through an opening covered with a soapy water ("surfactant") solution produces a bubble precisely at the opening. The system draws outside air into the RV via the roof vent, where it is dispersed, creating a positive interior pressure. This pressure difference causes air to flow outward through any outer skin faults. The application of a soapy water solution to suspicious areas of the outer skin results in a very visible bubble exactly over each fault.

The full service only costs $395.00 and it includes an exterior wash of your RV when the Sealtech process is complete. Call today to schedule an appointment 855-388-8616
