Building the Essential RV Sealing Kit

So you’ve taken our advice and built an Essential RV Cleaning Kit. Great! You’ve put together the pieces you need to address
most of the messy problems you’ll encounter over the life of your RV so that
when disaster strikes, you’ll be prepared.

But as any RV owner knows, your work is far from over.

Now it’s time to build an essential RV sealing kit. With this kit in hand, you won’t find yourself
frustrated when it comes time to repair leaks. In fact, you’ll feel empowered
to tackle these problems head-on and ensure that they don’t get worse over the
life of your RV.

First Things First:
One Size Does Not Fit All

When recommending items for an RV sealing kit, it can be
handy to offer tips that seem “one-size-fits all.” It’s important to realize
that different RVs are constructed differently, and that different leaks occur
in different materials. Make sure that you study up on your RV’s individual materials to know which sealant might work
best for you.

That said, putting together this kit should help you tackle
leaks in very common RV materials, so you’ll likely be better off with it in hand than without it. Even
so, you’ll want to use your own common sense when putting together a kit and
spending your hard-earned money.

The Kit: Matching
Sealants to Materials

Now that we’ve got that word of warning out of the way, it’s
time to look at some products that do a great job of sealing off some of the
most common RV materials you’ll encounter:

  • End Grain Sealer for Wood. Anyone who’s had to maintain wood over the years knows
    that it’s a very dynamic material. It comes from trees, after all—and as we all
    know, trees grow and rot and bloom and live very dynamic lives. You’ll need an
    effective sealer to ensure that your wood’s end grain is well protected, cured,
    and sealed off from the environment to maximize its usable lifespan.
  • Silicone Rubber Sealant. You’ll find plenty of silicone and rubber when it comes to
    your RV, which means you’ll have to be prepared. It’s important when you’re working
    with these kinds of materials that you have a sealant that is neutral in
    nature, including a very low odor so that there’s no industrial “after smell”
    that occurs.
  • The Stick. Ensuring that you’re applying a level and uniform amount of sealant
    is essential to performing a professional-quality job. A tiny investment in
    “The Stick” is a great way to ensure that’s the case, giving you the ability to
    apply and level off sealant with an even-ness that will have people wondering
    where you have your sealing done.

As stated, each RV’s sealant kit should be unique to your
RV—and your materials. But take a look at the recommended products to see if
they might fit what you need, including the accessories that help ensure that
no matter what you’re sealing, you’re doing a professional-quality job.
