RV Interior Paneling Repair Tips


Nothing will upset the look and comfort of your RV interior more than damage to your RV’s paneling. This kind of damage can lead to challenges like mold and rotting, and it can look unsightly, rendering the entire RV unusable for camping, traveling, and hosting. Want to know how to get your paneling back into shape in a hurry? Then follow our RV interior paneling repair tips below!

Start By Inspecting For Water Damage

If you have water damage in your interior paneling, there’s a good chance that simply repairing your panels will not do the trick. A leak will ensure that your paneling will continue to suffer damage every time there’s precipitation.

That’s why it’s so vital to start with an inspection to check for leaks. Look at both the inside and outside of your RV. When it rains, make sure that you’re especially sensitive to any moisture making its way in. We offer plenty of RV sealants to deal with exterior leaks at the source—but it won’t do any good until you’ve identified the problem.

Use The Right Materials

Albert Einstein once said that if he had an hour to fix a problem, he would use the first 59 minutes to diagnose the problem. Finding the right materials for this repair job is similar: when you do a proper diagnosis of your RV interior paneling repair issues, you can easily match the materials you’ll need.

So what materials will you need? That depends on the diagnosis. But we do have some suggestions to help you, including:

  • Git Rot® Kit. If the paneling suffers from dry rot, make sure that you seal off any potential leaks and then repair the affected area with this two-part liquid epoxy formula. Using capillary action to penetrate and restore wood, this can bring new life to paneling that’s starting to weaken.
  • Silicone Rubber Sealant. By adhering safely to wood, a silicone rubber sealant can help repair any leaks in the paneling itself. And with a full cure within 24 hours, this sealant will dry out quickly enough to get your RV back to working condition.

Consider Replacing If Damage Is Too Extensive

All that talk about diagnosis is vital, because it could save you both headaches and money. How? If your damage is too extensive, you might need to opt for a professional repair right off the bat. That will save you a few trips to the hardware store as well as some headaches down the line. But that doesn’t mean you should throw your hands up and declare a repair impossible without taking the time to understand it!

If you do your research and take the time to understand the damage in your RV interior paneling, you may be able to handle the job with ease on your own. And with the right RV products in your corner, you can safely address the problem and get your RV back on the road in no time.
