All wood products will eventually fall apart and in this way we will discuss how a jam and lazy door shapes can be repaired. The first thing you have to do is find the problem. Inspecting your home in the fall is a good time to absorb and repair damage such as this before winter arrives and you cannot solve the problem.
Paint, putty and putty requires a temperature of 70 ° F for drying and curing. The first thing we have to do reduces the damage. Create a horizontal mark on the panel to be removed. Cut, enough to be sure to remove about one centimeter of good material.
The square cuts help you to replace the list, use a speed chart if necessary. You can use a jigsaw or a hand saw to get the job done. Here we have to remove a piece of cornice that forms the seal for our vinyl panels.
When working with vinyl panels, be careful not to bend over the point where a permanent fold forms. If necessary, protect the drill bit against damage by inserting a piece of metal.
Check the molding and make sure that the entire rotten area has been removed. Here you can see that not only the shape but also part of the bottom jam was eaten by water damage. We use a sharp chisel to remove the damaged wood from the jam.
When repairing the damaged part, you must inspect the area and try to determine the cause of the damage. Repeat the cause of the problem if possible. You need a list that matches the original shape of your door.
Take the piece that cuts the door of your local stock center and adjust the piece. Buy enough pieces to make a mistake and do not have to return to the store. With the piece you removed, mark the length of the new frame and dry it in its mouth.
We use a piece of 1x1 / 2 "waste strip to fill the damaged area in the door. Because we know the area is a water problem, it is best to use galvanized nails or coated screws - some of the 3 inch coated cover screws place the molding.
The actual fixing of the form takes place on 2 upper screws, while the lower screws hold the molding easily. The small piece of wood that replaces the damage in the storage room is held with two hot-dip galvanized nails.
It should prevent the sinking of the screw heads and lead the nail heads under the wood surface with a central punch. The parts we use to replace the damaged list do not fit together perfectly, so we have to fill the holes with the stuffing of the body.
You can also use wood filler if it is classified for outdoor use, or simply use putty to fill the holes. Protect the areas around the repair with tape.
The newspaper is also good if you think you need it. Mix the filler and apply it to the surface by pressing it into the cracks as deep as possible. Sand the area with 100 sandpaper to restore the filling. The chisels are also good for removing and shaping the filling in the lists.
The sharper the chisel, the better. You may need a second layer of filler to fix the low parts. If the filling has hardened for at least 4 hours and you are satisfied with your work, you can make the jam if necessary and seal it.
If you want to cure the device overnight, do not forget to place the vinyl strip in its original location. Vinyl that is folded at night or for a long time retains this shape and may not work well against the jam the next day. I strongly recommend to wear a good spare part, along with a key and tire to replace a broken tire.
Double Axle: as soon as a camper is bigger and has some weight, manufacturers usually place two axles under the body. This is the most popular number of axles and in addition to the above tests you must ensure that the brakes work and that the brake pads and brake discs are in good condition.
Triple Axle: When you enter the very large RVs, you will see many of them with triple axes underneath. Again, you have to carry out the above inspections, but you also need to know that the manufacturer has used the brand of axles / bearings / brakes.
With three fixed axles under a camper, every time there is a turn, all the tires try to hit the road at once and one or more of the games will slip away. Together with this extra wear on the tires, the load on the bearings of the three axles is simultaneously increased in this battle for traction.
