Default 2008 FunFinder X250

We recently bought a used funfinder from a friend and now have experienced some leaking inside that is causing the front to bubble and the wood of the slide out to peel away. Has anyone remodeled their funfinder and have any tips/tricks. I believe from what we can see the slide out has metal bars and then foam in bewteen. We have never remodeled an rv before and not really sure where to start. Thank you in advance

I wish I had better news for you -- but fixing a front cap leak, on any trailer, is a big job. You'll have to peel back the front and the roof till you see undamaged studs. And it sounds like the leak went pretty far back -- all the way to the slide? Or maybe that is a separate leak.

In any event, this is not a great job for newbies, unless you are an experienced woodworker or metalworker. You will have to replace the damaged studs and then will have to patch the roof and re-fiberglass the front cap.

The good news is that there are plenty of DIY how-to videos on youtube, so you can teach yourself how to do the job right. Do you have a covered place where you can work on the trailer during the winter?

Good luck. I sure hope I am wrong about the magnitude of the tasks ahead of you.
