    We have joined this site but have had our van for about four years, although it did not come out much last year as we had just moved.

    I was hoping that some one may be able to assist. We have a Foster and Day conversion so the body is similar to that of a caravan. We have a slight leak in the side (it had been previously repaired prior to our ownership) and it needs repairing. Does anyone know where we can get a repair kit or if they exist? We begrudge putting it into the garage for such a minor leak.

    Thanks

    Tracey and Chris :Laughing:

    Hi Tracy,

    Depends on where and how the leak is, there is a product called Water Leak Seal, not expensive £5.98

    In vehicles, old and new
    Capt. Tolley is especially handy for owners of cars and recreational vehicles, such as campervans and caravans.

    It’s great at sealing window and windscreens surrounds, rivet holes, aluminium trim, gullies and skylights.
    Vintage and veteran car enthusiasts have welcomed the product with enthusiasm.

    On boats
    Capt. Tolley was originally invented for boats so it’s no surprise that it excels in this area.

    It’s very effective for fixing leaking windows, porthole surrounds, portlights, decks, coach roofs and centreboard casings.
    And it’s ideal for sealing around stressed items such as deck fittings.
    It's quick and easy to apply
    There's no need to remove old sealants.
    You just apply the sealant along the line of a crack or joint until no more is absorbed.
    It saves time and effort
    As the sealant can penetrate deep into structures, there is no need to take items apart or put them back together again.

    It’s waterbased and non-toxic
    The sealant is safe to use and, unlike other products, it can be applied to cracks even when they are slightly damp.
    Capt. Tolley’s Creeping Crack Cure is a one-part water-based acrylic co-polymer penetrating sealant
    It works with most materials
    The sealant can be applied safely to most materials, including polystyrene.

    It cures within 24 hours
    The exposed edges of the sealant dry first; the sealant in the interior takes longer. Normally a seal is made within 24 hours.

    It accomodates movement when dry
    The sealant forms a strong flexible bond that can accommodate a small degree of structural movement.

    It can be painted over
    When dry the sealant is transparent but it can be painted over succesfully as so little of the sealant is exposed to the surface.

    Hi and welcome to the forum. Hopefully you have received sufficient advice by now to prevent your problem from getting worse. However I must correct you on one point. There is no such thing as a minor leak. A leak is a leak and over the time it takes you to spot there is one, it has already caused damage to your framework which has been steadily rotting away. Sorry about that but I speak from experience of replacing framework in most of the vans I have ever owned. Why oh why don't manufacturers use treated timber.
    Ignorance is bliss I suppose.
