Hi it actually seemed to leak through the seal of the locker door. Were a captured audience in North Wales, not many repairers about.£2000 quote sounds like they didn't want to do it.
Problem is with damp, and I presume that's damp, it may have spread much further than you can see and may not be confined to the floor. If it's got into the walls then it does start to get expensive.
Get hold of a decent damp meter, or get a professional to give it a good going over before you start anything so that you know what you're getting into.
Sorry to be a pessimist but we've seen lots of examples of damp running rife unseen.
This I am going to try first. I'm waiting to see if the leak has stopped. Nothing to lose.If it is floor effect vinyl carefully run a knife down the edges and peel back. Inspect the wet area and either dry it out or cut it out and replace with new timber and plywood. Refit original wood effect vinyl with spray glue adhesive. Cost of materials = £30 ?
Ci riviera 141....very attached to it.It’s impossible to say how bad the damage is without investigating it further. That may well be a daunting thought because you simply don’t know how bad it can get. But, you have to bear in mind that everything can be repaired and when it comes to this type of thing, it’s often not as expensive as you think.
I’ve no idea what make your motorhome is Dafydd but, they are most commonly constructed in similar fashion - wood, polystyrene and wallboard. See it in those terms and you’ll find the job is much simpler than you think.
First job is to peel the floor covering back to find out how much the water has got into the wood.
I think I would rather do it myself...the insurance is low at the moment.2K sounds a bit too expensive to me also. Due to the problem being caused by your side locker not being shut properly allowing water to leak in causing this damage you may be able to claim on your motorhome insurance because this could be classed as accidental damage and not caused intentionally (it was an accident). Its worth making a friendly call to your motorhome insurance company and talking about the problem whilst keeping in mind a possible loss of some no claims bonus unless protected.
............... but can you control the damn thing!!!I have a multi tool!
