    What needs to be done for the extra bits under the van,
    both fresh and grey water tanks are under-slung, can these also be sprayed? or is it a case of greater accuracy spraying?

    Also, any estimated cost for a 6 metre panel van? or at least gallons/litres of the stuff that might be needed?

    luckily I have a mates son willing to do it at work ... saves me getting covered::bigsmile:

    Cheers

    provided you just plan to spray the chassis and outriggers, then 2 or 3 gallons (15litres) will see the job done. try to avoid the obvious places like gearbox and exhaust, but also the suspension parts. spraying plastic water tanks is pointless and spraying the floor is debatable whether theres a benefit or if it will seal in damp making it rot. great if you underseal a brand new van floor, but with an older one, just make absolutely sure its bone dry first

    i am sure you know the above anyway:thumb:

    Thanks Big1,

    the lad knows what he's doing on standard vehicles but not done a converted van before. He did guesstimate 2+ gallons so on the right track.

    And he won't do it unless its been hot and dry for at least a week .....
    some hope with the current weather:cry:

    Cheers

    When I first bought my MH (new) I was advised to go under the chassis and Waxoyl the bottom edges of the side walls, wherever any obvious framework wood was visible. That seemed to make sense to me so I went ahead and did it.

    Even then any damp inside later can't get out.

    It's a real catch 22.
