The best solution is to remove the spongy wood and replace with marine plywood

one possible fix is to glue(liquid nails) 4x8 vinyl sheets(used for bathroom walls and ceilings) over the spongy wood you should also determine where the support ribs are located and use rust proof exterior ( like deck screws) and put a washer through the screw and screw through the vinyl and sponge wood into the rib/stud to secure the vinyl do this about every 10 inches on the supports

finally caulk the edges and seams and put a lattice type of slat(1inch wide by 3/8 thick by 8 ft long on all exposed seams

tools needed small gig saw variable speed drill
caulking gun

I want to replace canvas on jayco camper


take the camper to a jayco service center and get the correct replacement items for that camper
then it is a matter of removing all the fitting strips to allow removal of the old canvas and the fitment of the new items
a clue her is to when the new canvas id fitted is to leave the camper opened up and to wet the new canvas with silicon fluid and allow it to dry put before folding it away
why , it stops water coming through the canvas when touched in the rain and prevents mould if folded away when wet

Wooden clothes rack shaky


Check the rods to see which are loose and add a tiny amount of wood glue if its possible. Remember put it in the hole where movement is not required for folding and putting away into storage. hope that helps.

How do you fix a soft closing toilet seat where one hinge has become loose, one side has become detatched


Sorry there is no fixing one. the reason the hinge probably came loose is the wood has cracked and/or the wood got wet and rotted and the screws won't stay tightened. Go to Walmart and get you a new seat.

Timberline Knives Kommer Canoe Hatchet where can I buy in uk


I do not know where you can get this, but I always question a desire to use a hatchet on the trail. A small folding saw can do almost all of the same jobs, and is much lighter to carry and much safer to use. If you really need to split larger wood, then a small axe is way way better than a hatchet. When I need one, I take a 2.25 to 2.5 pound axe on a 26-28-inch handle. It can do everything a small hatchet can do and weighs only a few ounces more, while it can also do the work of a full-size axe if I really need it.
SAFETY: A sharp axe is much safer than a dull one because it will cut with less force, and will cut into the wood where and not bounce off.

Roof leak 1999 jayco eagle mod 8333-8715


It is best to get self tapping screws and relocate them. The water leak has destroyed the wood where the factory screws were and a bigger screw will not work. Just move them over a few inches. If the leak was bad enough all of the wood will be routed and should be replaced. Is this on the top seam where the rubber meets the aluminum or is it on the side of the camper near the top?

Grinder question


Use a pencil and straight edge to mark the cutting line on the wood. Place the wood on the saw table and line the mark up with the saw. Place the mark on the right side of the blade to ensure proper cutting. Plug the saw in and put on your safety goggles. Support the wood on the work surface with your left hand, placing it far from the saw blade. Place your right hand on the handle, and push the trigger to start the saw. Move the saw blade down onto the wood. Put constant pressure on the handle to slowly move the blade through the wood. Release the trigger and raise the blade once the cut is complete. Make diagonal cuts in the same manner, by marking the wood and lining the mark up just to the right of the saw blade. Continue as you would for a straight cut. Remove the wood from the saw. Unplug the chop saw and dust the sawdust off. Remove the dust bag from the back and empty it. Vacuum any remaining dust off of the saw.
