• The recent weeks have seen a few minor fettlings including a complete re-sealing of the entire shower room. I wasn't happy just fixing the troublesome tenth of a millimeter that was letting water so laboriously removed all the sealing before even more laboriously masking the entire room and then applying a new bead of Sikaflex into every joint.

    Worthy of note - the reason the joint 'failed' was that when I first did the job I sealed the the shower room in stages and the problem arose where I sealed one run over a joint that had previously set. It seems Sikaflex 512 will firmly adhere to just about anything, but not itself! The moral is that it's probably worth doing jobs that need to be absolutely watertight in one continuous run.

    The time taken in masking was - in my estimation anyway - well worth it. The finished job is watertight and neat. We should be good for a few years now.

    Just back from a short birdwatching trip where everything behaved just as it should.

Tweaks and fixes are an ongoing part of the project. This series of pages form a blog - of sorts - and is intended to give a flavour of the day-to-day realities of living with the truck as issues crop up and tweaks and fixes progress. Many of the posts eventually end up getting written up properly and included in the main body of the Trip Truck site; so if you think you have read any of the older posts somewhere else, you almost certainly have.
