2012 Stealth T2250 EVO by Forest River
Forest River Stealth EVO, came to us with soft floor, upon inspection we found that the floor in bdrm (front of coach) is completely rotted. We pulled down protective Darco (underbelly) which, unfortunately held the water in place keeping the insulation wet. water drained out slowly for 2 days, and insulation was completely soaked., next we removed 2 side panels, exposing rot and A fungus that has grown along the bottom piece of wood, this fungus is also present inside along bdrm wall towards slide out.*** it is Important to state that this was Not from lack of maintenance*** The drip rail with rain gutter drips right above first compartment door where water came thru the compartment door hinges. At this point, and while water is draining, we move into the Bedroom, and remove faux wall, platform bed frame, night stands, and additional floor trim.
