Fixing RV Wall Delamination with the Epoxy Injection Method
Legal and Privacy Statement
Repairing a delaminated RV wall can be a daunting task. The best way is turn it over to an RV dealer and have them replace the entire sidewall. However, the cost can run into the tens of thousands of dollars. For many RV owners spending this much money does not make sense, or is not practical. But there is an option- repairing the delaminated wall using a do-it-yourself RV Delmaination Repair Kit.
We have become familiar with just such a kit produced by Composet Products L.L.C. Their kits have the well respected RV specific Composet SLV™ epoxy resin system. While their are a number of general purpose epoxies on the market, in our experience and opinion Composet SLV™ is the right choice that gives you the best chance of a successful repair...and has a proven track record in RV wall repair.
Here are a few pictures showing you how these kits work: For more information on DIY wall repair kits visit:
