The Siding on my 1989 PA has started to delaminate. The siding is in two pieces, top and bottom with a piece of black molding across the joint. The siding I assume was glued to the frame members and that has come loose. Im thinking of removing the lower section of siding, attaching a steel strip aprox 2" wide down the length of the unit, centered on the joint of the upper and lower sections,welding or riveting this strip to the frame members then using stainless steel rivets to attach the plastic siding to the steel strip then covering the joint with some sort of rubber trim. Thoughts, Ideas, anyone attempted this sort of repair?
Thanks!

I have the same problem and was planning to do something similar. My plan was to go all the way through to the inside wall, seal both sides and use wide bolts with rubber seals and additional rubber sealant.

Please let me know how your project went and what you think of going all the way through the wall to the inside.

Im having the same problem except its from water getting under. Sides are starting/are warped on drivers side. Also all the storage doors are coming loose with chunks of rust coming loose and falling down. Anybody have even a drawing of what the underside looks like/consists of? so that I dont have to take it completely apart just to get an idea of what I have to do.

mate your problem starts from the roof section there are 4 joiners 1 at each corner you cant get spares for these you make them cut out all the sealant on the roof around the edge this is where all the water us getting in .use a sealant called sikaflex . do not smooth out after appling . cover generously . now the sides . the panel is a fibre glass laminate which has seperated . from the substrate. where it has bubbled out above the bubble cut a slot with a small grinder about 1/2 inch long get a large syringe .mix in a large amount of araldite epoxy glue . inject in slot . cover bubbled area with a large enough plate or wood sheet pess sheet to wall with some jacking arangement . do areas of 1 .1/2 square feet at a time.

I have the same prob with my 90 pace arrow . The whole steal frame is rusted and just falls to the floor in pieces. I can't believe they didn't use galvanized steel. I think the only solution is to replace the whole frame can I use steel studs to replace the steel frame so it doesn't collapse.

You can peel back the fiberglass skin exposing the steel studs and replace them one at a time with 2&2 redwood or steel. It's a nightmare. Can we sue for defective product?
