So it looks like my 69 was foamed up at 5pm on a Friday.. some areas of foam are as thin as a quarter inch while others are almost two inches. They seem to have started running out towards the front but uneven areas all around. The exterior wall side of the foam has open pores that have absorbed water and anywhere on the roof that had foot traffic and disconnected from the skin.69 foam job

When I did my front panels replacement I did notice that the foam was quit thin on some of the curved front ones , about 3/8" . The only other place I had interior panel off was under the Windows along the dinette . That area was very consistent at 1-1/2" . In neither place was there any adherence issue with the exterior skin . I bought a kit from a spray foam company . It's a bit tricky to get a uniform thickness when you are doing it once and don't have a lot of experience . This sixth panel was better than the first , lol . If I was attempting the entire gutted interior I would hire a professional , there are many in my area that do homes . Of course everything depends on price , and there are some very good kits on the market to DIY .

I'll be going with the pros for sure, I can't use a can of great stuff without getting sticky. I'm running into the issue RoamLab is and making sure I get all the mods and components installed before I foam and skin.

So I'm trying to test the patches to my black tank and noticed I need new expanding rubber bolt grommets at the lower drain connection. What the heck are these things called? Im having trouble with amazon and google.

Well that solved one problem, another just popped up. I'm trying to find the flange to attach to the flat face of the tank outlet and notice that the bolt pattern is 4.25 square on center. Most of the market seems to be 3-3.75... Any ideas? I can if I must plug the old holes but REALLY dont want to add more possible leaks to a poop tank.

I Really wish I could help, as sanitary plumbing problems are not fun but I do not have a black water holding tank in my C10 as it was long gone when I got the camper. I do know if you go to a plumbing specific store vice a "box store" they know their stuff better and may be able to help you find what you need. Good Luck!
