Bays,Water, Insulation,Slideout trays, 450LXi
I bought some new carpet and had it bound for the bays.
On removing the old carpet, a small spongy area prompted a 2 inch cut through the vinyl.
The pictures tell "The rest of the story"
The slideouts were screwed though the vinyl and wood into the insulation where it wound up nicely and then through the stainless sheet on the bottom with a large washer.
No attempt to hit a stainless tube or seal the holes. (Not done at factory)
Fortunately bay 3 only had rot on the curb side of the Webasto. No holes were ever drilled on the road side of Bay 3.
Also interesting that the front bay only has 2 extra 1.5 by 2 tube braces .

So - foam insulation, 1/2 marine ply / epoxy / caulking and then finally the new carpet.

(There was a water leak years ago that BB had trouble repairing.)
