Re: Sealing of Joint Between Cap and Top of Van

I had to replace the rear door weatherstripping as well on my 1999. Maybe 20 years is the limit for that particular rubber seal. :roll:

Bath Time!

So, I’m just finishing giving Grace, our B190, her bath - we are taking her to visit the California RV Show in Pomona tomorrow - and I just had to share this shot:
