    Hi all,

    Just received an 2000 Allegro and the Mrs wants new carpet. Removed the bed frame and there is a gap between the rear wall and the floor under the bed.

    I'm thinking this should be caulked; should I use some tape underneath and then caulk from inside. What type caulk?

    Thanks for your help.

    This is my first rv, so I may need more guidance.

    I would be looking for structural changes (like a past wreck damage) for the cause of the 'gap'. It may not be a manufacturer defect. You may get it caulked up just to have it open again later.

    Yes, daylight is visible.
    Very narrow crack; does not appear to be due to collision since it is an even crack in the center of the rear wall.
