floor caulking

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.

well welcome to the forums ,, and welcome to the world of rving oddity's ,, yes u will find this kinda stuff and even more as u go along ,, first can u see light thru the crack??? that will help us make a decision on the type of caulk to use ,, if it DOES NOT ,, i would IMO ,, just use plane old Dap caulking ,, u can get at any home improv. store ,, then jut smooth it dow with a putty knife ,,, and then i would lay a good sealing tape over it ,,, but we need to know about above ,, it's kinda a whole diff ball game there...

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.
