I could by another trailer for that much, anyway, I decided to do it myself and video tape it to help anyone else that might need to do the same thing. I hope this video helps someone out, if so, leave me a comment so I dont feel like my work was in vain.. take care and good luck

The main line of defense against water damage is vigilanc...

In this case the EPDM rubber was still in decent shape; it was simply a caulk failure at a seam which caused a leak.
