New from Arizona (it's a dry heat, just like your oven!)

    Just purchased a used 1998 Coleman pop up tent trailer, aka Santa Fe. It was hardly used, probably a common thread. An elderly couple (younger than I am) purchased it new in 1999 and used it four times. It was on their "Bucket list" but really never got around to getting out and around due to health reasons. For what ever reason, they stored it in one of those U-Store it warehouses in the Desert. I am sure temperature turned the inside of that storage unit into an oven. The inside was immaculate, but of course, the ABS roof came un-glued while driving it home from California. After reading up on just about every Coleman (later acquired by Fleetwood) roof top either cracking, splitting, delaminating or just plain blowing off the ABS top, I found several easy fixes from coating with Bed liner to resurfacing the top. That's how I discovered this site while doing research on the repair.
    I know I am going to spend countless weeks reading the many threats that are found here. You guys do a great job as just about any problem that has ever been created by a pop up, you can find an answer here. It's a great site. I am glad I discover it. Hope to contribute my fair share as I muddle through the fixes and my screw ups. If I can screw up, you can probably learn from my mistakes and "what not to do" on yours.

    Welcome from the Nature Coast of Florida where our heat isn’t “dry”. Matter of fact it comes with its own water supply. I water my dog with what I wring out of my shirt if I need to be outside for over 4 minutes. Hey, it’s called recycling, don’t hate.
