Insulation

Has anyone replaced a part of the insulation over a heating pad? If so, what did you use, where did you get it and how is it applied (i.e. does the trailer need to be raised)? Many thanks!

I believe the spray on insulation comes out of an aerosol can, it is yellow and then spray pained black. Check the local hardware....https://www.amazon.com/Great-Stuff-9...3204262&sr=8-5

In the factory the trailer is raised on a lift for access for the work underneath, including applying insulation. I think that it would be very difficult spray on insulation without raising the trailer, but just putting it up on ramps and tilting the end you're working on up (i.e. nose-up for the grey waste tank and nose-down for the fresh water tank) would likely be adequate.

Jim after I did the valve replacement and had to cut the insulation away ,I did use the spray to put back but it isnít exactly the same . What Escape used is more industrial . Also before had to seal up some misses from the beginning . But the spray cans are better then nothing . I also painted black again . Pat

Not that I did heat pads, but this is what I used after cutting away a bunch of foam replacing the dump valves. It's messy.
