Captin Tolley’s Journal
Stop caravan window leaks
Window seal leaks are some of the most common caravans suffer from. These are usually caused by tiny hairline cracks and gaps forming in the window seals.
Rather than having to go through the hassle of removing and replacing the window seal, they can be easily fixed instead using Capatain Tolley’s.
Captain Tolley’s is a hyper-liquid sealant that flows into tiny hairline cracks that cause leaks. Once in place it creates a permanent, clear and flexible seal that stands up to the elements for years.

How to use:
Apply Captain Tolley’s slowly all the way around the seams of the window at the join where the windscreen rubber meets the body of the caravan. The sealant is extremely viscous (runny) so apply carefully.
If the you see the sealant disappearing quickly into a particular area then this shows you where the leak is originating from. Apply further sealant to these areas in half an hour intervals until no more can be absorbed.
Repeat this process, but this time on the side where the glass meets the rubber.
If the sealant has dribbled onto the bodywork, wipe it off immediately with a damp cloth. If you leave this until it has dried you will have to use white/methylated spirits.
Wait 24 hours for it to cure. Whilst it cures the conditions must be dry and frost free.
After 24 hours a permanent, clear seal will have formed. To test it, give it a hose down. If there is still some residual leaking then repeat the process again.
