New or old, all RVs and trailers have the same maintenance inspection schedule required each year for weatherproofing seals & sealants to prevent RV leaks.
We provide RV owners with fast, convenient RV service and repair. Specializing in exterior Leak Testing, inspection and maintenance products as part of your regular seasonal maintenance program.
Our mobile service area includes; Halton Hills, Hamilton, Niagara Falls to name a few.

What is testing maintenance?
RV ProSeal provides diagnostic water penetration testing, combined with a physical examination. This is the best practice in leak prevention of exterior seal & sealant maintenance.
It's not just the roof!
Where ever a hole was cut into all four sidewalls or roof, weather seals and sealants are used for a watertight seal. Sidewall trims, corner joint trims, window & door frames are other vital areas vulnerable to leaks — however, the primary seals behind the trim, are not visible for inspection. Therefore, special testing equipment is required to locate gaps and voids in the seals. When hidden leaks go undetected, heating and cooling efficiencies drop, rot & mold starts and unhealthy living conditions develop.
Living in high moisture and damp environments put the RV and the family's health, comfort or performance at risk.
Multi-point Inspection & Repair
An RV ProSeal Testing can inspect over 58 different areas prone to leaks. We go beyond checking just the roof and windows.
Types of Failures
Weather seals can fail for several reasons; age, improper preparation, choice of sealant and poor application are the top reasons for failure. Therefore, regularly scheduled RV maintenance of the exterior is critical to find sealant failure early.

New technology enables us.
Just like James Bond had "Q" to enable him in difficult situations, we too have our own gadget master named "DP". We bring new testing equipment and repair products to the industry.
Before the invention of slide-outs/pop-outs, pressure leak testing was done to find leaks. However, slide-outs presented a new problem due to the amount of air leakage they can have.
We solved this problem. Thanks to DP, we have advanced equipment to test a slide-out's internal and external seals.
Wood and Luan plywood,
Batt insulation, cloth-backed roof membranes, and OSB, all wick up excess moisture from leaks and condensation. Wet and dry cycles lead to delaminating wood bonds and loose structural support.
This occurs when damp areas don't get a chance to dry out. Brown (dry rot) or white rot thrive at temps between 18- and 32-degrees Celsius, and once it starts growing, it spreads rapidly. Wood shrinks, delaminates and structural support are lost. Soft rot thrives at temps of -17 to 43- degrees celsius.
Things out of people's control are climate, outdoor elements or the number of various spores naturally around us. Mold, however, needs damp conditions to grow. The W.H.O states the best protection and action in our control against health risks associated with mold is to effectively prevent leaks and high moisture levels.
Wet building materials degrade and can emit toxic fumes from formaldehyde, resins, glues and other chemicals. Decomposing wood panels can also release airborne particle pollutants.
Temperature and humidity changes are not well tolerated with the above mentioned building materials, seams, joints and GP sealants. Freeze / thaw damage (ice damming) from winter outdoor storage can make small intrusions larger and can go unaddressed for months.
This is one area of preventative maintenance you don't want to defer. The reality of DIY inspections often results in misjudged seal leaks that remain hidden inside of the RV until the area becomes fully saturated and then exposed. SAVE MONEY using our detailed report to guide your DIY repair or we can do it for you.
RV camping and on-site services are limited to 3 seasons, Spring, Summer and Fall. We serve a regular service area and an extended service area. The extended service zone provides two options: individual and group rates. A group rate includes 2 or more units to be tested at the same time. Call us for more details.
Our regular service areas include as far south as Niagara Falls, west to Brantford (HWY 24), north to Cambridge & Guelph (HWY 7), and east to HWY 400. A higher rate applies outside the regular service area.
Why register for Fall?
Did you know, a new Travel Trailer, 5th Wheel or Motorhome has the same exterior weather seal inspection schedule as an older RV? This will surprise you if you are new to RVing. The RV manufacturers have classified exterior weather seals as maintenance items, requiring regular inspection and preventative maintenance to prevent rain leaks and water damage. Despite your RV dealer's efforts to deliver you a leak-free trailer, exterior seals and sealants become the owner's responsibility responsibility the moment you leave your dealer.
Protect your new pride and joy with a regular RV ProSeal Leak Testing and inspection services as part of your regular inspection and maintenance program.
RV maintenance items include maintaining exterior weatherproofing seams, sealants, and seals to prevent leaks. Water damage due to exterior water seepage or improper maintenance leaves RV owners without warranty or insurance coverage. Manufacturers and RV dealers state that owners are responsible for inspecting and monitoring all external weatherproofing of the roof and sidewall sealants multiple times per year, especially after each road trip. Read your owner's manual section "Exterior Maintenance" to learn more.
Despite RV owners' best efforts to reseal their RV themselves, it often results in additional leaks later due to improper preparation or sealant choice. Leaks often remain trapped between the roof & ceiling material and between walls getting wicked up and rotting materials long before owners see inside evidence. For peace of mind, invite us to leak test your repair as the final step to complete the process. Owners pay a lot of money for an RV and deserve to be served with the best leak prevention, RV maintenance, and protection available.
Poor weather, road conditions and off-road access add significant amounts of mechanical strain on the joints, seams, and sealants protecting you from leaks.
When hidden or visible, sealants often fail to perform but seem in good shape. This leaves owners at a disadvantage to find leaks in time.
RV'ers live a life in the outdoors. Nothing will keep owners up at night more than finding water where it shouldn't be. The real nightmare is how long did it take for the leak show itself?
Does your RV leak but can't find the source?
RV ProSeal testing can help you locate where the intrusion started more effectively, safely, and quickly, without damage or deconstruction.
