Checking for water leaks

Today's RV Travel tip was about regular maintenance to prevent water leaks. They mentioned having it done once a year.

I know there is a process whereby they fill your unit with air, spray something on the outside, and look for bubbles, and these would indicate any leaks where water can get in. I might have even read about it on this forum.

This sounds like a good thing to do. Does anyone know what this process is called, in case I want to Google it in our area? It's hard to look for something if you don't know what it's called.

Thanks. These people sell the system for several thousand dollars. I did find a mobile company that travels around the U.S. and does it for you, so I contacted them for more information.

Sealtech is also available at many places that sell campers and service them. Click on the map for one near where you are.

Unfortunately there is not one near us, but I will see what happens when the mobile one replies.

I do remember someone on this forum did it themselves. Try a search.
