The tube floor has two slow leaks at the edges of an existing patch where it crosses a "weld seam" between two tubes. I used soapy water to find them. The floor goes flat after an hour. I suspect that the patch failed because the previous owner applied when the floor was deflated, so inflation of the tubes pulls the patch up at the seam. I was planning to force some of the repair kit adhesive into to the leak spots but think it will probably fail again with several inflation cycles. I have a roll of "Gorilla Tape" on my shelf and wondered if anyone's used it for small leaks.
