Talk about odd. We had planned and did go look at a few new rigs today anyway. Wife noticed last night that the bathroom sink was cracked next to the faucet. So, while at selling dealer today (great place), just so happened they had a sink in stock. I emailed the crack pictures to them and they gave me everything I needed to replace it site unseen (no charge). Another example of what a dealer should be.

Not sure if I'll replace the shower or not, but gotta go with what works regardless for now. Won't be back at the shop till April or May so I have until then to figure it out. Wife still prefers the tub regardless, and she knows I don't shy away from tearing into stuff to modify.

The kitchen sink will get axed and replaced regardless. Stay tuned.

Thank you jloco.

New sink is in with way better faucet. This one swivels, which I wanted. Same faucet I put in last rig. Guess I need to start keeping them. I really wanted to ditch the cheap garbage sink, but it's almost impossible to find a good bath sink that'll fit in this small space, plus, the new one was free.

Hoping the kitchen sink will last a few more months.

On the EPDM roofs, we use the ProGuard Liquid Roof. On this TPO roof, we used another product made by ProGuard that you can't buy in any RV store. Similar to the Liquid Roof though. The stuff fills every void, and makes a nice slick surface, and cleans easier than the roof itself. No more lap sealant deteriorating, turning black etc. We used this method while full timing, and I can tell you it looked the same the day we sold it as it did the day it was put on. Of course coated the skylights as well. If you saw my previous mod with the insulation, panel and LED decoration in the ceiling, you'd know why it's coated.

So far, no. Nothing can get to the dicor to deteriorate it. I keep in touch with a dealer that does the same thing to every new unit they get on the lot. Have seen some come back years later, no issues. They use the PG Liquid Roof since everything they sell has EPDM. Looks and goes on the same though. I will take some pictures of mine through out the time of ownership. First will be 6 months exposed to everything and sitting under trees as well. Not the first rig we've done this too, but just want to show the results over time to those who question what I do. If you do chose to go this route, I can give you the contact info and some photos of the product. As I have said before, I like Eternabond and understand why people use it. However, being a mod addict that I am, I want something that I can undo later a little easier, easy to apply, lasts a very long time, and holds up well to all elements.

John, quick question. I have an Alpha Ply roof. PG website only mentions EPDM or TPO for their products. Now for the question, is Alpha Ply and TPO one in the same? Thanks, Terry

I wish I could answer that for sure. Alpha Ply now does the Superflex roof, which according to Alpha, is a type of TPO. I'm not exactly sure what the Alpha Ply was, but I "think" it was a type of TPO also. That's what is on my brother in law's jayco, and due to the lack of chalking and black streaks, I say TPO. EPDM is obvious by the chalk and streaks usually.


What I'd do is contact Alpha and PG. ProGuard is familiar with a lot of roofs. That's how I came up with using the product I did. Contacted, explained what I was doing, what roof I had etc. Alpha could answer the "what is it" question, probably. They did when I asked about the Superflex, which is what is on another roof I'm fixing to do.

Please don't anyone believe the 12 year warranty on rubber roofs being offered on new RV's. At least one manufacturer, I can assure you, offers so little after 5 years in service it isn't even worth the ink it takes to print 12 years on their literature.

No more rubber roof, either material, for me EVER!

Three weeks ago we had a storm pass through the campground where I am hosting and many limbs were knocked down including one 150+ year old oak tree. A couple of the RV's had minor roof damage (small holes/tears from the falling limbs), but no damage other than to the roof membrane. My RV Flex Armor got nothing but clean from all of the rain.

When I purchase another RV it will go straight to the nearest RV Flex Armor application site before I even move in. I consider this upgrade just a required part of the purchase price.

I agree Ed. I'm probably one of their biggest supporters, even though I don't own one. It's just one of those things I wish I could have. Being I'm probably fixing to be out of work and probably never see this kind of income again, it's not an option now or in the near future for us. Neither is a new full time rig unfortunately. So, just going with the best I can do for now.
