I have no idea what a "paint sealer" is for the rubber roof...
im with you on that , its IMHO just another money pit created by the industry

Are you guys using the self leveling sealant for the edge seams where the rubber roof meets the walls?

Personally I would use Eternabond tape once and never need to worry about it again...

How much

I did have a leak that was caught early and believe it or not it wasn't one of the dozens or feet of caulking, it was failure of the membrane itself. Water was leaking through the membrane. Now I don't have the rubber membrane or ANY caulking. And don't believe the 12 year warranty on new rubber roofs. With a failure of my membrane at 5 years the warranty coverage that was offered was $227.00. What is joke.

Sleeping is much more enjoyable for me now without worrying about where the water is coming in.

How much was that service?

tear

Found about a one inch hole in my rubber membrane...
I think I got in a fight with a tree...

Anyway, ordered EternaBond tape..but will duct tape it until it arrives.

$170.00/linear ft. Not cheap, but a lot cheaper than a destroyed RV due to a leak. And no more checking dozens of feet of caulking, scraping old caulking out, and resealing. I had mine done in Madison, MS in January 2016.

Ready to roll. Wash when needed with Dawn. Nothing else required.
