Underbelly moisture barrier tears/rips

Hello,


While looking at the underbelly of my trailer (2016 x213), I noticed a number of tears in what I assume is the moisture barrier (see attached photo). I assume this comes from rocks/stick that get kicked up while driving.


I assume that I should do something to patch this, but what? Should I use the red "Tuck Tape"? Some sort of caulking? Eternabond tape seems like overkill for this.


I guess I need to add this to my post-trip checklist as well.


Thanks,

Paul

I'll look for some on ours, thanks. I think a good cleaning and a shot of glue to hold the peeled back dings better before the final layer.

Good call on the glue... I might try some PL Premium to attach it before taping it down (or I guess "up" in this case)

spray some glue and duct tape ... this receipe is not only goof for this thin barrier but its also strong enough to hold the coroplast together when you have to slice it for repairs
