Norty1,

Great job!

I have yet to Eternabond my vents......, but my front/rear seams and slide were done a few years back and still look good.

Bob

Eternabond installation

That looks really good.

I have done all the roof openings now except for the ladder, radio antenna, tv antenna and one sewer vent.

They look good and are easy to inspect and recoat with caulk. I'm thinking about leaving them alone as long as I am able to get up there and look around.

I check the side seams regularly and they have never needed any caulking. The factory seal does not appear to have cracked and is tucked under the trim piece all the way down both sides.

I am following this thread https://www.jaycoowners.com/forums/f4...ars-32388.html closely. I may consider doing this to my roof just for the sake of never having to worry about a leak in the future. I'll see how edlanta does and see if he is satisfied after he gets it done.
I hope I am satisfied. I know I am tired of listening to the rain on the roof wondering where the leak will happen. Note I said where no when. I just have zero faith in rubber roofs after my deterioration in a little over 5 years. I know there are lots of RV'ers when 10-12 year old EPDM roofs that are still viable, but I'll bet you a dollar against a donut hole the material was better back then.


When I was touring the RV Flex Armor install facility in Madison, MS this past week I saw a brand new 38' Montana 5'er having the roof done. The owner has the same feeling about rubber roofs that I do.

My install will start this coming Wednesday and be done by Friday morning. I will post progress as I'm planning to take a look see occasionally while it is being done.

One leak source I have had is the crank up TV antenna. Not around the antenna, but through it. I have reported in another thread that that antenna is not going back on. Since I don't use the antenna anyway it is just a pain. I am replacing it with this one: Winegard RoadStar RS-3000 RV TV Antenna.

Would be interesting if an Armor representative (or yourself) could take some work in process pics (R&R, application, etc.), and post them in your original (active) thread....., I'm curious how much of the existing roofing material will be removed.

Check here for some info, and videos, on RV Flex Armor. www.rvroof.com


All of the old roofing material gets removed and any needed repairs done before spraying on the 3/16" thick roof.

I've been following "edatlanta's" thread, and did visit the Flex Armor web site a few weeks ago viewing some before/after pics. I recall seeing a couple pics where there seemed to be a very slight rise in the Armor application in the same place where the EDPM had been cut-back from the repaired area.

So not to hijack this thread, I'll check into what "Ed" experiences/posts over in his thread.

Thanks for the info

Bob
