Eternabond installation

I have done my front and rear seams. Today I did the 2 roof vents.
I have posted 5 pics showing the progression. Took about 2 hours.

That looks great Norty. I started to do the same thing to my roof this fall. The weather got crappy so I'll have to finish it in the spring. I also got a roll of that seam eliminator for the front seam. Did you do the slide out roof too? I got a 6"wide roll of eternabond for the slide roof outter seam. I'll post pics when I'm done with my project.

Happy New Year!!!

Any prep to the area before adding the tape?

My slides are in good shape. I don't see where they need it.

I think Eternabond is a great material, and have placed it on all the moldings and joints on the roof of my trailer.

If your slide is like mine, there is a rubber seal and wiper that scrapes off excess water and seals against the roof of the slide. In such a situation, I would suggest applying a bead of Proflex caulk - smoothed with a finger - along the leading edge of any Eternabond strips. Otherwise, I think the rubber wiper will eventually stick to the edge of the Eternabond and cause real problems. Be especially sure to clean the roof of the slide well, you want the Eternabond to really, really stick to it.

Nice work, norty! Did you have to remove the old caulk first or can you tape right over it?

Did you run a bead of caulk on the leading edges of the tape?

Hey RVhiker, Happy New Year! The original factory tape was only 3" wide. It did exactly what you describe to the leading edge of the tape. When the slide was fully retracted the rubber wiper would sit right on top of that edge. With the 6"wide tape the leading edge is now about an inch beyond the wiper when fully retracted. I did put Dicor on the leading edge of the tape for added protection.

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 clean it with "Totally Awesome" a cleaner available at most Dollar type stores. Then I scrub the area lightly with a scotch pad with the Eternabond spray cleaner shown in pic #2. Wipe all debris away and apply tape.

I use the wooden wallpaper roller shown in the same pic. to make sure it is pressed down well.

I leave the old caulk in place but remove any high spots with a plastic putty knife.

I use the Eternabond caulk, pictured in the same shot to add a small bead of caulk across the leading edge of the tape. I have done almost my whole rig and a patch with the same can of spray and the small tube of caulk.

note: I have not applied the caulk in picture #5 yet.
