Some Jayco dealers will do it on a new one.

Can somebody give me the Amazon link of the caulk I'm supposed to have handy should I find a brittle run of it on my camper this year?

The only reason I would hold back on applying the Eternabond during the warranty period is because I don't want it to become an issue during a potential roof warranty service claim. If Jayco would in writing state that I can use Eternabond in lieu of caulking during the 2-year warranty period, I would apply it as soon as I took delivery of the TT.

I hear you, however, I don't think it's worth the risk. Most caulking issues are spotted after a leak. Inspections of roofs is a general thing just like any roof inspection. You could judge the caulking to be in good shape and have one spot that's not so good and have a leak and damage. I would rather prevent damage than be covered by insurance.

I don't have the Amazon link, but I use the following Dicor products:

Dicor 501 LSW (white) Self-Leveling Lap Sealant for horizontal surfaces like TPO and EPDM roofing material surfaces.

Dicor 551 LSW (white) Non-Leveling/Non-Sag Lap Sealant for vertical surfaces.

Note: Jayco uses at least three different types of roofing material (model specific), confirm the actual material installed on your roof before purchasing a Self-Leveling Lap Sealant thus insuring material compatibility. If you can't find the roofing material data with your owners documents, contact Jayco with your VIN in hand.

Just curious what surface Jayco has that lap sealant wouldn't work on. First I've ever heard of that.

SpeedBump,

I believe the Alpha-Ply roofing material requires a specific type of Self-Leveling/Lap Sealant (in lieu of Dicor 501) sealant because it's membrane composition is different then the conventional EPDM rubber materials. The Alpha-Ply membrane is a combination of plastic and rubber..., it's like having the characteristics of both EPDM and TPO materials.

Well, just completed an Eternabond project today on my BIL's Rockwood Signitiure Series TT.

What I found interesting with the rear roof/cap seam was the stink pipe was dead center along the seam...., not good planning IMO. The two ladder mounts were rather close as well.

The roof/cap trim covers under the caulking were rather tall as well, so I had to overlap two strips of 4" tape to insure adequate contact with the roof/cap surfaces.

Rear seam:







Front seam:



I may add another overlapping 4" tape run on the front seam...., not comfortable with the amount of tape connect on the front fiberglas cap in a couple of spots.

Also, you may have noticed that Eternabond has added a couple of colors to their tape product line.

Bob

Yes..., summer 2012 while camping as a group we got hit with a nasty storm and BIL developed two leaks (new TT). We checked the roof and the factory caulk job was terrible, so we went out and purchased a couple tubes of Dicor and re-caulked the TT at the CG.

We stopped the leaks and BIL decided it's time to order some Eternabond....., he finally did last month. BIL doesn't do ladders or heights, so I took it on.
