Roof Damage

We unfortunately received a call from our storage place that tree/branch had fallen and hit our little 145 RB. I thought we had lucked out with only a few scratches and dents. But when I got inside I saw that a smaller branch had gone through the roof and partially tore off one of the cabinets over the bed. The hole is about 5 inches. Anyone that has had roof damage once it was repaired was it good, or was there leaking issues from that point on?

The only other possible issue I could see is there was a branch resting on the propane house from the tank to the regulators, I think Iíll just replace that as the hose couldnít cost that much and why take chances.

Does your insurance apply or the storage facilities?

My experience is that a properly and promptly completed repair will not allow any more damage.

X2 on insurance. I went with Progressive as I have Comp for storage damage or theft and only switch on collision when I am ready to hit the road.
As to repair. I would think that you or some one versed in repair on rvs could pull back the roof, install plywood as needed and patch with a piece of roofing held in place with adhesive and Etearnabond . Inside should be cabinet work. Your dealer could probably order a new cabinet.

I would guess less than 2,000$ total if you have a dealer do it. A bit more if the inside ceiling needs structural work and you need to replace the whole ceiling to get it right.

I have insurance, my preference would be to take it to the dealer where I bought it as they are a jayco dealer. My concern is mainly once repaired will I still have to worry about water getting in or not.

I'd think that could be repaired pretty easy pending structural roof damage that can't be seen.

A few pieces of eternabond would keep it water tight.
