Unhappy 31BHDS Travel Trailer w/TPO main roof leaking

Just about to close it down at the campground for the camping season and with the snow and ice and then melting, starting leaking over the main bed. I know there is a low spot on the roof right about where it leak along the seam across the width of camper.

Surely not a good time to try to patch it, but hate to leave it that way until next April!

Looking for best advice at this time??

Eternabond. You must fix it or you will have a major problem come spring. Good luck

I second the Eternabond. Pretty much the only quick fix.

Only problem is getting the roof cleaned off to apply it properly - in the cold? I was thinking maybe to put a tarp, at least anchored across that section, which should help? I only have until Sunday when the campground closes.

Jack the front high enough so it will run off. Use some blocking under the chassis to take pressure off the axle's. You can use tape or put a board across with some weight on it just to tie you over till spring. If you are in a very windy area tarps can flap around and do a lot of damage. Good Luck with solving your problem!

You will be ok putting it on in the cold. Just clean the surface really well. Eternabond also makes a product called Eternaclean. It comes as an aerosol. Use that then apply the tape.

Take a hair drier with you to make sure it's dry and it will warm the area up some.
