Henry tropical silicone roof coating reviews

My dad's 2002 designer jayco's roof has done a good job, but needs some help. Looking for reviews and heard of anouther Jayco owner on Facebook that used Henrys tropical coating and seemed happy with it. Looking for feedback or other suggestions that don't involve expensive systems since that camper is older. Thanks

Well all I can say is dont ever expect to put anything else on it. I bought a used cargo trailer that had this on the roof, went to do some repairs and Dicor or even Eternabond tape would not even stick to it!

We decided to order Hengs

After stopping by a dealer who said they don't deal with roof coatings(they only worked on newer rvs), we did more research and ordered 2 gallons of Hengs roof coating in the orange can. If you have a rubber roof you should not use a elastometric coating. Depending on timing I'll try to get some pics.

Make sure you prep with Dicor RPCRPQ EPDM Rubber Roofing Coating System roof Cleaner/Activator . A 2600psi preasure washer at a 30 deg angle works good . Apply when not too hot and under cover when sunny because it can dry fast . If you have a feel for house painting this product will work out fine . Prep work takes the most time to having a goog end product .

Not saying you're wrong, but why prep EPDM ROOF CLEANER if its a TPO roof?

Because in 02 it was EPDM....

Right from a 2002 owner's manual:

EXTERIOR ROOF
Two different types of roof material are used on Jayco campers; rubber EPDM or millfinished aluminum

YEP: 2006 is 4 years newer than 2002....JAYCO switched.

I thought they used the same roofing in 2002 through 2006 and beyond being TPO. MY mistake. Good to know.

I've been looking to treat my TPO roof, no leaks, but im getting mixed reviews on everything. Was thinking about using Henry's tropi-cool silicone, but some people complain that eterna bond wont stick to it if you need to use that. And some have complained that it wasnt mixed properly leaving clumps of discolored blobs in cans. I dont mind spending a couple hundred bucks doing this, it just a 20 ft trailer. So what products are recommended for my 2006 TPO roof?

I had read that Jayco (and perhaps other mfg's) had issues with TPO and somewhere around 2007~2008 they went back to EPDM. However somewhere along the line they went back again to TPO. I am not sure of the year models, however I suggest that you can check by removing an interior vent and looking at the material. EPDM has a black under layer and is smoother, TPO is solid white (at least for most, some may have a black felt like under layer... not sure) and has an orange peel like surface. ~CA

My neighbor down the street bought a 5 gal. of Henrys coating. He cut it in and put 2 coats on his rigs roof. He said he was not happy with the roller and ended up using a regular paint brush.

It did look good and 2 years later he is still happy with it.

I am not sold on it until do more reading!

I bought a roof coating to hide the one-piece metal roof of a cargo trailer that I converted into a stealth RV. Impressed with this roof seal and although it sounded like we were visiting put the heavy stuff thereon, it spread over what we thought it might. We were ready to pack a complete three coats in our 29-foot, two-gallon RV.
