I agree.

In post #4 I mentioned the (what I consider) excessive roof treatment schedule included in the original post.

The cleaning and application of a product 2 times per year could be a contributor to premature material failure. To mention it as a possible cause is not a personal attack. There have been many times in my career where my comments/findings related to failure analysis have not been appreciated. To ignore possible causes may send a roof owner down a road of repeat failure regardless of material brand/type.

FWIW.

I'm doing the same thing you are. I patched my bad spots and will be replacing with rv flex armor as soon as they can get to it after the first of the year. I'm sorry my problem was not caused by a storm so I could claim insurance. The only coverage I get is a ridiculous offer from Alpha Systems as payment for their roof membrane failure after 5 year into a 12 year warranty (warranty haha).
not sure of brand I think it is Alpha It is way to noisy when it rains to be Dicor. The noiest roof we have ever had

My rubber roof issue will be taken care of starting 5-6-2016. I'm having RV Flex Armor installed in Madison, MS. This is sort of a Christmas present to me, but being paid by me. Since I full time the peace of mind is worth it. The install takes 2.5 days.

With all of the rain we have had in the past couple of weeks I sure am looking forward to any reduction in noise from rain on the roof as well. Any reduction will be appreciated however major or minor. Even if no sound reduction the fact that the rubber roof is gone will be good enough for me.

I will never own another RV with a rubber roof. If I buy a new one I will do exactly what I saw two days ago while visiting he RV Flex Armor facility in Madison, MS. I saw a brand new Montana 5th wheel having the rubber roof replaced. I should have done this myself years ago. I was told this happens a lot and I certainly understand why.

Will be interested in your experience. If I ever have to replace mine, this product will be the top contender.

Ed, would you mind posting the approximate cost of this and do they remove the old roof, or just apply the product directly over the old roof. Thanks.

They remove any of the old roof that has deteriorated or needs removal to repair a "wet spot". They spray over the rest. I'm having my crank up TV antenna replaced with a non-crank up omnidirectional Winegard antenna so they will remove the old roof around the old antenna mount area. I never ever use this antenna and it has leaked through it a couple of times in the past 5 years, so it is going away. They replace vent covers as well as a/c gaskets. Their charge is $160.00/linear foot of roof, but this price increases tomorrow to $170.00. I got in just under the wire with the old price even though the work won't be done under this next week.

That's expensive for a 30' trailer, but it sure seems like a great product. Let us know how you like it.

Much cheaper than a new trailer. And cheaper than a new rubber roof.

Left my Designer at the facility to start the RV Flex Armor install. Tomorrow morning they start and tonight it will be stored inside.
