That's where I'd start if it were me. Your roof material is only 4 years old.

I'd caulk the screw heads or put some Extendabond tape over it.

I am hopeful you can fix it this way.

Keep us posted.

Get some pictures when you can.

Best regards,
Doug

I'm not familar with "Extendabond tape".., but another option is "Eternabond" roof seal/repair tape and is used throughout the RV industry.

Eternabond tape is a great alternative in lieu of caulking on the roof, lasts much longer and requires little if any attention once properly applied. I've used this sealer tape on my TT roof/cap seams.

Yes,
Bob I meant Eternabond lol. I am getting old here. Thanks for correction.

I found the best pricing on Amazon.com or you can get it at your local Grainger.

Best regards,
Doug

Doug,

I wasn't sure, because there is an "Extendabond" product out there..., just not sure I would use it on an RV roof
