Roof torn...patching advice.

Was washing my camper after getting home from camping and I noticed that my roof had been torn. I know it came from a tree at the camping grounds we were at. How do I patch this? It is a very small tear in the lining on my roof. A pic is include and any help would be greatly appreciated.

Clean up around the tear. Apply use a roller to press it down
Good for the life of roof. Comes in various roll widths. I keep some in the trailer always

Use Eternabond cleaner first to remove residues and debris; then use Eternabond primer to ensure excellent adhesion. After applying the tape, seal areound it with Eternabond sealant caulk (excellent stuff/stays somewhat plyable; doesnt harden and deteriorate like Dicor).

You will be fixed for the life of the roof.

As Roadrunner said Eternabond Tape, it will be your friend. As stated make sure you roll over it real good, this is how the proper bond is created, watch a few Youtube videos.
