Question Filling in roof low spot

I have a 1.25 foot diameter low spot on the corner of my curved tpo roof where water sits. It holds at most 3/4 of an inch deep water at the center of low spot.

Can I glob on a mass of self-leveling Dicor or something else so water will drain off to the drip track normally ?

How old is your trailer? A low spot would seem to indicate a much bigger problem than simply pooling water.

Cool

I'm really not too concerned because I believe this T.T. has some kind of a Styrofoam fused core curved roof - which likely has a lot of "soft" spots when you walk on them. I try to walk lightly when up there - disappointing, but not a need to "dump" the T.T. yet, unless someone knows better?

The roof on this is a truss roof. Any low spot is a sign of more problems.

It's almost 10 years old. Any leak in that area would be rotten now.

Any kind of soft spot, low spot, is rot. The wood has gotten wet and has started to degrade. This can be fixed but I would not use a self leveling sealant to fix it. You need to get under it and get rid of the rot first otherwise it will only ever spread. Then make sure everything that needs to be sealed is sealed good.

"You need to get under it and get rid of the rot first otherwise it will only ever spread." - You make that sound SO EASY ;-)
