Roof Crack Fix

Well I cleaned up our ntu 2007 1206 last night, and I think I figured out why the previous owner didn't clean the roof. There's a small crack in the front corner of the roof (assuming it's fibreglass). Any recommendations on fixing/sealing? The crack is about 1" long right where the roof turns down on the front of the camper.

Well I'm new here myself and just going through all the forums but maybe I can make a suggestion. It seems from my reading that most owners are caulking cracks and seams. If your crack is only 1", I would think that would be the way to go on yours. I don't think you need to do a whole fiberglass repair, but maybe more experienced users might disagree. Anyway, my suggestion would be to use a specific marine caulk by 3M called 5200. That caulk is actually rated for use below the waterline on boats and is really amazing stuff. Back when I used to rebuild old wood boats (ChrisCrafts) we used it and I can tell you that wood will break before the bond will. It's not cheap, something like $20 for a full sized caulk tube, but I think it also comes in smaller tubes as well. Do not get it on your clothes, it will not come out and will not wash out....ever (don't ask how I know this....) Anyway, that's my idea.

Look on a website forum called www.popupexplorer.com
Search roof repair on there. Fleetwood/Coleman had an entire decade of plastic/PVC roofs. They have a few permanent ways to fix them. In not sure if use caulking on it though. That would eventually leak and if you didn't catch it, you'd be hosed!

...she started talking about how I never listened to her or somethin, I donno, I wasn't really paying attention...
