Roof Repair

Ok, so I screwed up.

We strapped our kayak to the roof of my brand new pop up, and it shifted during travel, and poked a couple of holes in the roof.

What is the best to repair them? I was thinking I might use a fiberglass patch, but didn't know if some good old fashioned window calk might work as well? Did know if the fiberglass might damage the roof more.

Nevermind, quick Google search did the trick.

Thank you friend!

it is in a tube for a caulk gun. Just spread it in the hole and it will set up. It isn't going to look pretty but that ship has sailed. Fixing it so you don't get water is what you need to do. How big are the holes? they can't be that big are they? have a picture?

Three little holes, none bigger than a dime. I'll get some of this this weekend. I realize it won't be that purty, but...

Whatcha gonna do? Makes me mad becuase we traded our last camper due to water damage through the roof. I swore I was going to be so vigilant with this one.

Did I mention is was BRAND NEW?

How about Eternabond? It would look cleaner, and might work better than slopping lap sealant over the hole.

Well I hope he doesn't "slop" it on..lol...If there is a hole I personally would want to fill it with something as opposed to covering it. Maybe eternabond overtop ofthe dicor would be best but unlikely to find eternabond locally.

I personally like eternabond for seams but maybe it would work well for holes

Will this Dicor be good to use on the other seams and around the vent hood and such? Is this what you use instead of caulk?
