Loose Roof Channel

Found that my roof was leaking on the driver side behind the front slide. I inspected the roof and found that the channel that the roof Fiberglas sits in, is loose from the side wall.

Contacted Winnebago and asked them on how to resolve the problem. They stated that I have to remove the Fiberglas from the channel to get access to the channels attachment points.

Has anyone ever pulled the roof sheeting out of the channel to access the channel attachment points ?

What problems might I encounter.

BTW. I do have extensive experience with Fiberglas fabrication and repair and I also do all my own maintenance.

Thanks for any suggestions.

Thanks for the links. I believe it shouldn't be to bad to resolve the problem now that I understand it.

I did call Winnebago service to check on them resolving it. The response was ~8 hrs @ $115/hr.

I'll tackle when we get to Joshua Tree in March. Going to rent a scaffold to make things easier.

Thanks again.
