Eternabond install summary
I have started applying Eternabond on the top seams of my motorhome.
I have completed the long sides. I have read that some people have said that it is easy and takes just about 3 hours to apply. Wrong. I don't know how. The Eternabond itself was easy to apply. It is the prep work of cleaning that takes so long. On just the 2 top side seams, I have put in about 7 hours and have top end seams to do yet. I used the Iternabond cleaner and rubbed and rubbed to get the old caulking cleaned. Before applying Eternabond I used blue masking tape in order to keep a straight line. Because of the location of the refrigerator vent and the skylight, I removed the caulking from one side, before applying. Because of bending over and using my knees and up and down, today I can't hardly walk. I guess I am getting too old for this kind of work. So today is a rest day. Tomorrow I will tackle the ends. I will need to do the skylight and other pretrutions at a later date.
Question: My MH, along the top ends and top sides where the rubber meets the aluminum side flashing, the is a 1/2" metal strip where there is about 200 screws holding it in place. When I lay the Eternabond on top of the screws, it is tenting on top of the screws. In reading the instructions, it talks about using a pin to puncture to remove tenting. This does not seem practical. Should I just push down around the screws, the best that I can and leave it?
No fun. But hopefully, the seams will never leak. Which it has never leaked yet to this point. After completion, I will never have to apply caulking on the seams.
