Eternabond on rubber roof

Is Eternabond ok to use on older rubber roof? I need to reseal the two main joints. So, do I have to remove all the old sealant or just scrub off the loose stuff?

I had a 92 pace arrow with a rubber roof. I had it on for about 12 years before I sold the coach. Get all the loose off and go for it.

Hi beepaj,
I removed just the loose calk. Make sure the roof is clean where the EternaBond will stick along both sides of the seam. Consider having a helper drop a chalk line where one edge of the EternaBond will go. This helps keep the run straight. Buy the widest roll you can get. I used 4" wide. Buy more than you need. EternaBond is good to have around for unplanned repairs.

I used the 4" EternaBond to reseal all the large openings on the MH when we bought it. I also used it to reseal the openings and to repair a tear in the rubber roof of a 5th wheel we had. It works great!

No, you don't have to remove the old caulk. Just remove any loose stuff and clean the rest with a good non-residue cleaner. I used Acetone on mine.

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!
