Finally stopped that pesky leak!

When we bought our MH a few months ago there was a pretty bad roof water leak in the bath area. I got up there and inspected every roof opening but could not see anywhere the water could be getting in. The MH has a one-piece fiberglass roof. All the existing seals looked good.

Finally in desperation I bought a 50' roll of the 4" Eternabond roof sealing tape and two tubes of the Dicor 502LSW self-leveling sealant and went to work on that sucker! I resealed all the large openings, air conditioners, vents, etc., with the Eternabond tape. Then I used the self-leveling sealant and resealed all the smaller openings such as TV antenna, vents, etc.

Well, last night we had a gully-washer (southern for heavy rain) and I was very nervous when I went in there this morning. SHAZAM! No evidence of leaks!

Good Job. You should be good to go now for quite awhile. Yep, that is a good feeling when you can take a Toad Croaker and come out bone dry. One area I was concerned with our's was the smoked plexiglas Shower cover on the roof. I believe it was a matter of time before a leak would show up---the seal just didn't look that good. The Eternabone tape made it look like new. I try to do a short inspection/touchup once a year with the Dicor.
