Roof repair

What kind of roof material is on this coachman? Looks like some kind of vinyl or fabric. Went to patch roof yesterday thinking maybe I could just seal it for now but found roof in much worse shape , The old paint which looks like Elastomeric Roof coating had torn places & had rolled back in several places.
The calking or maybe this stuff, White BLACK JACK Elastomeric Roof Patching Cement had held up but the coating was shot.
So I pressure washed the entire roof getting all old coating paint off. (what a mess on the ground)
Now I can see every tear & hole with some a little larger. Let it dry in the sun yesterday but today it may rain so I put a tarp on last night.
The ends look sealed as well as around vents etc. thinking of not removing that & just add to with the White BLACK JACK Elastomeric Roof Patching Cement with mesh & use the White Black Jack coating over top as well .
Think it will work? I sure hope so. Any imput would be great.
To me this looks like the material that was used before. Don't know how long ago that was.

If someone has coated it, and badly, and it's peeling, you need to remove it all. Every bit of it otherwise nothing will stick.
If it's rubber, it will be chalky. You could just patch the holes with EternaBond tape. If all the white is gone and it's now down to the black of the rubber, you need to coat or get a new roof.
Even if it's vinyl roof, you can patch it too.

I see no need to coat the whole roof. TPO does not really degrade.
