Rubber Roof/Electrical Questions, Can you help?

I recently bought a 32' Coachman Catalina. The rubber roof has quite a few places that have either torn or seperated. Where can I find something to repair it? Also having some issues with not getting 12 volt to the fuel pump, also when plugged into the shoreline power, I have nothing coming in. Thanks ahead of time for your reply.

You can't use just anything. Not every ad sticks to the rubber roof. They make some special tape, you can get at the RV dealers. That would take care of the tears. Sounds like you need a whole roof. I would be very concerned about the sub-structure. Replacement roof are very expensive....$4-5k. A better solution may be a product called "Liquid Roof", made by Proguard Coatings". It not cheap, but lasts a long time, and you can do it yourself for around $500. Gives you a whole replacement roof on top of your old roof.

You should check you mains on the AC, maybe your transfer switch. Some rigs have a main thermal breaker before everything.

Find out the condition of the roof and if in good shape, use something like 'Eternabond' tape (or Peel-n-Seal) to seal the tears and seperations, then use the Liquid Roof as mentioned above. This'll prolly get you another 8-10 years of use..

Roof: If it has multiple problems, I would glue down (use EPDM grade adhesive) and then completely re-coat with a product like Liquid Roof, Koolseal RV, etc.

Fuel pump: engine or generator pump? Whichever, what is the year and make of the RV chassis or generator?

Shore power: Get a voltmeter and start checking to see how far the power gets. First try at the 120v load center (breaker panel) and see if it has power there. If not, move back toward the power cord. If the coach has a automatic transfer switch, that's a good place to check. And, do you have power when you run the generator?
