2 questions concerning liquid rubber roof material

I am about to use the Liquid Rubber to re-coat my EPDM roof, and had a couple of questions:
1. If you have done this, have you tried to use the material on the vent covers, fantastic fan covers, A/C covers, etc? If so, how did it work out for you?
2. Have you tried this stuff on the rubber slide out seals? If so, how did that work out for you?

Thanks for any and all input.
Cliff

Does this product have a Name? Most people on this forum use a product called Aerospace 303 Protectant for almost everything on your RV. EDPM roofs are easy to maintain using a Non Petroleum Based Cleaner and a UV Protectant after cleaning.
I would be sceptical about using something called Liquid Rubber.

Google RV Geeks, you will find a bunch of videos on this and other RV Maintenance issues.

It' called "EPDM Liquid Rubber", and it's from Pro Guard Coatings Pro Guard Coatings

Mainly, I was hoping to find out if anyone had used it on their vent covers, etc, when they did their roof. And if it works on slide out seals.
Thanks for your reply, and thanks for the RV Geeks suggestion.

I would not use it on my roof unless I had a leak or similar problem. Certainly would not apply it to the slide seals. All you want on the slides is to put a coating on to protect the rubber from the elements and keep it plyable. Looking at this product, it is to re-coat your roof if you had a leak issue. Kind of like a Paint, not a regular maintenance product.

This product is a better choice. IMHOP..

Product Directions

I would definitely check the product directions before using it on anything other then the roof material.

I applied it to my 17 yr old roof. I sanded 1inch of fiberglass on the sides and caps. I overlapped all side and cap seams. I sanded (100 grit) ALL covers and vents, ac and frig vent and coated them also. It is very thick and heavy to apply. Have a squeege and heavy short bristle paint brush. I had a gallon left over and put it in my deep freeze. Used the leftover a year later to seal some leaks on an old aluminum shipping container. It will stick to anything if surface is scuffed with 100 grit sand paper first.

Thanks for the replies.
Dennis, I use 303 protectant a lot, and like it a lot.

I finished getting the roof covered with the EPDM liquid rubber. It seems to work as advertised. It was quite a job, but I am pleased with the results.
Oldbeek, now that some time has passed since you did yours, how are you satisfied with it? Especially the vent covers, etc.
I have a gallon left over, and I am still trying to decide about using it on the covers.
As far as the seals go, no one seems to have tried it there. Mine are stained black, and I haven't been able to find anything to make them white again, and I was hoping to be able to cover them up with a good quality, flexible, paint. This liquid rubber seems to be as tough as the original roof material, and I thought it might work. Oh well...maybe, if I decide to paint the vent covers with it, I'll also try it on one of the seals and see how it does.
Again, thanks for the replies.
Cliff

You did know your OEM roof had a 12 year warranty.
So yours should have been good until 2019 before any thing needed done to it.

My roof is 8 years older then yours and still is good. Now 14 years and 10 months old. Never under cover.
I do wash it twice a year with water, no soap and use no protection on it.

Still very happy with it covering vents, AC cover ect. Especially like no more black streaks off of edpm. That is the main reason I did it sooner than later.

Thanks, Oldbeek,
That's the same reason I did mine. Supposedly, the chalking doesn't happen with this stuff.
I think I will go ahead and use the extra gallon on the covers, and probably, on one inconspicuous slide seal...see what happens.
Thanks for the replies.
