I think if it were me, I'd order some of the Dicor adhesive, since it is probably a Dicor roof...

Contact cement. If it is a small area, you can buy it in a spray can making it real easy to use.

Most spray cans of contact cement are petro based and a big NO NO on rubber roofs. Get the Dicor stuff.

Thanks for the welcome. I should have introed myself but was looking for some quick help as the roof needed to be button up. The rain comes today.

I passed on the glued down as the area is les than 1'x1.5'

This is our first trailer. It is a 17' prowler. We are going to test the rv way of campimg. (The wife needs a bathroom and solid walls)

Thanks for the help all

LOWELL

Welcome to the irv2.com family Lowell! For more information about your roof covering material visit: Dicor.com. This is their roof treatment and care page, but it has links to all their website.

You are exactly right - - I should have prefaced my statement with the information to be sure and look for the spray on that HAS NO petro base - - it is available and is very convenient. I carry a can at all times along with a regular can of contact for larger repairs should it be needed. I also carry a nice size piece of EPDM. Never know when one of them nasty trees will jump out and snare your roof.
