Leak roof

We have an older Jayco 5th wheel. Where the fiber glass front and the rubber roof meet, acquired leak. The leak runs into storage cabinets above onto bed. Any suggestions on how to repair greatly appreciated.

EternaBond Tape.

The best option for sure. It is super easy to install and creates an "almost" permanent leak free seal.

The only concern that comes to mind is your rubber roof...not totally sure if it can be installed over rubber.

Dicor is another solution -- probably the most common sealant used on roofs. I have used both.

X2 on Eternabond. I always keep a roll on hand. It's also great for around cable penetrations and the roof laddder mounts. I used 4 " tape on my fiberglass/EPDM seam 2 years ago - no more leaking.

Thanks for the info on Eternobond. No distributor close to us but found one in St. Louis last week. Recommended the tape highly. Have a good camping season.

Eternabond is the way to fix it and forget it.
