Eternabond

I'm buying some Eternabond roof sealer. I've heard that it works well. After putting it in my cart at Amazon I see that there are also a spray cleaner and a surface primer.
Has anyone used Eternals and would you recommend the cleaner and primer?

You can use mineral spirits for the cleaner. Wash the area with some kind of soap and water or carwash soap. Dry it completely. Then use the mineral spirits to get it very very clean. I used the Eternabond on my roof seems. It's a good product. Use a roller for sure. As far as the primer I would suggest you use it. I have a small area (quarter size) where the Eternabond has come unbonded. I did a good cleaning job and rolled it as described above. I recently bought a can of the primer. I plan to cut the loose area out and use the primer with a new section of Eternabond. Some have had great success without the primer but occasionally others have had a few areas do like mine did. So to be safe I would use the primer. None of this however takes the place of getting the surface completely clean. Have fun. It's not to tough.

I scrubbed and made sure the surface was clean, wiped it down with acetone, and applied the Eternabond tape to the joint between fiberglass cap and EDPM roof. That was 3 years ago and it's still tightly bonded to both surfaces.

I used Thetford bug/tar black streak remover. Which is essentially Greased Lightning. Spray it on, scrub it off, and then go back over the area with a damp towel to remove any residue.

We applied it to our 2002 Beaver fiberglass roof using the same process... In 2013, when we traded the coach the Eternabond was still bonded!! (Cleaning and surface prep is everything!)

It's good to run a small bead of Dicor 502LSW self-leveling sealant around the edges of the Eternabond, especially anywhere there's a seam over an uneven surface!

Two things.

Acetone and a window screen roller.

Any soap ir cleaner will leave something behind as that is how it works...It binds to the surface and prevents it sticking so the surface will have a coating.

Acetone will cut just about anything so use it and do it outside as it is like gas...It can burn.

Use a roller for window screen repair to burnish in the tape as it puts high pressure in tiny spot.

Just finishing up my Eternabond tape project. I also used the Eternabond primer glue which I would recommend. I also did the front and rear end cap seams. Not a perfect job but I think it looks ok.

Yes! The tape only holds as well as the surface has been prepped. The tape is not cheap, why cheap-out on the preparation phase? I assume you want this to last for a long time. Follow application directions exactly for the best results.
