Hole in the roof

Noticed this on the way home from a long trip, looks like I got too close to the trees one too many times backing into a site. Doesn't appear anything else was damaged, but I have a hole in the roof membrane to patch, what's the best way to fix this problem?

I would say Eternabond:

RV Leak Repair Tapes & Sealants | EternaBond

Glue the underside to torn area with contact cement to give the tape something trim to grip. You could squeeze a bit of caulk around the edges of the tear before covering with Eternabond. Good thing you saw it early. The Eternabond tape may outlast the roof.

You won't find Eternabond at Camping World but they do carry a clone. Eternabond can be found at Walmart.

The local RV shop had a clone too (said it's 'just as good'). But the forum recommends the Eternabond name brand, so I ordered it direct from the Eternabond website Sunday night, got it yesterday. Not a time to be pinching pennies. Cut off a little piece to practice with, now I have to figure out how to get it unstuck from my workbench.

An acetylene torch, then jack hammer, finish off with a grinder

Just use a Sharpie marking pen and write the words "Eternabond Demo Area" on top of the tape!

Not the prettiest patch job, but certainly better than a leaky roof. Just in time too.

No water in an RV always trumps pretty!

Use a hair drier to remove Eternabond. Do not use caulk under Eternabond. Eternabond won' t stick

I would do every RV owner good to take a big ladder, a little brush, and a lot of time to get a REALLY close look at your roof. You'll see things you might normally miss, I did anyway.
