Rubber roof

A few years ago I was told rubber roof were bad and had to have a sealant put on them every year.

Is this still true? I live in a hot dry climate(southern AZ) do I have to put a sealant in every year? ? The coach is new if that matters thanks

OK, I'll ask the obvious. Who told you that?

I had a 5er for 10 years that had a rubber roof. I was always told that it should be cleaned and a rubber roof treatment applied every year. Maybe the "treatment" is the sealer you mention. I only had this done twice in the 10 year period and the roof was still in excellent condition when I sold it a few months ago. It was always kept outside. It sounds like someone is trying to sell you some service that may not be absolutely necessary. JMHO.

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!

The couple types of membrane roof installs for the RV industry holds up very well. I think the owners that live under these type roof units are very happy. Fleetwood uses this type cover and I have had mine in place 18 years with one full coating installed last year to extend the life for several more years while I save for a new membrane.

What you were told was intentionally misleading;
Rubber roof should be inspected annually, any seams- around antennas, end caps, vents etc should be caulked with a self-leveling sealant made for rubber roofs. Takes about an hour, at most two. ... My rubber roof is 13 years old, and looks fine, still works good.. (I do inspect/clean my roof twice a year)
