my 87 Allegro has a aluminium roof. I have eternabond taped all seams and used dyco 20/20 sealent around odd shapes such as waste tank vents. as of now I am leak free. but I was thinking of coating the roof with kool seal. my only concern is undoing my work if it isn't compatable with the koolseal. What do you all think? Wils

Cool seal and Snow Roof systems are make by the same company.Bring them up with a search on the net and give them a call.I found then to be very supportive.I don't think you would have a problem,but let them confirm it.

I would do like fleamarketer said but having used them before They worked really well but if there was any mickey mousing around with that roof it will not hold as i found out the hard way!! I had a skylight that was held down with pop rivets and no framing at all!! I wondered why i couldn't keep the roof from leaking. Found out the hard way but that was this one's biggest issue. Not all will have that kind of issue. If, i had found that back around say ten years ago, I would have fixed it right the first time!!
Our roof had never been coated before and it was..18 years old then.Now at 28 it has a new roof and now,...They have to fix it again as they screwed up!! I have come to the conclusion that the roofs are the worst issue with these rv's!! My roof was aluminum and is now rubber edpm.

Eternabond says you can caulk over over their stuff, so I can't see why you couldn't snowroof over it. I've used Dicor on my roof and snow roofed over it with good results.

The secret is in the thickness. When I redid my cabover roof vent, I used a whole tube of dicor just to seal the screws and the edge, then ladled the snow roof on with an old plastic cup and used the paint brush to spread it evenly. I then embededed polyester seam tape into the snowroof and coated over it several times.

Roof hasn't leaked since.

Pretty good summer, been fulltiming in the camper since the beginning of June, given me lots of excuses to add improvements to the camper.

Getting ready to retire the old Mobil Temp water heater in favor of a new Suburban Propane 6 Gallon gas unit.

On mine I could get both in and the tailpipes came out forward of the rear axle. Mine is a longer wheelbase but still did it that way! The Mufflers are at about 45 degree angle to fit into the frame but still a close fit! They are about 2 foot long and about a foot wide. about 4-5 inches thick. At an angle they fit like they were made for it!! Custom fitted with the tailpipe coming out the bottom and the inlet coming in the top! like it was made to fit!! Nice and quiet, The tail pipe resonators was made out of Stainless steel and as they turned out not really needed as the exhaust was really quiet with out them but they look great anyway!! they were 4" and about a foot long. Good luck and tell us what you ended up with!! Dan

What sized pipe did they give you?? If under 2 1/2" its really too small. Are you keeping the stock air cleaner?
