I think you mean Eternabond tape....and yes, it is a great product.

Another thought is maybe you mean "either"-bunny? But that is next spring...

For roof repairs and sealing over joints, Eternabond does great. It does require that you clean the surface properly.

and use the heavy metal roller - that really makes it seal well !

these people seem to have the best prices and were good to deal with.

I used 4" for all the seams - gutters and around skylights etc as it seemed to give me a good overlap.

There are other manufacturers of that type of tape that are much cheaper and just as good..

It's great, but be aware you only get one shot. Clean surface, line up the tape and pull the liner. Once it comes in contact, you really can't pull it up again like masking tape and re-apply. That's the 'eterna'(l) part of the bond. I had nasty multiple applications of Dicor self leveling caulk on my cap/roof seams front and back. I got all that off with a heat gun and putty knife, then put down 4" Eternabond. Much cleaner, and now I can go faster, too!

really yours went faster - mine didn't - wonder what I did wrong - I did notice my MPG went up though - maybe that is the difference between the 2" & the 4" tape ?

seriously though it does work - they do recommend that if you have tape going side to side on the cap for instance - you do add a bead of something like proflexrv - to stop the edge lifting in the wind.

But overall - it works really well - I did all the normal places and also down the length of the coach on the gutter seams - looks really tidy now. Like most things prep is everything. I also found that leaving the tape in the sun for a while made it easier and also only pulling the backing off a foot at a time whilst laying it down really helped not getting it misaligned - cos once down it really will not come back off.

VegasDan put it on his Tradewinds back in 2010 and it has held up well. Look at post # 81 in this thread for a picture Started renovation on Tradewinds

Perhaps a PM to Dan and he will tell how hard it was to install.

As a RV reprimand, I will also recommend the eternal bond. Clean and dry, and if needed warm the surface prior to installation. Have patched, repaired many a torn roof with this product. It is always "in stock" on my truck.
