Well getting back to the roof repair.

What I want to do is a skylight over the shower area to give me more head room.That will take out the vent that is there.So I will have to locate a vent somewhere else in the motor home.I was thinking a good place would be in the kitchen/bed room area.The type of vent I was considering is one of those Maxx-vent style with the rain detector.These new holes cut into the roof are going to be framed in and supported with new roof bows.





This is the side plate that I have been trying to decribe to Dan and Lorna that sandwiched the luan and is riveted.



But back to the welding and fab of those roof bows and cutouts.I am going to farm out that work to a fab shop and it is very important that I locate them now.It is equally important that I seam seal,primer,and coat the roof very soon.I need overnite temps of 50 degrees and rain free nights for it to cure correctly.Question is if I have the fab shop weld in the new roof bows/frame work and don't do the roof cutouts right away,can I do thoses after I have coated the roof?.I feel the pressure with the weather time running out and need to finally make a move on this.But I don't want to ruin the work of resealing the roof.

Any comments/input about cutting the opennings after I coat the roof with Snow Roof coating and a factor of ruining the the coating???.

Buddy, i would wait till after the welding is done before you coat the roof. Welding could set the coating on fire! Not a good thing, If you follow!! Another thing is that the reason for a vent in the bathroom is to remove the moisture from a shower or bath. I would move the vent over to give the room for the skylight and then have the vent somewhere in that bathroom area. If ya want another vent for the kitchen area put one there and it would help to draw a breeze into the home at night. Good luck, Dan
