Roof repair questions.

My 1989 Shasta class A, basement model has a rubber roof over the main part of the coach, and fiberglass over the cockpit section with a bump up to the coach roof. You can see a picture here. Dial up beware! You can skip ahead to page 47 to see the roof line that I am trying to describe.


The questions lie where the fiberglass cap and the rubber roof meet I habe a small leak, there it a band the goes across the roof where the cap meets the coach roof that I'm guessing secures the two. This area has a small leak seen after the interior roof was removed. There is a band where the front meets the fiberglass roof that I think may be leaking as well. There is what looks to be snow coat that has been applied, and since lifted on the bands on the roof.

I was thinking of cleaning all the old snow coat off the bands and taking them up to lay eternabond with the white color under them and then screwing them back down. Or if I can't get the bands off for some reason, getting it wide enough to lay over them maybe?

I notice eternabound makes a window seal as well. Thinking of trying it to seal the window frames to the fiberglass cap.

Any of this sound like a really bad idea? Will eternabond stick to a rubber roof?

I was thinking

The only thing to use on the EDPM roof is rubber EDPM caulk! Anything else will damage the roof. When they put mine back together the band at the seam had that dope puddy they use on the seams of windows and doors, anyway they put that on the band. screw it down good and tight and run a bead of rubber on both sides and thats it. Mine has been that way for almost four years now and No leaks.
