When inspecting my roof, I noticed that the Dicor that the factory spread along the awning edge (curb side) was lifting. Poked around and found dirt underneath.
Click image to enlarge - click on "Full Size" (Upper right) just above "Other Sizes" to see an even bigger picture.
I bought some Eternabond 4" white (large roll) and some Dicor 501 LSW to reseal it.
As you can see, this bolt on section provides the support for the awning.
Problem is, the thin sections of the old Dicor is stuck really well. I want a smooth application of the Eternabond directly to the fiberglass roof, not on top of old Dicor.
How best to get the remaining off that is well stuck to the roof? I have tried a putty knife and razor blades.
Note. I thought about bringing the coach into the dealer, but, I would rather do it myself and MAKE SURE it sticks forever!!
On a 5ver that we used to own, I took a metal putty knife about 1-2 inches wide and angled it at 40-45 degrees. I then took a heatgun on low and let it blow partially on the metal putty knife and the old caulk. It softened the caulk enough that I was able to remove it. The key is to be careful and don't gouge the roof. The n clean per the recommendations of RV Wizard. If you do use the Eternabond(GOOD STUFF), recommend that you also purchase a small wooden/metal roller and rool the tape after its applied.
