Our recently purchased 84 Toyota has a metal roof that has been coated with something. Also the seal caulk is starting to peel. What is my best approach to trying to fix this up?

Oh, the ladder is coming loose on one side. This can't be good on any level.

I am thinking of just having it all professionally repaired.

Ladder is pulling off! Sounds like you have some issues with dry rot in the frameing. Good luck - let us know how you make out.

.....scrub surface where you put caulk on roof.....ladders are usually loose-get a longer screw and try that or you may have a rotten support.....make sure you caulk under the ladder legs....geofkaye

I need to have my fridge's propane repaired. How are RV service managers about giving the whole rig a going over to check out problems. Am I just asking for "things?"

Eddielee, I have been to Newport - to the Rogue Brewery to be exact. How are things there?

If the reason the caulk and stuff was pasted on the roof was to cover a crack, then you need to be sure the crack has not gotten longer. If you find any cracks in sheet metal, take a small drill bit, maybe 3/16" in size, and drill a hole at the end of the crack. This will keep it from getting longer over time as the road vibrations work on it. Drilling the hole gives a stress relief point aso the crack can't extend from that point. Then recoat, caulk, or Eternabond the roof over the crack to seal it up.
