Roof repair

I have a 1991 30 ft Itasca MH with small holes in the roof. I notice some water in the ceil of the back bedroom and decided to fix it. I removed the 1/8 plywood ceiling and found the foam insultation. There was some water in it so I removed it. Then there was another 1/8 layer of plywood, which I removed to find small holes in the metal roof. I have patched the roof with a liquid sealer I was told to use on my shower when I was making the shower. I am now thinking I should do something to the whole roof. Any ideas of what to use on the top of the roof? I am worried about the piping that goes around the back section of the roof and connects to the ladder. It screws in to the roof and from the bedroom it looks like it just screws through the thin metal roof. I was thinking of putting blocks to screw in to.

Here is what I used to redo our 13 year old roof this past summer. I am pleased with how it turned out. Good luck and keep us posted.

Aluminum roof can be repaired with 'peel n seal' aluminum tape available at Lowes. I used it outside and inside. Then coat the roof seams with Ultima available at/through Menards. Then, when it doesnt leak anymore, you can coat the entire thing with an aluminized roof coating.

Thats how I did mine..
