I used eternabond on every seam except the two along the side.. look at the photo and you can see the very little tape that shows on the front seam... not enough to bother me and I know I'll never have a leak problem there.

It is also paintable, so I may get a spray can and touch up anything that shows

I agree that Eternabond is great stuff. My only questions is what happens when you need to remove it? What happens when you have a roof vent or fan sealed up with Eternabond tape and need to remove it?

Hi George

I was told by Monaco that for the longer strips of Eternabord they loosen one end and try and roll the end around a bottle. From here they attempt to remove it in one go by wrapping it around the bottle all the way.

Otherwise there is only one solution ( my favorite): Brute force and ignorance

As described earlier, I would use a glazing knife while being very careful not to damage the surface on which it sticks to. Remove whatever you can get of with a solvent.

A while back one of the more experienced IRV2 members recommended to me 3M General purpose adhesive cleaner. You can buy this in some of the bigger autoparts shops. I have used this many times and I am pleased with the product. Be sure to protect your fingers when using it - it is strong stuff.

Time to roll up the sleeves and get started

It it's a roof vent or a fan, I would easily be able to razor blade it around the seam and lift the item out. Once replaced I would use eternabond again as it sticks very well to itself. You also don't have to worry too much about removing all the old caulking to start with as you can simply tape over it.

I'm not pretending for a minute that my rig will win the most beautiful roof award... I used the gray eternabond and it actually looks like duct tape... but as long as i don't have to worry about moisture/rain getting in ... I'm quite happy with it.

Take a look at VegasDan's last post in this thread
Started renovation on Tradewinds

That's EternaBond on those seams. Looks good to me.
