rubber roof repair question

For all you experts, my roof seems to be peeling back from the front cap and rear edge but only on the outside edges. Can I / should I just use Eterna bond tape until I can spen the time to redo the whole roof? Worried about leaks since the area needing repair is right at the seam where the trim piece mounts over the rubber roof.
Thanks for all the help

From the looks of pictures you need to do something before the wood crumbles under the rubber roof.
The widest tape on seams may grab enough good roof for now.

Glue down the loose rubber sheeting as best you can and tape or caulk over it the gaps and any splits you see. I'm a big fan of Eternabond, but for temporary repair of this problem, plain old rubber roof lap sealant will do just as well as tape.

But you need to get in there and fix the wood damage ASAP.
