I just had all the penetrations stripped and recaulked; took the tech two days. The only thing we did not do was the roof edge seam where it meets the sidewall. He said usually not a problem. I accepted that at the time, I'm not the expert, but does that make sense? I'm thinking I should get some kind of tape or strip seam sealer and do those seems. I've heard of Eternabond, don't know what it is, and before I start running around to RV shops, would like to see if anyone on this GREAT website can give me some suggestions.

blacktie - We all hate roof issues, and there are existing roof repair threads worth reading. For example, if you use the "find" button at page top and type in "eternabond", I think this would be an interesting place to start. Best of luck

Hi Ken,
Like previously posted, Eternabond is a good choice for all roof seams. RV Upgrades had the best price, when I made my purchase.
