Water build up on roof with cover?
Hello all, this will be our first winter with an RV and we plan on covering it. We are in the Pacific Northwest, so we will undoubtedly get a day or so of rain....
We had some serious rain last week and I found a leak in the both the AC unit and one of the back vents. Turns out the AC gasket was bad and the rear vent window had a crack. Fixed both over the weekend with the few hours of sun we had and went ahead and resealed everything on the roof with RV sealent from Dicor roof sealant. Since I knew we were not going to have enough time to let it dry I purchased a huge 20x30 tarp and covered it. I used a few buckets and pieces of wood to make sure there were no areas that the water would accumulate, but even with that I can still see a few areas with puddles that I have had to go out there and pull on the tarp to drain them. I have the tarp pretty tight and still have areas of puddles like in the back where the 2 vents are (bathroom, bedroom) which have a luggage rack type tubing around them. Its almost like a framed pool. My question is this, as soon as that sealant is dry I plan on purchasing a cover like the Adco brand ones and put it on there for the winter. I am assuming I will have the same issues with puddling. Has this become a problem for anyone? Should I try and build risers or more buckets to make sure the water pours down the sides and doesn't sit in puddles?
Any thoughts would be helpful.
