I am replaceing my shower skylight because of a 6 inch crack. I've got it ordered from the dealer, should be in in a week. When I go to install it I assume I'll need to put caulk around the flange before I stick it on and then self leveling caulk all around it. Has any one used enternal bond tape to install a syklight? If so what did you do? </div></BLOCKQUOTE>
A couple of years ago, we had a 5th wheel that had a leaking roof vent that needed replacing. I "carefully" removed the old caulking using a small metal putty knife and heat gun on low setting directed towards the putty knife at an angle. I then cleaned the area with Dawn liquid soap and warm water, allowing to dry. We then purchased a 4"x50ft roll of Eternabond tape and cut strips to size, a 1/2" wide roll of 2-sided sticky butyl tape for placing under the new vent and a small roller for rolling the Eternabond tape after applying. You can get the above items here buy calling them or ordering online. There will be some left over but keep it on hand for future jobs/vents, etc. http://www.bestmaterials.com/roof_repair.aspx
The RVupgrades link on this forum also sells the Eternabond tape. Click on this link a do a search for Eternabond.http://www.rvupgradestore.com/index....S&Category=225
Once you see how well this stuff works, you will probably want to use it on other things on the roof.
