Finally the roof is done

YEAH...time to celebrate. Our roof is finally done.

I thought I'd post this to not only thank those who helped with questions we had but for information to future folks who might ponder doing this to their MH that has a fiberglass roof.

Here's what I did:
Replaced both black water tank vents with 360 Siphon vents, prepared the entire roof for new Dicor fiberglass roof coating by resealing the entire roof crown sides (which are right above the gutter) and front & rear cap seams with NuFlex 640. Then applied 4” eternabond 4” tape across front & rear cap seams, then applied self leveling sealant over that. Applied 3 coats of Dicor fiberglass roof coating on the roof sides with a brush, then on top of the roof itself w/a 3/4" nap roller. Replaced front 14” coax antenna, replaced both old bathroom vent covers with new smoked vent covers and replaced full bath vent crank handle assembly. Washed both slide toppers & awning cover, sewed 5” tear on the awning with fishing line right above the entry door, removed cowlings from both A/C units and took garden hose and washed out both cooling radiator units and wiped down everything else until it was clean. Total time with all the incremental steps...4 weeks.

Attached below are 2 photos of the finished roof.

For those of you who are interested, I used this video below as a guide for the procedure:

Things like that always have to make you feel good especially when it comes out looking like new

It looks really good, but your signature says it's a 2012.

Did it need to be done already, or was this more preventative?

Not taking a poke at you or anything, just wondering if this is the norm for a newer fiberglass roof.

Preventative.
When we bought this MH it was in remarkably great shapeóBUTómy wonderful wife & I have some big plans for the coming years with "Gracie" and I've been doing a lot of things so we don't have to worry about the big stuff. Even at only 4 yrs. old & 18K miles, since I didn't have any base line concerning maintenance, I created an extensive punch list of everything I wanted to address. So, i've completely gone through the entire MH since we've bought it (which will be in another post in the near future) but yeah...the roof, caps & side seams are a big deal & I wanted to address that right off the bat. Taking it out on our first week long trip next week over the holidays. I am totally confident and have tested, cleansed, sanitized, lubed, changed and renewed every fluid and every system, but the only thing right now that I'm not sure about or understand fully is our 2 - coach batteries & charging system. But I'll be addressing that in another post after this trip. How's that answer for a simple question?

That looks awesome, I did the front and rear caps with the eternabond tape and dicor sealant , and replaced the bathroom skylight, resealed everything that's mounted to the roof , now I'm trying to decide what to do with the roof itself, looking at yours I think I just figured it out
