Eternabond or Dicor?

I have a small (about 2 mm) v shaped tear in my roof of our 06 fleetwood DP. Should be easy enough to repair but what do I use? Eternabond (grey) or self leveling Dicor sealant? It is not a hole and I can approximate the edges.

I've never used Eternabond, our last two DSDP's have had BriteTek roofing and it's much tougher than the rubber most others use.

But I'd use Eternabond for that tear.

You could probably go either way on a small tear. Etherbond would definately be safer overall, but Dicor could be fine for a long time, your call.

My vote would be for Eternabond. I keep a roll of white in my RV all the time. Never know when you might need it. Only thing I just found out is the outer layer on Eternabond is TPO. This could be an issue if you decide to EDPM coat your roof. Eternabond says the coating will peel off the Eternabond patch. If and when I re-roof I will probably go with a complete new roof so not an issue for me.

During a hurrican several years ago, a tree branch came down on our coach and punched a hole in the TPO roof. It didn't penetrate the roof, just tore the TPO. Having used Eternabond on several coaches in the past, I simply cut a piece to cover the hole and leave an extra inch around the hole. It has been there for 4 years now without any problems. My suggestion is to use Eternabond.

Thanks for the replies. Another question, what would you clean the area with.
Anybody used the grey eternabond. Is it a lot darker than the white. I'm not sure my roof is white but not sure it is grey either. I know it's not black😚

Eternabond makes a aerosol spray cleaner you spray on and wipe off. You can order it when you order the tape. By the way, you can call them direct. Their technical support is very good.

Ok, got some 4" eternabond, cleaner and roller and a tube of Dicor. Will attack the small tear.
Was surprised that except for the Dicor I couldn't find the stuff at any RV shop, even CW. But found that most roofing supply companies carry it. But 50ft for a 2mm tear😱
