Roof

Have a question about my roof on a 93 Shasta 28 foot. The other night we had a bad rain/wind event when I went out the next morning the front of the cab was covered in flakes. I climbed the ladder and it looks as if the top layer of the rubber roof is starting to flake off. I have no leaks inside and wonder what would be the best coating to put on it to try and save it.

This pretty much says it all

https://www.thedrive.com/reviews/285...s-and-coatings

Youíll need at least two coats if not more, and youíll want to get as much of the loose stuff off as possible without causing further damage.

Probably best to hose it off fairly vigorously, let it dry well, sweep it gently, hit it with a blower, and start rolling on the coating of choice. Itís still probably going to me a mess for the first coat because youíll have lots of flakes on your roller, but after a couple coats it should be well sealed and stable.

Not sure if it is a previous coat or not. The RV was always kept under a shed but I am going to do as suggested and do a couple of coats and see what happens. The weak link is what I am afraid of.

I have been lucky, none of my old steads have rubber.. one is a hard shell fiberglass and the winnebago is a fibr/alum roof laminate..
I have cleaned and coated them for maintence.. as they have aged but not flaked or cracked.

Pick a good coating. I went to tropic cool, BUT it it is silicone based and frowned upon here.. GEt one for the type roof you have.

I used Henry's coating....put the first coat on heavy oe the second coating may not cover well...reason I had to do 3 coats... pics before and after... You'll need 2 gallons of it.
