    Thank you! It's hard to believe but we're getting close to finishing.

    What did you use as a roof sealant around the penetrations?

    This is what I have used with great success. Getting it off is a messy PIA!! C0308DA8-72E6-4558-950F-B0A8CA2F9EF0.png

    I need some. The existing sealant is really starting to show its age and need to do some PM on it before it leaks. Already removed and replaced most of the rest of the exterior caulk with this exception.

    Not to hijack but make sure if you have EPDM or TPO Roofing. I order my dicor off amazon cause it’s the cheapest I have found. 1tube should do 1 roof vent or about 3 bath/toilet vents. Replace anything plastic while you’re up there.

    @rockcity , for a few dollars more, you can stop by a camper service place and scoop some up too.

    But amazon is the ticket, if you can wait a couple days.

    Get more than you need, and use it all.

    And dont bother trying to make it pretty...that wont happen.

    My roof is all fiberglass, so no issues with a roof membrane, per se.

    But, I did order 8 tubes from Amazon as there are a few seams on the roof I want to redo for peace of mind.

    That stuff works great on metal roofs also it’s what I use on my toy hauler it’s actually cheaper at camping world right down the road from me the Amazon prep your seams with some alcohol and it’s the stickiest stuff ever on your hands but works great

    Had the good fortune of smearing my Croc in some of that sealant before it was setup while I was there. It’s never coming off.

    Next small project was to repair exterior blow out damage and replace fender flairs on both sides.

    I had already cut away the damaged skin..and straightened out the aluminum frame as best I could . 20190903_213748.jpg

    Next, I added externabond tape, foam and glue to patch the hole from the inside out.. 20190904_111008.jpg

    Then I cut a peice of new frp and glued it over everything. Its tight!
    When that dried, I installed the new fender flairs. It ain't perfect, but its good enough.

    I think they'll shine up nicely Ken.

    Too bad I'm not a fan of shiny wheels. But I'll shine them up and keep them, despite my inner demons telling me to spray them black. Lol
