    roof tears

    discovered a couple of small roof tears near the edge, 1" long, on our reflection 303.

    What's the best way to patch, dicor and or eternabond tape?

    It's brand new, but assume tears aren't under warranty?

    thanks,

    John

    Patching with eternabond tape could be a permanent solution if applied properly...that's why I carry some with in case of any close encounters with tree limbs.

    Another vote for Eternabond Tape, we also carry a roll with us everywhere we go the stuff is amazing (albeit a little pricey) still worth the cost.

    Don't assume this won't be covered by warranty, show it to your dealer. Unless you know you drove it under some thick, low branches. Maybe move this post to the Tech area?

    here's the tear, doesnt seem too bad but dont want any moisture getting in.
    suggestions?

    also noticed the caulking around the roof ladder looked a little weak, should i cover it over or remove the old stuff and apply new?

    thanks,

    John

    Hi John,

    Thanks for the pics. I was up on my roof today looking at seals. I don't have damage scars like your first pic but have several "cracks" and "open cavities" like in your second pic. Do these go all the way through ? To your question . . . do we cover this over or remove and start fresh ?? Looking to those with experience to guide us on this . . .
