Roof

There are multiple types of RV Roofs:

  1. EPDM (Most common) made by Dicor
  2. Bri-Tek (EPDM only harder) also made by Dicor
  3. Fiberglass
  4. Metal roof

The roof is one of the least maintained parts of the RV but causes the most damage if a leak goes undetected. Maintenance is simple:

  1. Wash the roof at least once a year
  2. Check all of the lap sealant to ensure its not cracked, missing, or hard. Replace or add as needed.
  3. Check for cuts, rips, gaps, etc… and use eternabond tape, etc… to seal up the surface
  4. Check around A/C’s area for pooling water
  5. Verify around End Caps and Edges that there is no pooling water

Check out the images to the right. They are of roofs that are in need of replacing .
