It's refreshing to hear that something is in the works. I sent our dealer a quote on the coating process last week. I know they sent around 30 pics over a month ago, but it he cracks are difficult to see. The combination of the bright sun on the white roof and the mere fact that all these cracks are "micro cracks" are hard to see in pics, but quickly noted on inspection. I'll try to get some more pictures myself in the morning and forward to dealer.

A group of you should set up your units at a very busy intersection close to MFG or a large FR dealer with huge signs attached stating the roof problems...This will get some attention.

I'm sure that would get the ball rolling. This process reminds me of trying to get a life insurance company to pay out a million dollar policy.

My wife's idea, which I'm quickly becoming fond of, is to have some "informational T shirts" made up and wear them to the RV super show in Tampa this winter.

Great idea....Hope I never have to go this far with any company to get them to take care of a concern...But!

Well hopefully we can put this thread to rest soon. I spoke with the dealer today and they said they just received authorization to have our roof coated at RVroof.com. It's the spray on coating with a 20 yr. warranty. We have to drive it to Jacksonville for the coating, but feel sure that will seal her up good. It's slightly cheaper than replacing the roof. I'll keep you posted on its progress. Should be a few weeks before we get in.

I will. They will tear all the equipment off the roof, remove all of the factory caulks and sealants, take pics and coat. The front and rear end cap seams will be covered over an additional 6 inches and down the side to the awning/gutter rails.

4g......because of this thread, I went on my roof last week for a full inspection not only myself but with an RV tech friend of mine. We fine toothed my roof and did find a place that needed re caulked on the front cap. But I had no mcro cracks and the roof was in great shape cause you had me worried.

So when you have this done, I would really like to see the results and keep it in mind for the future in case we ever have an issue.

Otherwise I can tell you we love our 3010ds.

Glad to hear. I'll keep everyone posted. We are scheduled on the 12th. Should take three days for prep, spray and cure. The only negative issue I see is if you ever have to replace a vent opening frame or vent pipe. It would be need to be done at the shop where it was applied since you have to take it off with an angle grinder. But, I would think replacing a vent frame would be rare.

So glad to hear you are finally getting your roof fixed. Wonder how many Sunseeker owners went on their roofs to check. I did.
As rvroof does the work, would love to see pictures. Please post or email. Sounds as if you need all roof mods done prior to a new roof. Would this coating prevent one from installing vent covers or replacing a bat wing with a Jack antenna? Does this mean you no longer need to check caulking? Let us know if there is a noise reduction or better insulation properties?
Hope all goes well and the results are fab. Good luck from South Carolina.
