Roof Sealing

We just completed our first trip in our new Sunseeker. All went well, but had some problems getting the TV antenna to rotate. Climbing on the roof to investigate, I found that several areas contained puddles (it had rained the night before) mostly between the roof and the side attach seals. It seems an area just asking for leaks. Has anyone else had this experience or leaks?

I have a 09' Rockwood that does the same thing. No problems at all. Every year just check the seals for cracking and seal it with proper rubber roof caulk if needed. (I presume you have rubber roof?)

Roof Leaks

Not rubber. Might be fiberglass but appears to be metal. Thanks for assurances that your's doesn't leak w/ just yearly maintenance.

Our TT roof is fiberglass and we have similar pooling near skylight over the shower in corner of TT. I add 501 self leveling lap sealer to ensure no leaks. So far no leaks.

Self Leveling Sealant

A great idea. Didn't know that there was a self-leveling sealant, but seems the perfect answer for puddle spots - well, maybe less than perfect; the better way would have been to build it without puddle spots.

Thanks
