We have a 4" x 50' roll on order. Going to do the roof vents and front seam at least.

Just watched your video. Thanks for posting. I probably will do the same to mine as a preventive maintenance project. I don't understand why the roof is designed to pool at the front. So far no issues but I don't want to take a chance.

I did notice there is a 6" available that might work better for the front and back.

One question I have is which Dicor sealant do you use. The self leveling or the non-sag?

It would, but you would only need 16' off of a 50' roll so I just doubled up with the 4".

I used the self leveling on the roof. You glob that stuff on and it will settle into the cracks and smooth over by itself. Plus, I think it will stay more pliable than the non-leveling.

I did the earlier patching of the Dicor you see in the video with the non-leveling stuff and I don't think I like it as much. It is good on the sides since it stays where you put it though.

Thumbs up Great job

About 5 years ago, had a Class C that I did the same type of job, I can appreciate your effort, but well worth it.

Just bought a new fiver, been thinking about doing it while the roof is all nice and new. Question for you my roof is a light tan color have u ever seen different colors in the Eternabond tape.

I believe this will be the first thing I do to any camper or RV I ever buy from now on. Would especially do it while new so there is little cleaning needed before applying.

I checked the Eternabond website and they do make tan: https://www.eternabond.com/RoofSeal-p/cr-rs.htm

Greg-
Thanks for the great video. We just ordered our 2860DS. This will be one of the first things I accomplish after taking delivery.

I've done this to the last 5 campers I have owned. It is the first project I do on a new camper before I take it out.
