Help! Tree branch ripped roof during snow storm
Basically as title states, came back from vacation and we had a bad snowstorm in NH. I checked my roof and found that a branch / limb had broke and landed on the ladder of my 3200BHT then proceeded to rub the other side and put two 1" slits on the edge of the roof right at the roof radius. I assume some water got in, but luckily it was over the rear bunk room slide where distance between the roof and the slide opening is not very large. I did call dealer and insurance. Dealer wants me to put an entire new roof on. My concern is that..and entire new roof. I would then be relying on the dealer to seal the two large skylights, the 4 roof vents and then the A/C opening properly as well as the other edges. Very concerning. My thought to fix the problem and how I temporarily fixed it was a piece of eternabond tape. My real fix I think would be to by a 75' x 6" roll and start from the front of the camper with the tape and start in the rain gutter and overlap onto the roof, thus completely sealing the roof to the gutter the entire length and further would probably be better off in the long run. I would do this to both sides and then the front and rear joints? Thoughts?
Or should I get a new roof? BTW....ladder needs to be replaced as it was crushed. There was no structural damage that I can see other than the bent top of the ladder.
