Caulk buildup on front edge of roof.



Wanted to show what the front seam on my roof of the Roo looks like. I'm thinking that it wouldn't hurt to take off all that mess and start with a clean seam of caulk. Opions???

If you apply Eterabond, you don't have to remove it. Just smooth out what's up there and apply as directed. And, it'll look a a whole lot cleaner, and it won't leak.

As long as you are careful removing it I see no issues with it.

Before and after pics when you get'r done.

OMG I THOUGHT MINE WAS BAD!

Looks like they put that stuff on without the camper being level.

On mine, the back looks like this but the front, including seam, vent, antenna, look much better. My guess is that two different techs worked the front and back.

I must have had the same builder on mine as my front seam looks just like that.

My front and rear seams look like that or maybe worse. One good thing about it, it will keep water from pooling at those seams when it rains.

Almost every RV I've owned looked like this. You should have seen the amount of that stuff they used around the TV antenna on the Georgetown. Better a lot of it than not enough. As long as it's on the roof where it can't be seen I really don't care.

Agreed. Mine is like that also. I check the caulk out when washing the roof, and put a little Dicor in the tiny cracks that form when needed.
