Back at Christmas we had an Ice Storm that put 4 holes in the roof of one of our trailers. I got some of the ice off the roof and plugged the holes using a can of the spray foam insulation. Yesterday we got a big thaw with a lot of rain, while it was raining I went out and checked the trailer. The temp. plug worked no water coming in. This stuff is a great thing to have in an emergency kit along with Duct tape and some glue. When the weather gets good I will patch this properly but for now its nice to see this worked.
How did the ice storm put the holes in the roof? Did a chunk of falling ice or a tree limb snap off and make the holes? That was smart thinking using the expanding foam as a temporary repair for that situation. The water damage could have been disasterous.

Eternabond. It comes on a roll like tape. I replaced half a rubber roof on a 18' I had and seam was sealed with it. Never any leaks. Once it's stuck it will not come off! Trust me
Eterabond is good stuff. I redid all of my vent covers on our old Rockwood about 6 months ago and bought the big roll of the 4" Eterabond and sealed every seam on the roof. Whoever buys it won't have any roof issues for sure.
4 different tree limbs went through it
I had to get the Eterabond and weather hasn't been cooperative for trying to put it on. Been below zero most nights and not much avove 20 during the day.
The foam made a slight mound in the rubber roof to keep water away from the 4 one inch holes and expanded to above the hole. I also glues itself to the rubber so it seals it.
