Ditto on the nice job. When I was cleaning the roof a few weeks ago, I noticed some of the caulk around the skylight was starting to develop some small cracks. Nothing all the way through the caulk, but I thought I would apply the eternabond. Off to Camping World... I couldn't find any eternabond and asked. The counter person acted like they never heard of it (no surprise), but said they recently switched to carrying only dicor products. Dicor does make tape similar to the eternabond. I bought it and applied it. It looks like the eternabond I've used in the past so we'll see how it holds up. It did seem less sticky at first, but once I started pressing it down, it got really sticky. It seems like it will work. I'll try to keep everyone posted.

Willis great job! This is #1 on my to do list while the TT is still new and the caulk/sealer is relatively clean. One question, when you say you cleaned the area with acetone before applying, did you clean the caulk itself with acetone or just the area to either side of it?

I cleaned both the caulk (as best I could) and the roof area. When layering I wiped the tape too. Didn't seem to hurt the caulk at all as acetone evaporates almost instantly.

I see you used 8" tape on the end seams. Would 6" be sufficient or is 8" the only way to do it without overlapping?

Just finished my tape job and I used the "Seam Kit" 6 inch EBtape. It covered fine except for the area around the Satellite Antenna. I needed a 4 inch tape patch there. Photos when I get back up on the roof.

Dumb question...
Is this stuff forever? or would you need to replace it like you would reg. caulk? We just bought a new tt 2011 and I have read all the good things about this stuff, but don't want to void any warranty etc. by using it...just wondering what the norm. is for keeping the tt in the best shape over the years and during warranty period? thanks in advance.
BTW it looks way better...nice job

If done right it's supposed to last "essentially" forever (25 years or something). Having dealt with leaks and caulking on a popup, I will be doing this on my new TT in the fall. As others have mentioned I plan to apply it over the existing new caulk for an extra layer of protection. Then just inspect the roof yearly for any issues but no more yearly caulking and worry.

Ditto. If there was more than a yearly "look see" it would not be worth the money.

I hated the caulk. It looked like crap going on; it was messy to apply; stuck to everything but the roof; and within a week it was covered with mildew.
