painting top of slide

Our 5th wheel is an o6 and looks like new inside so we try to take good care of it, My question is can we paint the top of the slide with a roofing paint to better protect it?

Don't think it would hurt anything, make sure you use a good primer that will stick so the paint won't flake off easily. Check it at least annually in case you need to reapply.

It would depend on what material is on the top of the slide. Mine, for instance, is the same rubber roofing that is on the main roof. I would not paint a rubber roof. Proper cleaning and coating of a rubber roof with the appropriate product should do.

We used a product called Liquid Roof on a previous slide roof that had a small tear

This was before we heard of Eternabond Tape

Anyhow, it was a fabulous product and easy to apply - they can be found online if you search for that product - they also have a product called Liquid Rubber but the liquid roof was recommended on their website for what we did

We did the entire slide roof and around all the "things" on the roof also with one gallon - the slide was the couch/dinette huge slide
