questions about roof repair 2002 37' wildwood

I recently purchased a 2002 37' wildwood. The previous owner didn't shovel the snow this past winter and one of the roof supports collapsed. I have a couple questions. 1. Is there a video on how to remove and repair the roof. 2. Where can I buy the needed materials.
Thanks.

First off welcome to the forums.
Most of what you will need can be bought at Lowes or home Depot.
What type of roof is it?

minocqua welcome to the forum, if you scroll to the top of this page you will see a search box, enter 'roof repair' and you will get a list of forum threads on the topic, also there are many videos on the subject at youtube.com. Home Depot or Lowe's will have the wood you need and check with your local RV service location for the rubber roofing material.

I am finishing the replacement of the entire roof system on it. The original roof was a vinyl roofing with a felt backing. The worst possible in the world. The roof did not have any noticeable leaks but water wicked up from almost every screw hole. The entire left side was rotten and some of the right side. I replaced everything from the ceiling up. I made my own trusses out of 2x6's, cut and spliced every wire in the ceiling (about 60 wires), installed new ceiling, insulation and sheeting on the roof and am putting on a self adhesive roofing made by Mule Hide.
What a pain in the ass but is better than new.
