Repair Rubber Roof

I have a 2016 Rockwood Ultralite 2304DS travel trailer. I believe it has a rubber roof. During last trip we camped under a tree and received a lot of bird donations.

I used "Anywhere" which is a spray cleaner containing chlorine. Don't think I was suppose to do that. I have a spot on the roof that appears to be very thin and wants to tear open.

On the upcoming trip I would like to apply at least a localized coating on that area - if not the whole roof. What is the best material to apply to my rubber roof? Roll on or squeegee?

Any recommendations for application or for care so I do not have this problem again.

How big an area? Any pictures of the damaged area?

The thinning is about the size of a silver dollar. No pics because the trailer is presently covered.

Trying to figure if this is a taped patch or is this the self-leveling pour on material. Very new to roof related work.

Something that small I'd use a piece of Eternabond tape and run some dicor self leveling caulk around the edges. For future cleanings try some warm water and a bit of dawn dish soap. Also, if your roof has a bit of an orange peel look to it, then it's actually TPO roofing. If it's smooth, then it's EDPM. Lots of information here on maintaining either product.

jtaylor1920 - thank you for the reply. Based upon what you said I have a TPO type material. Does the repair technique change if it is TPO?

No, Eternabond will stick to TPO and is approved by Alpha on their roofing materials. Because of the orange peel surface I like to seal the tape edges with Dicor self leveling sealant.

X2 Eternabond. Just prepare the surface as instructed.
