No eternabond around air conditioner. There is no dicor covered seam there just a gasket.

How was doing the long gutter seams? I would think it would be a little easier since there is no dicor to clean and scour.
What width of tape did you use?
I bought some 2, 3 and 4 inch tape... I forget what I used where to tell you the truth...

Here is the write up I did last summer/fall
Roof preventive maintanence

Thanks for the link to your post. I think I'll go with the 3" tape on the gutter seams.

The tape on the roof looks nice, but wanted to comment about using it around the gutter seams. I saw a 5th wheel a couple weeks ago that had taped the gutter seams all the way down the front cap and the rear walls. It looked terrible and I could only think that he must have had some major leaks. I doubt that the resale value would be much at all. I would suggest that before you tape the gutter seams maybe someone might be able to post some pics. Maybe there is a nice way to tape seams, but the one I saw I almost .

I used some eternabond, never again on a new trailer, maybe an old one I was fixing up. When I was ready to trade, the dealer saw the Eternabond and immediately asked what happened and what was it hiding. If you ever do have to replace those vents and such, good luck removing that EB.

I put Eternabond on my previous Roo's roof. I sold it privately and the buyer had no concerns because doing all the roof penetrations like jheacox1 did is obviously a preventative measure, not covering a problem. I suspect that dealer was just looking for an excuse to give you a lower trade-in value.

It's not cheap but it's very effective and long lasting.
