We have them for Auto, but they won't insure our RV b/c it's seasonal. You would think that poses much less risk for them since we don't tow it around.

Our p/u truck and auto (and home) are insured by AAA. I don't understand the business logic that would not also insure my RV. But then I'm just an old retired systems engineer used to logic and rules, and not a business marketeering expert.

Yes sir take off the duck tape clean with acetone and tape with Tape- Kote 4" seam tape then coat with Safe-t-plex acrylic elastomeric rv roof coating, here in fl. you don't want to scimp on your roof.

Or anywhere.
Water intrusion is the reason most campers in junk yards got there.

I will investigate Tape-Kote and Safe-T-Plex if I ever reroof or need to repair it.

Currently my EB tape is doing just fine.

Thanks.

I have $250 deductable on my RV insurance comprehensive and collision with Progressive. I feel fortunate to have this.

I hope you are comfortable with your decisions on this repair. The tech guys on this forum can talk you through a lot of fixing-up and modification. I learn a lot from them, but realize my personal limitations and experience.

I installed OC's awning poles easily. I'd personally hesitate to take apart a broken hub assembly, rebuild my air condtioner, or replace my floor. Some repairs are beyond my comfort zone.

Very good a brand new roof for a grand sounds good wonder what it would cost if you had to pay up out of your own pocket.

DDC,
Of course you are right, $1000 is a good deal for a new roof. The total was $5600 for our new roof, including new luan plywood top and the Dicor rubber membrane.

The new roof membrane is smooth-surfaced and white, while the original roof was very textured and kind of light gray.

Thanks to all for good advice and how-to tips. We now have an emergency repair kit with Eternabond tape, Eternaspray, acetone and Dicor lap caulk. Never knew about these products...

Happy RVing!!

Ron
