Roof holding water at rear corners

My roof is holding water at the rear corners where the sealant is stacked up in the shape of an (L). Has anyone just filled in the corners to basically make a filled triangle with dicor to allow the water to run off. This even happens when I raise the front while camping.

If the roof is not leaking does a small amount of water pooled make a difference. You could use some self leveling decor to smooth out the area.

My thinking is if you have standing water and have any small defect or break in the weatherproofing you are asking for trouble. I would rather be proactive.

Proactive? Roof?

Eternabond...

Roof preventive maintenance

x2 on what rsdata said.

What he means is get a roll of eternabond tape. Remove the Dicor in the corners and replace with eternabond tape. This will allow the water to run off while making a great seal against water intrusion into your roof.

This is the way to it, but I would do as I did , cleaned it and ran 6 tape over the rear cap seal and I also did the front cap seal and all the penetrations you wont have worry about it anymore, there is always pockets that water will collect, even through it will disipate, why take the chance, cheaper then a new roof over time.

It's been my painful experience that standing water on a roof eventually finds its way in. My roof looks great and ive spent lots of time and effort sealing it, yet every time it rains my fingers are crossed.
