So I scraped the roof of my 2018 Cardinal 3350 5er on a tree branch and damaged the rubber roof. Not sure if the photo will upload correctly, but mostly on the edge where the roof liner curves down around the edge, Itís a line of scrapes, exposing the roof underneath. Largest hole about 1 square inch.
Tape? Dicor? Entire roof rubber replacement?
Thanks everyone fo your help.

I would use Eternabond tape. Clean the area well, apply tape over damaged area and call it good.

I did the same thing except instead of a tree branch it was a basketball hoop.
I used eternabond tape and ran a bead of self leveling caulk made for rubber roofs around the edges of the eternabond tape-good as new!

Just a thought, but if your insurance will cover a roof replacement, it's a perfect time to have RV Armor or a similar roof product installed. Cheaper than a new rubber roof and never have to worry about a roof leak again. Just a thought.

I heard that if the Titanic had eternabond tape on-board, they wouldn't have sunk. Never used it, but I guess it's unbeatable.

OP here. Just to close the loop on this, I submitted a claim to my insurance company. Roof replacement in the works. OEM TPO replacement (est. $9K), costs me my $188 deductible. Woohoo!!
