I purchased mine new a couple months ago and in my last trip did not see the tree branch hanging over the site as I was backing in. As a result I now have a 6" tear in the rubber on the roof in my new camper. I temporarily sealed it with the tube of lap sealer I had and I just made the call to the insurance company so we will see how it goes. I still have not made an appointment with the shop to get it fixed.

I had a tree limb go through my old trailers roof Insurance adjuster said can't be patched and claimed it was going to cost more than the trailer was worth. Mind you it was a 1996 and this was in 2014 so it was 18 yrs old. They gave me a settlement and I kept the trailer patched the roof with Dicor and eterna bond then sold the trailer. Told the people what I did showed them and I still see them and it hasn't had a leak yet.

Eternabond is in place over the tear, and I've also sealed the seam around the whole roof and some of the accessories on the roof (vents, etc).

Tomorrow night I'll probably finish w/ the dicor around the edges of the tape.

I hope this is a temporary fix, the last place you want to skimp is on a roof...

Looks good to me. I've seen a lot of people use eternabond permanently. I've used it on the previous TT with no problems. Just do a search and it will yield numerous threads, recommendations, and pics. Why do you say you hope it's a temp fix?

I don't think I'd question a guy that does RV roofing for a living...
