Rubber Roof Leak...HELP.

Hello there,

I am new to this forum so I hope I am doing this right. However, I have a 96 Southwind and have a leak. I think I have located the general area...around the satalite. I pulled back the dicor sealant and the wood base is soaked along with the wood portion of the roof around that area. Can I cut away the old rubber roof section away from the affected area and patch it? If so, what is the best product? I welcome any advise.

Thank you for your help

Cutting away the rubber roof material is a bad idea in my opinion. The leak is most likely where the satellite antenna is bolted to the roof. Remove the antenna mounting plate and reseal the area with DiCor or Eternabond tape; then reinstall the antenna array.

For large width eternabond try:

EternaBond RoofSeal

They make sheets up to 4 feet wide if you have already cut a hole that big.
