Rubber roof sealant/conditioner

I have a 2012 grey wolf 28bhks that I bought in January of 2018. Can anyone recommend a good RV service place that would be able to scrub to roof and put on rubber roof sealant/conditioner? All ready spoke with Brooks in connellsville. K RV in Jeannette does not offer that service. And help would be appreciated.

Have you considered doing this project yourself? There are many video's on Utube that cover the steps. Here is a link to just one.

I resealed the roof on a 2001 Dutchmen a few years ago. It was a hard hot job working on the roof for two days. If you plan to DIY replace or reseal all the seams before applying the roof coating and tape off all the edges.

It's a bit of a pain to do it yourself but I went ahead and re-coated the roof on my old trailer. Like mentioned before, it's a two day job but worth it when you consider the average cost of having someone else do it at an average "Shop Rate" somewhere between $85-$120/hr.

I purchased an EPDM roof coating from Camping World (I did this about 8 years ago so I think the product was made by Carlisle(?).

Consisted of a cleaner/primer and a gallon of liquid EPDM material in a bright white. Required a good cleaning of the roof to remove all oxidized material, application of the primer and a rinse. When completely dry, then apply the EPDY with a roller. Difficult parts were working around A/C cover and all the vents. Took a lot of patience. If I were to do it again I'd rent a large garage so I could work in a covered space. It was hot, working on the roof during full sun. I figure I saved about a grand by doing it myself. Product itself wasn't cheap but it was in great shape when I sold my trailer after 6 years.

FWIW, if your edge trim/gutters are bedded in a putty like material, this would be a good time to remove, clean off all the sealer/putty and then replace AFTER re-coating the roof. In our environment in the PNW mold/mildew and even moss can start growing in this caulk/putty and by removing before coating then re-installing after roof has cured makes for a nice finished look.
