Thanks for the feedback and the video link! I watched that one before I started the roof repair.
I forgot to take a finished photo of the 4" strip over the top running the entire length. Monday I will put a thin layer of Dicor at the edge of the tape so the wiper seal does not catch it upon closing.
I have only had the trailer for about 3 weeks and have not driven in the rain. I have not yet found any evidence of water intrusion and this is why I am kinda on a mission to seal it up as best I can to prevent it. Fortunately I have space indoors at work for it so I am able to tend to it as I can. I have an in with the boss (my wife is married to him...)
I am going to replace the torn D-seals and be done with it. What caulk should I use along the top horizontal edge? I seems to be some sort of silicone.
After the new seals are in I'll clean the remaining ones, treat with 303 protectant and coat with baby powder. I have seen videos suggesting the use of powder...any thoughts? I'm thinking it might help prevent further sticking and tearing.
