Roof

We have a 2001 Sandpiper that we purchased this summer. On the edges of the roof it is cracking, They are small and the RV Dealership told us to us to use self leveling sealant and brush it out. Just wondering if anyone has any other suggestions?

I would need to see a picture but eternabond tape is a better solution if its practical to use in your application..

Search this forum or you tube eternabond there are videos showing how to apply it, I understand it is really good when used.

Def alot of cracking there. I would prolly get a roll of 1 or 2 inch eternabond tape and go the length with it. Be careful with it. Once its on its on and isnt coming off.. Just prep it right and it should work better then new.

I ordered and used some eternabond tape on e-bay. I patched the radio antenna hole...tree limbs. Seems to work great...time will tell

3" x 50 ft on eBay I think it was $50
internal antenna $4.15 eBay no freight

PS: I saw on here about the wine guard tv antenna rubbing a hole...mmm. It was close. Put some tape under contact areas. ✔️

I had a older camper with the same issue.I did use the tape and worked great.But I used 3" wide tape.Some say use a primer.I didn't
Just used dawn dish soap to clean it. rinse it off good let it dry.Then I used rubbing alcohol after for good adhere.Put the tape on slowly peeling away the plastic as you go.Get your self a small roller to put good pressure through out.
For a piece of mind I got some clear Rv chaulk and did all the ends .
Worked great for me

Just had a tiny issue with a tree .Did the same thing on a newer trailer.
Good luck
