Angry Roof Type

I have a 2019 Wildwood DLX 353flfb. There is not any literature as to the type of roof on my unit. EPM or TPO. I got hardly any user manuals with my trailer. Sometimes I got 2 manuals for the same appliance and nothing for other. I need to know the type of roof and maintenance. Forest River is not much help. I tried to find out the make and model of my AC. They told me to climb on the roof and look at the unit. I am in my late 60s and that is the last thing I want to do.

Looking forward to hearing back.

FR doesn't put fiberglass roofs on Wildwoods nor any of their travel trailers. The OP has a Wildwood and posted this thread in the Wildwood sub-forum.

Fiberglass roofs can leak around vents and such, too. Tree limbs and hail can do severe damage to fiberglass. Then you can have stress fractures develop from rough roads and entrances to gas stations and such. That's why it is recommended to inspect all roofs at least a couple times a year.

IMHO, the flexibility of EPDM and TPO roofs has some benefits over fiberglass and you don't need to do monthly repairs. No leaks or repairs on my previous TT with a EPDM roof nor my current TT with TPO.
