Trailer damage.

I took my trailer to the dealer Monday to repair some damage due to blowout and fix a small leak in one of the vents.
Just called and said the tech went up on the roof and found two puncture holes and the roof will probably have to be replaced.

I remember the same night I had the blowout a storm came up and a branch falling on the roof woke me up. No apparent damage. And limbs on the ground were all pretty little. No inside wet spots.

Guess the good news is that it is winter and wouldn't be using it for awhile anyway.

That's pretty extreme. I'd climb up and have a look myself. Have the tech show you where they are. A lot of minor tears and punctures are easily repairable by the owner. Don't take their word as gospel as they may be trying to drum up $$ business.

Bummer! At least you are looking at the bright side, so to speak.

If Your insurance don't cover the damage and the holes are small Eternabond tape is the ticket. It's made to repair tears in rubber roofs. Good stuff, once it's down it's down.
Leaks don't always show up inside till it's to late and by then structural damage has been done.

Thanks for the suggestions and thoughts.

Think I will drive over and take a look
tomorrow. Can't imagine that the hole is that bid or I would have had some wet ceilings inside. Have had some serious rains.
