Sorry to hear that, In this case I would clean the spot up good smooth the rubber out and clean it good all around the patch area. Use the dicor all over the tear itself and let it dry. When that dries put the eternabond patch over the area carefully folding it from the edge over after its down go around the edge of that with more dicor. Make the patch larger than the area you need.

Think about things before you do them make life easier not harder.

The roof throughout the industry is stated as a "one piece membrane roof". Insurance should 'replace in kind 'IAW typical policies.

Had a similar hole in the house roof from a tree limb.
It could be repaired like I did the house, except I use shingles on the house of course.
I had some thin flat sheet metal from a left over project, you can buy it at Ace, Home Depot, etc.
Cut a piece of the sheet metal larger than the hole, construction adhesive it in place.
Eternabond to cover the area of the outer membrane and Dicor the edges of the eternabond.
If you dont want to use sheet metal you can use the plastic from a garage sale sign or similar.

Just be careful. Watch the dealer. I live in Ohio and ended up taking our camper back to Forest River to get fixed at 1/4 the cost and a 2 day fix time versus 6 to 8 weeks at the dealer. This was to replace the entire front with bunk.

The insurance co. should replace your roof. What insurance co. do you have? If they don't replace it like they should I would file a complaint with the state insurance board, then they will replace it. A complaint causes their rating to go down and they don't like that. LOL
