Does eternabond mess up the warranty on the roof. I think it's like a 10 year warranty. They're always coming up with excuses on why they won't honor the warranty.

Anyone have any experience on this?

Are you talking about if you need to repair the roof?

Yep. If I need a roof repair, would it still be covered or would they say "you modified it so we can't honor the warranty. "

I would call a dealer; but if you are using it in place of the normal yearly caulking of vents, etc., than I can't see how it would.

I just purchased a 4" wide roll of eternabond to install two MaxxAir Fans. Very easy to cut any width (I cut 2" wide strips) with arazor blade. Spent a lot of time cleanng surfaces with acetone. It is sticky --but if you take your time it isn't a problem. The best price I found was at Best Materials® | Roofing Supplies, Roofing Materials, Caulking, Sealants, Backer Rod, Waterproofing, and Rubber Roofing --- Very fast service
Time will tell if it lives up to its description

Just make sure you clean the entire area you are going to put the tape on with acetone.

I just finished sealing all the edges and dicor caulking around the skylights and vents on our new 2015 Rockwood. It's great insurance and the 4 inch tape works just fine. I did it on our 2005 HiLo the year we bought it and never leaked a drop. I'm a believer. Definitely recommend it (Clean with Acetone first)

Is the tape covered on both sides or is it like a roll of duct tape? I notice when I try to cut duct tape lengthwise the glue will stick to the scissors. If this eternabond tape is as sticky as they say it is then it seems to me it would be hard to cut.

I ordered a roll of 2" from Amazon and it should be coming next week. I will also pick up a can of Acetone to clean with.

The front corner trim piece is going to cause me some problems as I noticed that it sticks up when they bent the trim over the curve of the roof. They globbed a whole lot of silicone into it and I hope I can get the tape over that spot ok. I understand that once this stuff touches a surface it sticks. I sure hate to screw up with a wrinkle or a fold onto itself while I am applying it.

Any tips on how to work with this stuff?

Thanks,

Vin.
