Eternabond Tape on a New camper

I picked up my unit last year and it is still very new. I was thinking that I would like to ensure I have no water leaks start before I notice them. The damage is from the water getting in and then not noticing the leak.

I am wondering if anyone has applied eternabond tape to the roof as a preventive maintenance item? I am concerned it might make the roof look like I fixed a problem. But my thought is it still might be a good idea. I am thinking it will stick extra good to a clean new surface.

I only have a fantastic vent fan, a black tank vent cap, and both sides of the roof edges running the length.

Thoughts?

Vin.

I had the same Idea. My unit just went out of its 1yr warranty and I am planning on adding Eternabond to my roof and vents etc, as soon as it warms up. I plan on doing a roof cleaning and let it dry and then apply. Have heard nothing but good things about it.

I picked up our new unit 8 weeks ago and am "eternabonding" the roof this weekend! Better safe than sorry!

Thanks everyone.

I thought it would be a good idea. Figured it was better to be safe than sorry.

I am going to order up a roll of tape now. Going to get black - 2" wide. Any wider than that and it might be difficult for me to handle. I hear once this tape touches something it sticks and will not come off. Working with a wide piece of tape can be difficult.

It's a great product to put around anything that penetrates your roof. Also, they make longer strips for putting on your seams.

I ordered 4", but probably should get some 2". I didn't realize how unwieldy the 4" would be when trying to place down.

Don't forget you want to be wide enough to cover the Dicor caulking completely over. I am going with the 4" on the front and back and maybe 2" around vents etc.
