Yes, I took it to the dealer before contacting insurance and they told me a new roof was in order. They were not going to repair it and be responsible for issue afterwords. They said "I" could silicone it, but they think it would only be temporary. It was basically a crack and a small hole. I was defiantly stoked. It was new enough, 4 years, that I called insurance in hopes they would take care of it.

You will. There is a section in here of beginner bloopers somewhere and they are hilarious. I have an entry too

Thanks for all the input guys, just came back from the dealers, and after talking to a tech there he suggested I use dicor tape. got it in white as trevor43 suggested. He said if I were to bring in there that's what he would use to repair it. And he said it lasts. I also had to pick up some Velcro strips for under the bed slide outs. Seems like every time I pull the tent fold material from under the bed slide out, the Velcro tears or comes unstapled. man between that and putting a hole in the roof, and my black plastic roller slides coming out, I think I'm going to get turned in for camper abuse.

If you think someone is going to call 241-rvs then you should read some of these stories. They will make you chuckle.

Thanks muddauber some of those were pretty funny. My wife said after our 1st 2 camping trips, maybe we should go back to tenting we are just being too rough on the camper.

In the future, instead of using drive in stakes, use the dirt screws.

Thanks coot, I was thinking about using them. when my awning blew off this weekend, I had it attached to the camper not in the ground. I do have the tent peg stakes that came with the camper, but wasn't sure if they would hold in the ground. But those screw in stakes look like they should hold.
