Question 2013 Georgetown roof hit by flying object

While moving our Georgetown to service shop, something hit our roof damaging it. The impact cracked the roof, leaving noticeable cracked area. The insurance adjuster wants to have it patched with some spray on similar to pickup truck bedliners. Can anyone advise us about this kind of repair?

I'm assuming you have an uncoated fiberglass roof. Doesn't sound like the damage is very extensive. There are many repair kits out there, as well as coatings you can use to spot repair or coat the entire roof.
Personally, I would use a fiberglass patch kit and do it myself. Turning in small $$ claims to insurance only causes you problems in the future. If you don't want to DIY, get an estimate from an independent RV service shop/mobile.

2010 Georgetown Roof Damage

Hello - I haven't seen anywhere that tells what is what on an RV roof. I have something that is badly damaged - and there doesn't seem to be anything underneath it, so I'm confused what it is, and how to replace it.

Front passenger side. See pic. What is this?

Thanks for help!

If it's all the way forward over the front passenger side it's most likely the sat prep cable stowage and that's a dummy vent cover.

OK so I just need any cap that will fit that hole, basically, since I'm not planning on satellite any time soon. Thanks!

Remove it completely and either install a new vent with stanchion or maybe just some eternabond will do the job. I haven't pulled mine so not sure of the cable roof penetration.
