Mini-Light roof weight capacity

Iím a new owner of a 2010 Rockwood Mini-Lite 1809s. I have already received great guidance from this site and Iím sure will be referring to it often in the future. The previous owner did not maintain the roof properly, as the sealant is beginning to crack, and unfortunately, there are small areas of delamination on the front bottom left, and on the back upper left. Questions
1. I am adding eternabond to seams and vents this weekend. I plan to do as much as possible from a ladder, but can the camper roof support my 200 pounds?
2. I really thought I did a good inspection but missed the delamination; itís confined to about 2 square feet in both areas. Thereís absolutely no signs of soft wood in the interior; floor or ceiling. When I tap on the exterior it seems solid, even under the delamination. How concerned should I be about this?

Thank you

We have had two Mini Lites (2015 2504S, and a 2018 2504S). I would go up on the roof of both of them for routine maintenance, things of that nature. I am about 210lbs, never had any issues. Never felt anything that made me feel I was too much for the roof. We did the Eternabond up there as well. No issue. Just be careful with shoes (I would wear my Crocs up there), or you can wear just socks. If you want to help spread out the load, you could kneel on a plywood board or something like that. But I think that is more than you need to do. Just take your shoes off and you'll be fine

Swimming or water shoes work well on the roof even while it's wet.
