Our 1985 Eldorado leaks in one spot and from climbing on a ladder it looks to me like the strip that connects the side with the roof, in a sort of curved configuration,needs to be sealed or replaced. I searched the net and find some suggest Eternabond. It will entail finding a repair shop. Looking for advice. Maybe we should do all the seams on the roof. I wonder what this might cost. And a dealer or an rv repair shop or some other type of place, who should I check? Thanks.
Two years ago I cleaned off the old sealant down to bare aluminum on all of the seams on my roof and put down DiSeal tape. The DiSeal is super-sticky and still looks brand new. Camping World has it on sale now for $60 for a 50 ft. roll. It took 1 1/2 rolls to do my roof. It involved some elbow grease but otherwise it was a pretty simple do-it-yourself job. A hair dryer along with some heavy-bodied adhesive remover really helped get the old stuff off. It might get expensive if you take it to a dealer, maybe you can find a tech looking for some side jobs to do it for you.

Thank you Norway. I was thinking of asking around here if anyone knows someone knowlegeable that could do it. The description you gave helps though. I'll keep the name of the stuff and see who has it in our area. No where near Camping World. But let's see what ai find.
Have you considered the rubber roofing roll on stuff?
4 whopping cylinders on Toyota RV's. Talk about great getting good MPG. Also I have a very light foot on the pedal. I followed some MPG advice on Livingpress.com and I now get 22 MPG! Not bad for a home on wheels.
Never heard of that. You can roll it onto a fiberglas roof? Do you know anyone who has done that? Interesting. What about the things on the roof. You must have to measure and cut to get it to fit right. I'll check into it. Thanks.
