About 3 weeks ago, we bought our first TT, a 2007 Terry Resort 240RKS. The roof is in good condition, but all the dicor caulking needs some attention as well as the skylight replaced.
Whoever put the old skylight in, torqued the screws to hard.
As most of you know, dicor removal sucks! But here we go!
It took me about 3-4 evenings to finish the removal of dicor and the old butyl tape. I did find a small amount of water damage, but nothing that needed replaced. The wood was already dry when I uncovered stuff.
After I removed all the caulk and old tape, I cleaned the area with acetone, put down a new layer of butyl tape on the underside of the skylight, then covered the opening. I only screwed the screws in with the gun about 3/4 the way in, and then hand tightened the rest of the way to avoid over torquing them.
And now, waiting 24 hours for the butyl tape to dry.
Ill lay down a new layer of dicor caulk, then eternabond over the top of that.

The roof appears to be in good condition for the age. The skylight lap sealant was just ugly and has obviously been goobered up by the previous owner or incompetent RV tech's. Curious why you will use lap sealant if you are going to go the Eternabond tape route? Seems like you would get a better seal without it.
