Tiny slide roof repair

I noticed the other day that my slide roof has a tiny nick in the membrane right on the edge/crease. It’s only about 1/4-1/2” or so and otherwise intact. I did an inspection and can’t see anything sharp that might have caused it. Might be self-inflicted from me clearing leaves or might have just always been like that and I never noticed. Any ideas to patch it up? Considering some eternabond or a spot of decor. Not sure what would hold up best with the slide movement. Ultimately we’ll be upgrading to a slide topper anyways, but want to keep it water tight!

RE: New trailer, new challenges

Hello all, OP here again! Long story short, we had an unexpected opportunity to upgrade our truck and trailer to get a new-to-us 5th wheel. It’s a perfect rig for us (never again with the no-slide trailer). So after this whole process with the last trailer, I opened the fuse panel on the new one and found the WFCO setup once again. This time with a separate deck mounted 55a converter. Converter doesn’t seem to pretend that it will charge at higher than 13.6v (no boost mode claimed anywhere). It seemed easy enough, so I plopped in the Go Power 35a converter that has been working well with the last trailer. Took about 20 minutes total and was charging right off the bat at 14.3v. Using 2 - 6v golf cart batteries, now a 2000 watt generator (wish I had done that upgrade first and got a higher amp converter). Question: Is the Go Power charging faster with 35a and 14.3+v, or would the WFCO be better on account of 55a despite the 13.6v charging? I already had the Go Power so I just put it in before I got to wondering this.

RE: Adding a circuit to distribution panel

I’ll probably use #12 or 14 (or better depending on what I have on hand). I’m assuming I shouldn’t need an inline fuse if I’m wiring back to a fused circuit. I’m talking about just 12v system here - I want to be able to use the outlets for dry camping when we don’t have hookups.

Adding a circuit to distribution panel

Well shortly after getting this all sorted in our last travel trailer, we just upgraded to a new to us Keystone Sprinter Campfire 5th wheel. While it’s pretty close to perfect for our needs, it unfortunately did not come with a single 12v or USB outlet! There is a nice shelf under the TV which happens to be right above the fuse box with pretty easy routing through the cabinet. My plan is to make this shelf a “charging center” for topping up our devices while camping. Correct me if I’m wrong but it looks fairly simple - hot goes to the empty space on the fuse panel and ground to the ground block. I’m planning on 2-3 USB outlets (3a) with one of which also having the built in voltmeter since I don’t have one on this rig. Would a 15a fuse be sufficient? Any other considerations or ideas while I’m in there?
