RE: Sealing my TC's EPDM Roof

The most common thickness in commercial is 60 mil, which is .060 in thick. It is also available in 45 mil and 90 mil. I'm not sure what thickness they use on an RV. mil mm inch 60 1.524 0.06 1/16 in

RE: Sealing my TC's EPDM Roof

... snipped ... Likely reason why you can't find the answer is because the question has never been asked. This makes perfect sense although YouTube has many "how-to" videos so I thought perhaps I am missing out on something important that everyone does and is something for me to consider doing. Confused as I became, I called the FraserwayRV Cookstown ON dealer (designated Adventurer TC dealer) where we bought our new-to-us 2007 TC unit in 2014 and here's what the Service Writer told me. The EPDM roof should last the lifetime of our TC if taken care of. Of course "lifetime" is subject to interpretation. He said the most important things are to keep it clean of organic debris, environmental sooting and heavy dirt, inspect it regularly and, stay on top of maintenance (like lap sealing around vents, re-caulking seams etc. as needed and performing spot repairs i.e. repairing rips, punctures etc. as discovered). I told him we have one small (1/2 sq. ft.) corner area where the top EDPM layer seems to have come loose from the underneath decking. There are no tears, holes or separation evident on the sides of this "looseness". He said not to worry as this is not unusual and likely due to less glue used in that specific spot. He added it was not uncommon for them to see larger rubber roof sections on RV's being loose because of a lack of glue and his advice is to leave it alone unless it is compromised and causing problems like a leak. For ours, he also advised if the rubber fabric was otherwise whole, undamaged and not deteriorating, to also leave the loose area alone. For all I know it could have been like this for years and I just noticed it recently. Thanks All for responding and I hope this additional information is also useful.

RE: Sealing my TC's EPDM Roof

Thanks for the link but not really the answer to the questiohn I'm asking. Let me try it a different way. I have a 15 year old roof that is in good shape. Once clenaup up(annually), it looks very good. I see no "black" spots bleeding through. I'd like to seal the roof with a good product designed to help protect it and hopefully, extend it's life. What are the better products out there, for this purpose, that people have used with success.

Sealing my TC's EPDM Roof

I tried searching for a thread using every combination of words I could think of with no real luck. I want to seal my EPDM roof with the best product based on people's experiences. I keep my 2007 TC's roof clean and it is in good shape for it's age but I feel it's time to put a protective coat on it. I've spent hours on YouTube reviewing clips spouting the merits of all of the usual suspects (Dicor 2-part system, Flex Seal, Henry Silicone RV roof sealant, others etc.) More confused now than ever. Any recommendations based on first hand experience/ or can you direct me to a thread where this has been already thoroughly covered. Thanks.

RV Campgrounds near Athens OH

We have a trip planned with our truck camper set-up next month and we'd like to find an RV campground near Athens Ohio as we have friends staying at the Ohio University Inn & Conference Center in Athens. Just 2 mature adults travelling ... no kids so not interested in a busy Yogi Bear type campground. We'll be touring the Windy 9 on our motorcycles all day so quiet at night, clean shower/restroom facilities and a bit of nature/privacy would be great. A pool would be an appreciated but not necessary bonus. Any suggestions?

RE: Recommendations for replacing my Michelin LTX M&S tires

It's not a typo, they forgot to mention kgs, 1550 kgs = 3415 lbs. https://dcadprod.azureedge.net/b2b-experience-production/attachments/cl16ju0hv0buv01kvmu9taxm5-agilis-crossclimate-b2b-product-sheet-e.pdf DOH ... as a Canuk I should have figured this out. Thanks. I am curious that not one of the tire shops I spoke to mentioned the Cross Climate. I wonder why as they look like a great 3 season tire which is basically what I need.

RE: Recommendations for replacing my Michelin LTX M&S tires

... snipped ... We've run on BFG AT tires for years. We carry a 3200 lbs Truck Camper, and often towed a 3200 lbs cargo/bike trailer. We run LT285-70-R17E ... 75 lbs in rear, 70 lbs in front when loaded and hauling. These too have been recommended. Are you happy with these tires? What's the impact of the more aggressive AT tread?

RE: Recommendations for replacing my Michelin LTX M&S tires

snipped ... I recently bought some Toyo tires because I stepped up to 18" wheels and Michelin didn't make them in the size I wanted. Thanks for your input. The Toyo HT II tires have been recommended. Which Toyo tires did you buy? And are you happy with them?

RE: Recommendations for replacing my Michelin LTX M&S tires

Michelin Agilis Cross Climate These caught my eye previously until I researched on Michelin's .ca website that they are only rated at 1550 lbs @ 80 psi. Can't figure that out for a LT tire in my size unless it is an error.

Recommendations for replacing my Michelin LTX M&S tires

It's time to replace my 9 year old LT265/75R16 Michelin LTX - M&S tires. These have served me well for 9 years and I could easily replace them with a new set of LT Defenders and be done with it. However, I know new tires, designs and compounds come out every year and before I commit to another tire, I am interested in other brands and models to research. I am not willing to jump into a 19.5" set-up, nor do I want an A/T or mud tires. I am happy with a HT (highway tire) in the OEM size listed above. I also do not want a "budget/good enough" tire. My TC set-up is heavy and I also pull a 3,500 lb. enclosed cargo trailer behind me. Safety is an important consideration for me. On price, I don't mind spending good money if the corresponding value and quality is there. My current Michelins have served me very well. I just wish I could have gotten more use out of them before they aged out. One concern I do have with the Defenders which replace the LTX's is that I'm reading they can get soft and squishy in the summer and road heat. We run the new P-metric Defenders on our 2011 RAV4 I've never experience any jelly like ride performance feeling with the RAV. Nobody is interested in a tire flame fest here. What I am looking for are some informed opinions and recommendations based on your own, first hand experiences. Thanks in advance folks.

RE: Tires

Timely thread. My Michelin LTX M&S LT265/75R16 tires (predecessor to the Defender line which has now officially replaced them were made in DOT 1813) -- 9 years ago and they were mounted within weeks of being made. The truck has always been parked outside in mostly a shaded spot (say 60% of the time). These tires have travelled less than 80,000km (50,000 mi.) and have lots of tread remaining 10mm - 1/4" with even wear as I rotate them regularly and balance if needed. Up until last Autumn 2021, there were no visible signs of checking (sidewall, tread, anywhere etc.) This Spring it's all come out ... the checking that is. There is a visible ring around the middle, outside of every tire, spider webbing cracks between this ring and the block edges and cracks developing in the outer tread channels. If I was just driving around town or regularly light loaded like I've been the past 2 years, I might be inclined to leave them on until Fall. Since we are planning some major camping outings this year (finally), there are being replaced shortly. I believe a big part of the cracking becoming prominent is the fact I've only put a few thousand miles on this truck the past 2+ years. I have no closely held rules regarding replacing worn or aged tires on any of my vehicles including our motorcycles other than I do so when it it time (wear, damage or visible deterioration). Regular inspections and common sense dictate my decision making. I will be posting up another thread on tires shortly --- this time for replacement recommendations.
