rvrev2 Thank you for your advice. If I'd have heard of RVRoof.com a little earlier in this process that is probably what I would have done. I've found the lack of compatibility charts frustrating in the extreme. I keep thinking if metal working supplies were sold like this how would anyone ever know as simple a thing as if they need flux!

Finding this Good Sam forum was the highlight of this process. Thanks for helping out the FNG.

I was in an RV parts and sales place in AZ and was told silicone is a bad choice because it reacts with the rubber roof. I disagree.

Henries roof coat and patch available at homedepot and other retailers was developed for mobile rubber and metal roofs. You don't have to take my word for this. Henries website explains. The catalyst used is water so it will not react with the roofing material.

I use the patch (100 percent silicone) to patch. I impregnate fiberglass drywall seam tape with the silicone for holes I need to cover.

When dry I paint the entire roof with henery's 100 percent silicone roof paint(tropi-cool brand name) for UV protection from the sun. This stuff

caries a life time warranty and was made for the job.


1. Silicone WILL NOT adhere to TPO/EPDM RV rubber roofs. PERIOD
2. This is what Henries website states

s. This coating is not intended for
application over plywood, walking decks, uncoated SPF roofs, rubber or PVC sheet roofs, silicone coated roofs, shingles of any kind,
