For many years I used Dicor liquid white rubber roof coating on my TT with great results. I did this at least once a year after proper cleaning of roof before hand and also covered any exposed flanges or attachment points. Never any leaks at all including hard rain in Oregon and Texas.

Easy to apply with both long handle paint roller and/or long handle sponge mop. I used both. Relative mess free and easy to clean up if done quickly. Can later locate flanges and attachments points with prior photos and by feel if necessary. It was fun for me. This method has worked well for me and many others but there will always be

I never heard of Heng's during my prior years of RVing or ever heard others mention it on other forums. Maybe a new product as I no longer have a TT. I assume it is as easy to apply as Dicor???

Heng's has been around for over 25 years. Heng's is easier to apply. No activator ($$$) required. Just scrub the roof using Dawn (or similar) liquid dish soap, let dry, then apply. It has the consistency of paint. Rolls and brushes on very evenly.

Here are some photos of my Hengs treatment last year. First three are in progress including the black rubber showing through. The last two are finished product. The sun was shining and thus the blue haze on the photos. Note the paint roller and handle. It came out great.

Those are great photos Larry and my TT looked the same after my Dicor application several times over many years. I would try Hengs but no longer have the trailer.
