Default Rv elastomeric rubber roof coating

LoAfter a good scrub w broom and soapy water let roof dry and then 2 solid coats shes like new again.
Needs to dry a few days in shop bc it is water based. I like to do every couple yrs to seal up pinholes that may develop plus the ac runs cooler w the radiant reflection of the roof

Also a trick I learned when I worked as a painter back in the day save the plastic roller wrap if ur gonna reuse the roller soon so u dont have to rinse between use

Interesting! I have fixed a couple leaks in our motorhome after we bought it years ago. Hadn't thought about something like this.

What do you figure is your actual coverage rate? Product says 100 sf per gallon, do you get that much? When you pour it out, how easily does it flow? Too well that you have worry about it running off the sides? No issues with a rubber roof system?

You need to make sure that you do not have a EPDM roof first. If you do you will need to use a different product that is made especially for that. The elasto won’t work for epdm roofs.

It's a 2002 Class C motorhome. Not sure what I have up there other than I do know it's a rubber sheet of some sort. I'll look into it further. Thanks for the info!

How do you find out what type of roof you have? I know nothing, just I have an rv and I stay in it...sometimes.

Lol, just trying to help a brother out. My 37ft motorhome was epdm so I couldn’t use the cheaper elasto coating. I shopped long and hard and found a place through amazon that sold the Henry’s rubber roof coating for epdm way cheaper than anyone else. Once, you get it cleaned and revolted it looks like new. If yours is in the sun very much you will need to re-coat every two years.

i got one coat per gallon, and my trailer is 26ft living space, so I would say it gets more than 100sf per gallon,, more like 200. It goes on easy and is kinda like pudding. Wont really run unless you gob it super thick.

super happy with the results

Anyone else try this product? I just bought a new to me camper. It's not leaking yet, but I thought I would coat it any way.

I got a FEMA trailer, 32' Monoco something or nother. Its kinda rough and had quit a few leaks, mainly over door, corners and around edges. It was bad enough in a couple places that you could see the wood where the rubber membrane had deteriorated off. Got trailer about 2 yrs ago for FREE, cant beat that price. But I just used white Flex Seal in the quart size can. I tried rolling, then brushing it on and dabbing it around but would get to thin of a coat or i would notice little pin holes. I ended up using a plastic putty scrapper like you would you for sheet rock repair. Dump Flex Seal out of can and spread it with scrapper like icing a cake. You can make it as thin or thick as you want. I havent had a leak since. Has worked well for me.

Not yet, but it's something that I've considered for a long time. Epdm really makes a difference in terms of durability.

Just remember if ya got any cauckin /patches that ya used Silicone /RTV on roof ..Roof sealants wont stick to Silicone...Basically only Silicone will stick to Silicone...Thats RVrs general Rule along with never use Silicone on RV ROOF...ifa got any patchs to do look into ETERNABOND tape its good stuff

I have used Several EPDM roof sealants had good luck too...Mainly get roof prepp and dry and clean...In hot sun is not too good when applying it wants to dry too fast and ya get Snow blinded

Do you think you could put this on a metal deer stand roof to make it cooler and help with any pinhole leaks?
