    On the side just below where the roof damage starts on the skylight end. That side looks wavy where it may just be the lighting.

    You may wish to have this looked at through a facility capable of vulcanizing on a section of TPO. Places such as RV Roof Install can do this but I believe the closest location is in TN or GA. There may be other places that can do this. Also have them look at what looks like de-lamination in that section.

    I just called my dealer when I get back Ill have them quote it. He said the roof part is a easy repair but he said more time is spent on pulling the old gutter off and cleaning and reinstalling a new section. Ill see what they say next week when I get back. In the mean time Ill just keep the duct tape on and apply new before I head home.

    I think you're referring to this thread, maybe?

    I have a small patch on the edge of my slide where the seal keeps wiping away at the eternabond. I'll try to use a small amount of Alpha sealant on the edges to keep it flat. I never use the rear camera to back in but have the DW at the back of the rig while using our phones or walkie talkies for communication. A Ladder nailed my slide so there is always a way to cause damage in spite of our best efforts.

    The camera IMO is only useful in passing or avoiding folks moving up the on ramp as I move back into the slow lane.

    I also carry an extendable tree trimmer in the rig to help those keep their sites clear when they advertise that much larger rigs will fit there.

    Rather than replace the roof, eternabond as mentioned, use self leveling sealer about 4 weeks after install to allow the tape to normalize, then roll with it. If that leaks or you decide to replace the roof, look at a silicone overlay vs TPO replacement. Might be a bit more expensive, but it will outlast the rest of the camper.

    When I ripped my roof on a limb I repaired it with Eternabond. and lots of sealant. 3 different spots about 4' in total. Never had another problem with it. When I traded it in the repair was not even mentioned.

    Dennis66 - my father in law was backing his fifth wheel into his driveway and forgot about the old basketball net. He ended up cutting his roof open, sounding much similar to your situation. He just used Eternabond tape, with lap sealant on the edges. The repair looks great and is holding up well.

    I'd use Eternabond. It should hold well. It will prevent an insurance claim or the high cost of replacing it on your own dime. The only drawback would possibly be reduced trade in value. But if you're planning on keeping it, that's nullified.

    I would try the Eternabond tape. Roll it on really well and maybe consider using some Dicor (Alpha brand) along the edges of the Eternabond tape. If that fails then consider a new roof. Good luck.
