How to repair an RV roof on the cheap

We’ve mentioned our love for EternaBond repair tape for years at Leaks in your RV’s roof are a major headache, and RVers have tried (and continue to try) just about anything to stop them. Pour on some sealant, stick on some duct tape; we’ve seen folks who’ve even tried using old tire inner tubes. Forget all that!

Screen Shot 2016-04-07 at 8.37.58 PMAs we’ve often written, EternaBond can help you make a repair on just about any kind of RV roof material in a hurry. EternaBond is a micro sealant tape that installs simply. Clean up the area to be repaired, cut off the correct length of the tape, peel off the backing, press the tape down on the repair area and rub the dickens out of it. It works — and it lasts.

The problem is the darn stuff costs a lot. Most stores, online and off, will sell you a roll of EternaBond, 4 inches by 50 feet for a stiff $70 to $90. It tends to make one shy away from this fine product, and then leaves the same person grumbling when the feel of the drip, drip of a rain leak late at night.

We searched around, however, and found many sizes available at Amazon at a far lower price. You might want to pick up a roll . . . just in case.
