Do It Yourself RV: RV roof maintenance

From the bloggers at Do It Yourself RV.

As an RV owner one of the many items on your list of annual maintenance should be roof related cleaning and care. RVs come factory standard with either aluminum, fiberglass, thermoplastic olefin (TPO) rubber, or ethylene propylene diene monomer (EPDM) rubber.

While fiberglass and aluminum roofs are particularly low maintenance, they increase the cost of your RV, and add a significant amount of weight to your vehicle. This leaves EPDM roofs the most standard in the industry, particularly with small and lighter weight RVs. RV roof maintenance starts with identifying what kind of material is on your roof.

Here are the steps to caring for the roof of your RV.

1. Inspect the Roof – Look for weak seams, cuts in the RV roof, and degrading sealants to repair.

2. Preparation is Key – Make sure your RV roof is clear of debris, dust and that is dry before beginning work on it.
