Acetone. I did every inch of my roof earlier in the year... acetone was the easiest to clean with. All sticking well at this point.

x3 on acetone. Wear gloves.

Make sure that the outside temps are within spec before you put it down.

If PO used ANY silicone calk then make sure it's all gone before you use the acetone.

If you find it's not sticking well after you've applied pressure, then it's not clean enough. That stuff sticks and can not be pulled off once pressed down.

Looks just like mine. Good job. The only difference is I used gray tape for the last foot at each side of the end caps. I started with white, but didn't like the white tape contrasting against the gray corner rounds as it came down the sides. The top didn't matter since you can't see it.

Smile Roof Tape - Endura?

How much Acetone did you use to do the seams? I know its kinda asking how long is a piece of string, But wondered "ballpark" how much to buy. also, how many feet are in a roll of the tape? I need to do a 36' LY. Lastly, what is best to use on the rest of the roof/ if anything! Appreciate any help or advice. Thanks in advance.

I thank you again for the quick reply (and the insight!

PS: What, if anything, is best to cover/service the rest of the roof? Any coating etc.

Thanks again

I used a strong soap with a push broom to wash the roof first. I am going to use a rv cover after I'm sure all my leaks are fixed.
