Agreed with Sam. The end caps need to be inspected along all seams. That includes from the roof all the way down the sides. One area especially prone to leaking is where the end caps meet the roof corner rounds.

A/C and bathroom vent not too far away, I found when I replaced the vent for bathroom there was one leaking screw, had rust and wood was damp, caulk applied over screws around perimeter of vent looked good but allowed water to penetrate. For back corner closet leaks, end cap is best bet at the turn from roof to side.

Only 3 of the 6 screws that held the box down were not rusted 2 were really thin , I expect that is where a leak was. I also removed all of the Eturnabond, that tape held water under it. I am so glad I removed it and applied Dicor to the seams and screw heads. That tape seams to stick to painted aluminum and smooth fiberglass really good but not the pebbly texture of the fiberglass roof

Wow and the Eturnabond company is refunding all my money I spent on two rolls that I removed from the roof.

What did you do? Just contact them and tell them you were disappointed with their product? Dicor offers a product to clean fiberglas roofs and an Elastomeric sealer if you are happy with their products.

Yes, I called the makers of Eturnabond and they ask me a bunch of questions and decided I installed the tape correctly and want the old that I peeled off. I am glad I removed that stuff there was alot of moister under the tape that was corroding the rivets. They are giving me a full refund excpt for the roller and shipping.

Just a word of caution. Moisture under the tape means you still have water soaked wood that needs to dry out. The tape will not only keep water from getting in, but also keep moisture from getting out. When I repaired the walls on my LY it took weeks for all the moisture in the remaining walls to evaporate before I could seal everything.

I suspect a leak around the A/C unit. It's covered with a tarp now, so I can't really see, but I'm wondering if the unit is self contained, with only tubing penetrating the
roof area? Any comments about leaks in that area?
Thanks, Reginald

There would be a square cutout and a seal between the top unit and the roof.

Like Landyacht said there is a big square hole and on mine you can look thru the filter hole and see if it has been leaking.
