I used to have a 1994 AS LY motorhome (diesel pusher) that suffered with roof leaks. I used Eternabond to seal the roof seams (and it did a good job of stopping the leaks). However, I'm not so sure that just using a hair dryer would allow the tape to be released. It chemically welds the tape to the roof. On the motorhome, the roof was fiberglass - the same type as is used on sailboat decks - the walls were fiberglass laminate and the quarter round where the roof and the walls met was aluminum. The Eternabond welded itself to the aluminum and could never be pried up.

Do you see any drawbacks to using eterabond on the ZipDee awning attachment to the AS? They have a alumibond product as well - any experience with this? Thanks for your time.

Can you describe more of what you mean? If you are meaning the upper and lower mounting brackets, I would suggest removing the brackets one at a time, clean the back surface of the bracket and the skin of the trailer, apply a layer of ParBond http://www.vintagetrailersupply.com/...-p/VTS-256.htm then reattach the bracket to the trailer. I can't imagine a good way of using the Alumibond to seal those brackets. However, I could see using the narrower Alumibond tape to seal the upper edge of the awning attachment strip on the trailer. And, I used the Alumibond to seal the seams on top of our Avion, and around the air and plumbing vents. http://www.airforums.com/photos/brow...c=3530&userid=

i don't think i would use it on the zipdee drip rail if that is what your talking about I think I would clean out old and replace with original caulking

Lay it so it covers the seam that contacts the roof, and make it cover the vertical edge of the vent as well. You can trim the ends of each strip to allow you wrap the tape around each corner of the vertical edges of the vent. I found that a pair of tin snips trimmed the Eternabond tape nicely.

Blessed and highly favored
I have noticed that a few have suggested the aluminum tape (Eternabond). On their web page they also offer a non aluminum tape as well. Being that the roof area on my 2011 is some sort of plastic material will the aluminum tape still be the better choice?

Here is a pic of mine with eternabond tape. It's the bomb and I don't know why more people don't use it.
