Your right about UV I looked up Gluvit and the description said to paint it for UV protection.

Hey, just this evening I finished doing maintenance on my 6 year old roof. I bought the AS in Feb and it is evident that it sat outside. The caulk on the top was all cracked and nasty. Someone had also done maintenance before and went wild with a caulking gun. Some caulk was nearly 2 inches thick. I did some caulk work but noticed the roof play behind the vents on the inner side. I spoke with a tech at Camping World and he recommended Sika Multi-seal Plus White Membrane Tape
for as it is neat and will move. It was expensive but I carefully ran down the sides inside the rain gutters and around items on the roof. It looks much better than it did and much more uniform in appearance. I did not have leaks but was following the maintenance as I go through the whole rig checking everything.

Thumbs up UV after the fact.....

This goes on all the roof plastic/acrylic. Plus tires and just about anything exposed to "old sol".

So when is this..."old enough to know better" supposed to kick in?
