Patching rivet holes on the roof
Good Afternoon, I have a question about fixing rivet holes in the roof. Iím in the process of cleaning all the caulking off the roof of our 2017 26u so I can reseal it with 3M 4412 tape. The previous owner had his Airstream dealer install Zamp flexible solar panels but because theyíre cracking I decided to pull them off while I was doing the reseal job. Well they used six pop rivets plus maybe a tube of caulking for each panel, what a mess! I plan on adding four 100 watt hard panels in the future so hereís my question? Should I drill out the old rivets (I ground the head off to get the panels off) and put new larger rivets in and put the 3M tape over it or just put the tape over the holes as they are and try to use them with the new solar panel brackets? I still canít believe an Airstream dealer would something so stupid. Thanks in advance, this forum is loaded with so much wisdom.
