what have you guys used with success in the past. im thinking about the roof cement they sell at home depot. its a polyurethane that never completely hardens.


I also have some stuff called np1 that pour bricklayers at work use to seal cracks in expansion joints. anybody have a better solution?

What kind of roof? Metal or rubber? You can get specific RV roof sealers (rubber roof) in a caulk that self level for seams etc.

It's an aluminum roof. It looks like there was some kind of rubberized roof seal on there but it cracked and water has started to pull through.

I have tried and found all those magic in a can wont work very well. They either turn black from dirt and streak your trailer or after a year it starts to crack and water enters into the trailer. Check this posting as I have gone into a good detail. But the final choice is yours.

Thanks. I thought about using the aluminum tape that hvac guys use. It's extremely strong but the thing is I'm not sure the adhesive will hold up to the sun beating down on it. I have two different types of urethane caulks I might try. I think what's happening is the trailer flexes just enough for the caulk to break the seal and boom. Leak.

We usually use a self leveling roof sealant, common on most trailers. Should be available from about any race trailer dealer.
