Angry rubber roof

before I got the camper I went over it pretty good but found out later I didnt do a good job on it. the camper is 2001 Hy-Line. in the shower stall found out the roof leaked when I found a ladder to get on the roof I found black chaulking all over the one corner
(yes found out asphalt) so my question is what can I do with it with out replacing the whole roof at this time. yes I did try to get it off but not happening. I did seal everthing with the dicor so it doesnt leak, yes I have been screwed but nothing I can do about it now. I took the people that owned it word for it
(thats another story has to do with a kid & hospital)
I just need help on what to do with it for right now
thanks for any help

Well if it won't come off I would get some good rubber sealant and seal right over top of the old stuff, even if it means two coats..

I don't see as you have any other choice..

I did get a gal of liquid rubber roof. I talked to a couple of RV dealers some say I dont have nothing to worry about. and some say it will eat the rubber a way. I am new to this as far as a rubber roof thing. the rest of the camper is outstanding

erby. they say don't put anything on the rubber roof that has petroleum in them. that includes cleaners. i know this comes a little late.
you might be ok with putting the dicor on. check the label on the liquid roof see if it has any petro in it. i think the petroleum drys out the rubber and it might crack.
good luck.

I was going to say the same thing. Dicor is you best friend. Make sure it all clean.

You must use Liquid Rubber Roof Coatings by EPDMCoatings for the successfully sealing any leaky roof. Thanks
