We just bought an old Triple-E Empress as an introduction to RVing to
see if we enjoy it. Unfortunately, with all the rain we've been having
up here, I've discovered that we have a leak in the bedroom. One of the
products I've heard great things about is this eternabond tape, so I
went out and bought a couple of rolls.
Now the old girl is currently in the shop getting a trailer hitch
fabricated (old one was rotted), I asked if they could send someone up
to have a look. Well, I got a call last night that there is a
significant problem... appears that the previous owner, or whoever last
worked on it, went crazy on the roof with silicone. Of course...
eternabond will not stick to silicone. Awesome.
I told the guy to leave it for now and we'll just worry about getting
the hitch done and I'll have a look at the roof myself. I really don't
feel like paying someone something like $85/hour to be up there scraping
Does anyone here have any experience with the eternabond? In addition,
I've heard that Bestine could do a pretty good job of at least thinning
the silicone and/or make it tacky enough for stuff to stick to it. Any
ideas on this?
I haven't been up top myself, but I'd find it hard to believe that my
4-inch wide tape wouldn't be beyond the width of the silicone used along
the seams, but, at the same time, I just don't know who has been up
there previously and what their experience is.
