How to Fix an RV Roof Leak - Part 2

Well, our RV roof leak saga continues lol.  Upon further investigation, Chad found what he thinks is the main culprit for the roof leak in the front of the RV.  It was the bathroom vent pipe pictured here...



He took the lid off and noticed that the pipe fit loosely in the hole.  So, he sealed it up good with white silicone. 

Today we had a nice rainy wintry mix.  So, we had a good opportunity to see how the fix worked.  Well, there was no water in the cabinets.  So, that is an improvement.  But, there is still a drip on the right side above the area where we keep our shoes.  So, we are well on our way to getting the problem completely fixed.

  1. That's a very pointed and efficient save. And white silicone really seems to patch up that leak well. However, this problem may point to a lingering, if not larger flaw in the structure of the roof itself, so you may want to check that out in the future.

    1. Good point. We have also added a roof coating (http://ourrvlife.blogspot.com/2014/12/fixing-rv-roof-leak-part-1.html) and replaced the air conditioner seal which seems to have taken care of the problems now. (We will post more details on that soon.)

  2. RV needs watch over rooftop it can't be overlooked at any expense. Liquid EPDM Rubber has made it simple and reasonable to do it. It really minds in each season.
