Sloppy Caulking on 289QB Roof

I was up on the roof inspecting a cracked shower cover when I noticed how sloppy the caulking is everywhere up there. Is that normal?

That is a self leveling caulk. Looks a little sloppy but not too much out of norm.

Looks just like you'd expect from some one that doesn't give a sh## about what kind of work they do as long as the line keeps moving out the factory doors.

Is yours a 2017...ours is the same. Had a screw pop on the roof already that required repair and the same shower skylight was put on crooked and a screw popped on that also. Had to run a heavier screw in and recaulk.

As far as normal goes...ours is very similar. Also take a look at the rear wall seal on the roof and see how they only hit the screw heads and not the whole seam.

Looks normal, but if I am seeing correctly,you have a large crack on the edge that was kinda covered . If so it is caused but to much torque on their screw guns. May need to get that addressed.

To tott9713, Just a friendly suggestion, our 2017 250rb front and rear roof seems were like yours so I put some 4" Eternabond tape across the seam and screw heads front and rear for added protection. You can get the tape in tan color from Amazon, I also ordered a 2" rubber roller to help secure the tape also. It worked out really well.

I agree. The Eternabond is a permanent fix, or preventive method for all seams. Make sure you clean the roof material before applying. I used the Eternabond cleaner. That will insure a good bond.

Yea Ive been tossing around the eternabond idea recently as our trailer is new also so itd be good to get ahead of the seals. I have a roll of white from our old trailer just debating whether Im ok with that or want to spend money on a new roll to have a tan color.

If you can't see it from the road, go with the white.

2x

A couple weeks of weathering and it won't be white for long.
