Roof damaged from branch

Washing the camper today, started with the roof. Found a gouge in the membrane that runs nearly the entire length of the camper. Width of pencil. Looks like a single branch (stick) was dragged down the camper.

Membrane doesnt seem to be cut through. No leaks noted and we've had a LOT of rain of late. I figure I can run a strip of eternabond tape on top of it to ensure it stays sealed.

Will get a pic.

Thoughts?

Yup, I'd go with the Eternabond tape. Can't be too careful.

I'm wondering if I should take it to the dealer for a roof inspection. Let them see the damage before I cover it. Might make a difference later if i have a roof issue?

I think I'd skip the dealer, I think you would just be giving them a good excuse ahead of time to deny any claim.

Hey Kevin,I had a situation where the end of a branch which was snapped off in a storm and hidden by some leaves cut my roof membrane for about 12' and 1/2" wide. I called a mobile repair service and they patched it with a 4" wide roll of actual roof material with an adhesive backing. They then caulked the edges of the tape and we have not had any problems since the repair. I think your idea of the tape application should be all you need. Best wishes with your repair! Bruce

That has got to be gut wrenching to see something like that.
I think your idea of the Eternabond tape will take care of it.
Good luck with the repair.
