Eternabond as prevention

Hi all,

Has anyone used Eternabond to tape up all their lap sealant seams on the roof as preventative maintenance? I was looking at doing a RV Armor lifetime roof but the cost is pretty steep. Eternabond says their roof sealant tape should stand up to UV rays for 19 years. I would be interested in your opinions about doing this and if you have already done it how you think it is working out. I can not get on the roof period due to physical limitations. Same for DW.

I've been using Eternabond on the seams for quite a long time now. There's nothing better (within price range). Always carry a roll for emergency repair.

Its good stuff. Pretty much eliminates resealing roof joints. Get the widest you can afford. (More is better, right?) On the front cap to roof seam I caulk the leading edge of the tape but that's probably overkill because it is incredibly sticky.

Some of the best advice I ever got on this forum is to have an emergency kit with eternabond.

Anyone know what the shelf life is? I've had a roll for three years in my toolbox.
