The best way to fix an RV roof leak is to STOP it before it happens.
Outside water leaking into an RV is a serious issue.
Many times, there is significant damage already done by the time leaks are discovered.
Regular exterior RV roof inspections are the best way to discover and prevent leaks.
Water leaks may not be apparent from the inside of your RV.
An exterior RV roof inspection should be done on a regular basis.
If you want to schedule a professional RV roof inspection with

If you see a water leak in your RV’s rubber roof don’t make the mistake of trying to repair it yourself by using a silicone sealer.
In our RV Service department the most frequent issue we see with incorrect caulk, is the application of silicone seal.
Why not use silicone?
Over time silicone tends to shrink and pull away, once it has pulled away, water can go right under the silicone and get trapped. Water trapped underneath the silicone can never dry out.
Removing silicone seal without doing additional damage to the roofing material is nearly impossible.
As a general rule the caulking that should be used for an RV roof is not available in a big box or hardware store.
If you are going to repair a leak yourself we recommend the RV caulking be purchased from a qualified RV supply store to ensure you get the correct product for your RV.
