After some cleaning, it should be easy just to tape over the holes to seal them.
There seams to be no damage under where it sat.

After cleaning and taping, I need to let the caulking dry, and give the roof a good cleaning.

I had some time After work and it was around 75 out. Figured I would solve this problem. Its the vent for my gray water tank. Just going to reseal it, and call it good.

Is that just aluminum roof over top of hard board insulation?


If you want to do something, you will find a way.
If you don't, you will find an excuse.

Thereseem to be something around 1.5 in wide at about a two foot spacing all down the roof. The center has some sort of support running the whole length of the coach. I have not pulled down any of the roof on the inside yet as it seems to bee in good shape. BUTT we all know about ""It seems to be in good shape"". I will have to pull down some roof in the back part area of the coach sometime to repair some damage there. I may then be come a welder instead of a general fixer upper. lol
It is a aluminum sheet over something strong. I have set down boards to walk on, and the roof has not fallen in yet. I weigh around 190 to 195.

Does any body have any pictures of a 1986 or 87 Holiday rambler being built??

The next Project is to remove the old lid and re tape the seams, and apply new sealant.
