Place the pan in place, place 4" wide strip of FRP over lip of pan and up wall 3" mounted so that it is removable then permanent install FRP over rest of wall overlapping the 4" strip below. That will shed any water. If there is a concern about water possible getting behind the FRP waterproof the wall first, then install the pan and FRP over the waterproofed wall.

To remove the pan first remove the 4" wide strip of FRP and that will free the pan for removal.




Thanks.

I found out that the insulation I used, and Plasti Dip do not mix....

These were just 2 test pieces, and both of them had 1 light coat applied, and then a heavier second coat over top of that after it dried some.

Yeah, not a good solution.

We finally had a nice day of weather, while I was free, so I pulled back the extra TPO to get to the end of the roof plywood.

If you look close you can see 3 different layers of roofing plywood, all 1/4" thick. (actual is about .200 each). They are not fully flush, and that is what I needed to fix.

First step is to cut a block so I can use that to hold the router base against, so I can keep the end of the roof parallel with the back wall.

The instant I finished cutting the block to length, I said to myself, that's wrong.

I need 6 1/2" from the back wall to the router bit, not 6 1/2" to the end of the block, plus the the router base. Duh... Lol.

So, I measured from the router bit, and put my 6 1/2" mark on the block, and re-cut the block, just a little shorter.

Next came the juggling act of trying to hold the block against the back wall, while holding the router against the block, all while cutting the plywood.

After a false start, things went well. The rear overhang now extends the same distance the whole way across the back.

Next, I'll need to round off the top side, and start gluing the TPO into place.

No need to go overboard there. Run a little 120 grit paper down the cut, put a piece of guerilla tape around the edge then glue the TPO down. Works great, and yes, I have done it myself so I know it works. My RV tech buddy, who literally grew up in the business gave me the tip.
