May or may not be clear but hopefully it means this part of your project is on track. I'm beginning to think this is not really a project with an end anticipated but rather a blog to display carpentry skills.

Definitely a project with an anticipated end. I hope to be back on track with actual progress.

I want to glue the Tpo roofing at the back next, hopefully today. That assumes the glue I originally bought is still good.


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

If you had done the entire roof project all at the same time instead of screwing around with the other silly stuff the glue would certainly have been good.

I hope for your sake it's still good.

How many years ago do you start the roof anyway, I forget now. Obviously somewhere between 1 and 5+ years.

Bruce, Bruce, Bruce. You went off your meds again and added that extra shot of caffeine, didn't you? Lol.

I'm just messing with you. It's all good.

It was about a year and a half ago.

I finally got to pull the Tpo back at the rear of the moho. The last inch or so on top needed to be glued, then pulled down and around the back edge, then underneath to meet up with the back wall.

The weather was both a blessing and a curse. It was hot. Hotter than I like working in. That being said, once I flipped the roofing back, the sun heated it and made it much more flexible, to be able to bend it over the edge. That was a plus.

I pulled out the can of glue for the roof and pulled the lid off.

I looked inside, and you know what I saw? You guessed it. It was fine! Some of you didn't see that coming. Lol.

It actually looked like this.

The good news is, that is what it is supposed to look like. It's what the unopened can looked like when I originally got it.

After stirring the paint a little bit with my drill, the glue started looking like this, which is normal. Wahoo.

Here is the Tpo after gluing the top, the rear edge, and also gluing it to the bottom of the roof.

Now, that little overhang slopes downward away from the rv. Any water that runs off the rear of the roof, will not drip down the rear wall, which is a plus.

I need to trim the Tpo coming down the wall, but I think I want a more permanent wall covering at the top before I glue that into place, as I want the Tpo over top of the wall covering.

About to get the tremors... I need a fix.

Personally, I enjoy you sharing your skill and information with us. Knowledge is good and wisdom is better.

Have you thought about adding gutter extensions, to shoot the water away from the RV completely? Now would be the time to look at how you install them.
