I thought I knew how I was going to do this but now I'm rethinking it.[emoticon] There won't be any standing water and it doesn't get very wet there......

Thanks,
Rick

That’s why I’d just paint it.

What kind of paint would you use? This is more like a membrane type material than paint.

Thanks,

How about a rubberized undercoating spray paint. We have a version of this on our TC. It was recommended by our TC manufacturer for the underbelly and rear overhang for touchups.

I don’t think it really matters since it will almost never be seen, but plastidip would be a good choice if you wanted more of a membrane type look.

Eternabond. Clean it well as per instructions. Use a roller to really squish it down. Forget it ever happened. And unlike your install, get this right as the Eternabond is so named for a reason.... [emoticon]

For membrane - like finish, use polyurethane caulk. It will dry to rubber-like compound
But application can be messy.

Bought some Plastidip yesterday and will give that a shot first.

Thanks,
