In my prior posting I discussed my plans to recoat my 5th wheel roof. Thanks for all your comments.

I have decided to use Henry's 887 tropi-cool. My plan now is to also use Henry's 885 to cover the seams combined with Eternabond tape.

My question is should I put down the tape 1st and then cover it with the 885 which I will then cover with 887 or put down the 885 and covered this with the with the tape which I then will cover with the 887. In other words should the tape be in the middle or directly on the roof covered by Henry's coating.

Please give me enough troubles, uncertainty, problems, obstacles and STRESS so that I do not become arrogant, proud, and smug in my own abilities, and enough blessings and good times that I realize that someone else is in charge of my life.

I always apply the E/bond before coating the roof. I don't know if it really matters, I just think it makes more sense.

I would tape first then coat.
That way the coating also seals the edges of the tape.


Home is where I park it.
