    I'd like to do the same.:Rofl1:

    Eternabond Tape is the business plus the EPDM Rubber roof cote.

    Look for an 'elastomeric' paint. Here, we can buy the stuff at a hardware/DIY store; It's made for the roofs of mobile homes (something like a cross between a static caravan and a house).

    Please excuse me for inexperience on here

    I use to be and still am a member of the classic winniebago site. But as i am getting rid of the rig and have the sportscoach i dont think i be on it that much. The only thing i will use it for is all the stuff on American RV engines as they have a wealth of info on them up to 1986 i think.

    They even have a map for members to put where they are in the world so everyone know where a certain member is. Now that is cool

    Sorry. im waffeling on on the wrong thread.

    :Cool: You may find that if your Aircon has an internal cover that if you remove it. You can tighten the 4 bolts that tension the springs holding the Aircon in postion. That it may solve your leak problem. :Wink:


    PS. Forgot to mention. The gasket that seals the Aircon to the roof does shrink over time. Hence the need to re-tension the spring bolts.

    I'm sure I've seen gasket/seal kits for these.

    Do you know if they are available for this one John?

    I suppose EPDM Sealant will sort it otherwise, if tightening it does not work.
