Follow this link for our customers testimonial
|We start out by removing
everything off the roof
|On this roof we used 1/4 inch
Ply to overlay to provide a solid
and smooth sub-structure to
glue the TPO.
|This is the completed roof.
We use Dicor roofing
systems on all our roofs
These photos below giude you thruogh our process of removing
and old EPDM rubber roof and installing a new Dicor TPO roof
Most motor homes and trailers come factory equipped with EPDM rubber roofing. They can
last up to about 15 to 20 years before they naturally beak down turn black. At this point in time
there is really only one correct way to deal with it. That is to remove and replaced it with with a
new one piece roofing Material this can be expensive but well worth it. It is required to keep
your roof from water intrusion before your investment is completely ruined water can soak in
through the pours of the old rubber damaging the wood below. As well as the siding and even
the flooring. I have personally seen hundreds of RV with leaky roofs. It is important to inspect
your sealant around all your vents and front and rear caps every year to make sure that there
are not any voids or cracks in the sealant.
Buyer beware there are a lot of scams going on right now with blanket coating, These liquid
coating are a big waist of money especially if your unit is 10 years or older. First off, applying a
product over a damaged product can not last. The sun will bake it right off. If your RV rubber
roof is newer and in great shape it might stick a bit longer, I have personally heard from
countless RV owners how they have spent 1000 to 1500 hundred dollars on these products
only to call us with roof leak issues, The only thing we can do to make it right is to remove the
old epdm material completely off the RV and roll out a new one piece of material. Then you will
be leak free fro 20 to 30 years . Please call for a free rubber roof replacement estimate

|RV Rubber Roof Replacements
|Hello folks my name is Jim Hargrove . I have been working on Rv's since 1985. I started at Camping World in El cajon CA. Then moved on to many local RV dealers Years
later I moved up to Oregon to work for Monaco in the early 90,s. Enough of the cold weather I settled back in San Diego. I worked for Beaudry RV in San Marcos for 10 year
just before the great recession swallowed them up I started RV Expert Mobile Service in 2006.
I work out of Santee CA. I service the San Diego area. I specialize in LP Appliances such as RV refrigerators, RV water heaters RV furnaces. I can replace roof top air I also
replace awning and awning fabrics. I have installed thousands of RV awnings dating back to 1985 working at camping world. I stock most vinyl awning fabrics in lengths
between 14 feet and 21 feet. In the color shades of blue, grey and brown. I can also get maroon, green or checker flag. I use Dometic awning material .Expect to get about
7 years or so out of your new RV awning canvas material.RV Expert mobile service can replace rubber roof material. I have installed hundreds of RV roofs. Also repaired
countless roofs due to rain leaking in through the rubber and elswere. We strip the roof, peeling off all the EPDM rubber roof material , vents and moldings. If there is wood
damage can repair that as well. Then we roll out a new one piece of Dicor roofing system. Install all new vents and seal it up. The manufactures offer a 12 years guarantee
in the material and 5 years on the my labor. Don't be fooled by paying a company less money for a roll on liquid rubber just have the sun dry it out in 1 or 2 years then you

"Solid Business. Solid work. Solid Guy I have a 1989 Bounder motorhome with
a nightmare of a roof leak. I tried and tried to fix it with no luck. Called around
a few places and was getting insane price quotes for a roof replacement. It's a
hard decision to make when it comes to replacing the whole roof an an old
motorhome. After talking to Jim we felt more comfortable replacing it. He gave
us a no BS price quote that was far cheaper than his competitors and
guarantee no surprise charges".

|If your roof is soft, water has probably
penetrated the sealant. This can cause major
damage. Always have your sealant checked
every year to prevent this from happening
|If your roof is turning black it might be
time to replace it. We will strip off the
old EPDM rubber roofing material and
install a new Dicor one piece roof
|This picture below show the sealant
starting to split. The sun can split the
sealant within one year allowing water to
enter under the rubber. This can lead to
water intrusion and destroy your RV roof.
|If you see water stains on your interior
ceiling panel you have a roof leak. Do not
wait to address this issue. have your
sealant inspected before it rains again.
|Sometimes it is necessary to remove
the damaged plywood. We can install
new plywood to provide a solid
foundation for our roofing material.
|Once our new plywood is installed we
glue on our new one piece Dicor
rubber roofing material

damaged cross members and installed
a new plywood roof.
|Dicor's Britek roofing material offer a
12 guarantee on the product and 5
year on the labor.
|Then we glue down the
new roofing material
1. Proper Tongue Weight
Set tongue weight to 10 to 15 percent of the trailer's total weight for good stability. If the tow vehicle doesn't have enough rear suspension spring rate to accept
this, get an equalizing hitch. The equalizing hitch will transfer some of the tongue weight forward to the front axle.
2. Safety Chains
Cross the safety chains under the hitch side-to-side, in an X pattern. If, for whatever reason, the hitch comes adrift, the trailer tongue will drop onto the chains
instead of onto the ground. And that will maximize your control and minimize the damage to you and your rig. Bonus: With the chains crossed, you can turn in a
tighter circle without them binding.
3. Tire Pressure
Check the tire pressures often. Run the tires at their maximum recommended pressure. They'll run cooler, and you'll consume less gas to boot.
Every time you pull over and stop on a long tow mission, do a walk-around inspection of the hitch, wiring and tires. Be sure the trailer harness connector and
breakaway cable are still connected. Check the nut on the bottom of the hitch ball, and make sure that the hitch pin and its hairpin are still holding the drawbar
on. You can probably skip checking the tire pressures at every pull-over, but a good thump of all four tires will let you know if one is low just by the sound. Now
check the tire and brake drum and wheel-bearing temperatures. A noncontact infrared thermometer gun is cool, and will keep your hands clean, but just using the
palm of your hand is fine. If one tire or bearing is noticeably hotter, you've got a problem.
5. Load Check
No matter how tight you make the tiedowns for the load, they'll loosen up as the suspension jiggles everything. Stop after 10 miles and retighten, even if that
means opening the door and crawling into an enclosed trailer.
6. Gas Saver
Save fuel towing your RV trailer by dumping grey-, black-, and freshwater tanks before leaving on a trip, or before returning. Fill the freshwater tanks at or near
7. Time Smart
Save a bunch of walking back and forth between the cab and trailer when hooking up. Connect the trailer plug, then turn on the parking lamps and the four-way
flashers. Now all you need to do is walk to the back of the trailer once to see if the running lamps are on and the brake/turn-signal lamps are working.
As you start your tow trip, check electric brake function as soon as you can by sliding the brake controller lever over an inch or so. You should be able to feel the
trailer brakes actuate. I check to make sure all the trailer brake shoes are working by holding the brakes on partway on for 10 seconds or so, and then pulling
over and checking that they are all heating equally up with my IR thermometer.
9. Bearing Life
Pack trailer bearings with the best synthetic wheel-bearing grease you can find, and do it annually. That goes double for boat trailers that are regularly immersed,
and double double for trailers that see a lot of saltwater.
10. Battery Charge
Trailers with electrical-operated brakes have a breakaway switch and a small 12-volt battery to actuate the trailer brakes if the hitch accidentally comes apart.
Check the state of charge of that battery regularly. Many trailers have no provision for charging this battery, so it has to be charged manually. I add a diode to
charge it from the trailer's plus 12-volt circuit. Got a smaller trailer with no courtesy lights or 12-volt wiring? Run the diode from the brake-light circuit. It'll charge
the battery a little every time you touch the brakes.
Have a safe and enjoyable trip in your RV !!
RV awning tip.Always lower one side of
your awning during rain. The weight of
the water pooling up on your fabric can
collapse the metal roller tube
