This week just keeps getting Worse !!!

Well our move to Texas just keeps getting worse.
First our Glide Plate on our Trail Air Tri Glide Pin Box Broke and we had to stop, take the lower jaw off and get it welded to be able to continue our trip.
Now we arrived in Weatherford TX, the Pin Box Weld repair is holding up good but I got out to check in at the Campground where we will be for a couple of weeks and looked back at our Redwood, the Front Roof Membrane was billowed up about 6 to 8 inches from the front cap all the way back to the 1st Attic Vent.
Also the Attic Vent Cover is gone and the membrane material is pulling out of the vent base.
Called Redwood customer service about 4:40, phones already turned off for the night so I left a message.
I went up on the roof and do not see any tears or damage to the membrane.
Called a local RV Tech to come and look at it and access the situation and see what we need to do to prevent further damage in case it rains.

I'm so so sorry that you're going thru this. I'm awaiting our appointment to have our new 39mb bedroom slide leak addressed later this month so I can relate to your frustration.

Oh no!

Usually it is the front seam at the front cap that pulls lose and catches air, but you say that is still good?

Sorry to hear of your problems. Which vent are you talking about on the roof. Could it be when the vent cap came off it allowed air under the membrane to star it to lift. Do you have any pictures

Shoot, I hate to hear that Robert, thank goodness you were not traveling in the rain, I guess waiting around to leave Florida was a good idea. It could have been a horrible mess if it were raining. We will be anxious to hear how quickly you can get it repaired. Hopefully there is no rain in the immediate forcast.

It was billowed up after you stopped? If so it must have stretched the membrane? Hope you can get it resolved quickly!!

I would get a Tarp and have it on the roof for now until you can get it in and repaired. sounds like you will be getting a roof replaced soon.

Yep, we stopped at Oak Creek RV Park in Weatherford TX to register and I looked back at our Redwood, the roof membrane was billowed up about 6 inches high from the front cap all the way back to the first attic vent.
It slowly deflated as I registered at the CG, similar to my deflation when I saw it.
After we got setup, I went up on the roof to look, no tears, rips or damage and yes the membrane is stretched pretty bad, it now has a bunch of wrinkles and air pockets in it.

Can you get your hands on some eternobond before it rains ? You may be able to patch it down until it gets corrected ??

There is a local place near me that sells it , If you cant find any local, I can get a roll and ship it UPS RED to you today . . If I know early enough . . .

Its Raining now with pretty heavy rain expected today.
There appears to be no seam rips of tears, there are a couple of places on the front cap sealant that looked poor and the Attic Vent Cap is gone.
Used a lot of Gorilla Tape to seal up the Attic Vent Cap and cover the weak sealant areas on the front cap, nothing on the sides and no rips or tears in the membrane.
I used Gorilla Tape to seal up the last roof failure at the rear cap when the metal strap that attaches the Rear Cap to the Ceiling poked up through the sealant, towed it 300 miles and the Gorilla Tape was still in place.
