Default Roof Construction

OK, checking out the trailer after winter, I found a small tear in the rubber (?) roof membrane near the TV antenna, about 1 inch long. The rubber roof has parted from the underlying wood in an area less then 1 foot diameter. That area also will give some when pressed down. I probably have some dry rot in that area and hope to repair it myself. Has anyone done that, and how difficult would that job be. It would seem that it would consist of cutting out a piece of the rubber roof, cutting out the bad wood, then replacing the wood and replacing the rubber roof piece. Of course all the seams would need to be sealed, and then possibly a coat of rubber sealer over the whole repaired section. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks. This in on a 2012 FunFinder X 210UDS.

I have not worked on damage on the edge of the roof like that, but is sounds like it might be best to pull off the gutter trim so you can see underneath and use some Eternabond tape to reseal before putting the gutter trim back on. The Eternabond tape will work wonders for the small tear as well.

Good luck,
