RV Furnace repair
This coach below is a 1997 Gulfstream. It had
a EPDM rubber roof membrane that was at the
end of its life span . We removed the the old
EPDM rubber . Repaired the wood damage
and glued on Docor's Britek roofing system.
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
RV Manufactures
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
Before

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
are back to square one.I have seen many people taking advantage of with Inferior rv roofing roll on products We have replaced hundreds of rubber roof material and offer
quality work at a reasonable price .We also throw in vents . Thats a great savings for you.
I replace converters and batteries and offer some electrical trouble shooting.

"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".

RV Awnings
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
We had removed and replaced the
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.

RV refrigerators

The most important thing to know about your RV is to keep it level when it is running. If you don’t you could ruin the cooling unit. New cooling units for 8 foot
cubic refrigerator retails can about $900. The reason I point this out first is because some RV owners were never told about this mistake. If you are in a
situation like pulled off the shoulder of a highway for a spell then just simply turn off your fridge. If you do not open the doors the temperature inside the
refrigerator will not go up that much.
       I like to plug in my rig about two days before I go on my trip. This allows the refrigerator to cool and also charge up my house battery. It can take up to 24
hours to allow your fridge to get to temperature. The safe zone for food is somewhere between 32 and 40 degrees. A temperature of 40 °F should be
maintained in the refrigerator. In contrast to freezer storage, perishable foods will gradually spoil in the refrigerator. Spoilage bacteria will make themselves
known in a variety of ways. The food may develop an uncharacteristic odor, color and/or become sticky or slimy. The freezer should be about zero to about 10
degree .Appliance thermometers are the best way of knowing these temperatures and are generally inexpensive. I like to hang my thermometer on the fridge
rack so I can monitor the temperature often.
       Most RV refrigerator work on either LP gas or 110 volt ac electric.  In the automatic mode the fridge will seek out 110 volt ac first. If ac electric is not
available it will automatically switch to gas. If your propane tank is turned off or you have too much air in the line it will not light on gas and the warning will come
on. What I do before I attempt to light my refrigerator on LP gas is to light the range burners for about 20 seconds. This will help burn the air out of the line.
Remember if your range top cannot light then your fridge will definitely not light as well.
       RV refrigerators will not work if you have dead house batteries. They normally will go into a lock out or check mode when the voltage falls below 10 volts
DC. This problem can occur when you are not hooked up to park power. Park power or shore power will keep your house batteries charged while in use. If you
are dry camping solely relying on your house batteries then this problem is most likely to occur. Campers who like to dry camp will sometimes have solar panels
installed to keep up the voltage in their house batteries. If your refrigerator does go into check mode sometimes you can simply turn of your fridge and then
back on. This reset usually works only the first time it happens.
       An RV fridge will work on propane while driving but some states do not allow you to have your LP tank on while in motion. You could possibly start your
generator while driving and run your fridge on electric.
       You probably heard about the recalls on several models of RV refrigerators. It would be wise to contact your refrigerator manufacturer and find out if
yours had been recalled. This is very important safety recall because there have been reports of refrigerators burning up motor homes and trailers. One of the
recall kits will shut the fridge off if it catches fire. Without this recall kit the refrigerator would just keep dumping liquefied petroleum on the fire making matters
worse.
        Your RV refrigerator should be serviced at least annually. This is nothing more than a good clean out of debris that can end up in the back of your
refrigerator. If you go outside and open the refrigerator access door you can see the service area. Debris can fall onto the top of your burner causing an
inadequate flame. This can lead to a bad performing fridge. With the fridge turned off I like to blow out the back of my fridge with compressed air.
       Shutting down your fridge for storage there are a few things to consider. Most of the condensation from the fridge will drip onto the drain pan. It is normally
located on the back wall of the fridge just below the fins. As ice or water drips down onto this pan it goes down a tube through the refrigerator and ends up
usually out the exterior door and eventually onto the ground. I have seen this tube just lying on the back floor of the fridge many times. This can cause water to
just spill onto the floor of the fridge causing water damage. This hose should install through the fins of the exterior door so water can land on the ground and
not all over the inside of your rig. Some RV manufacturers will extend this black hose and route it down thru your floor.
       The ice buildup in your freezer does not have this drain hose. So when the ice melts water will just pool up in the floor of the freezer. If there is more
ice/water that the freezer can hold the excess will overflow right onto the floor of you rig. I liked to mop up the water in the freezer before I put my trailer in
storage. I will also keep my doors cracked open to prevent mold while in storage.  
       RV refrigerators can last many years if operated and cared for properly. The greatest problems I have seen with RV refrigerators are bad cooling units.
Cooling units are the most expensive part on an RV. If it goes out and you have a two door fridge you are better off just replacing the entire refrigerator. This
will be more expensive then replacing the cooling unit but you will have far less issues with a new fridge then a rebuilt cooling unit. If you have a four door
refrigerator it will probably not fit out the door or window. Replacing the cooling unit might be your only choice.
