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 i

RV Rubber Roof Replacements

workmanship by San Diego's leader in RV rubber roofs replacement
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 10n
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 thruogh the rubber and
elswere.We strip the roof, peeling off all the EPDM rubber roof material , vents and moldings. If there is wood damageI 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

RV awnings come in many different sizes and colors. The most popular
awning out there is a Dometic 8500 series. This awning is on about
half of all RV's. This is a very strong and durable awning. Dometic
usually will use a vinyl canvas. It can last up to about 10 years but
normally only 7 due to the amount of sun we get down here in
southern California's.
After each rain it is a good idea to open up your awning and let it dry
out. If you don not mildew will start appearing on your awning and dirt
will stick to the mildew witch is very hard to clean off.
Never have your awning out in high winds or heavy rains. The wind
can rip and bend your awning. Also heavy rains can collapsed you RV
awning due to the weight of water.
We have installed thousands of RV awnings. We service all of San
Diego County. RV Expert stocks most vinyl canvas's and sizes
Call us for an estimate. We would be happy to replace your old awning
material with a brand new fabric from Dometic
RV hot water heaters can last from 5 to 25 years depending on usage and natural environment
(condition of the water). Atwood water heaters have a glass lined tank therefore an anode is not
required. Where as Suburban tanks are not. Suburban water heaters require anode replacement at
least once a year.The anode is located at the bottom of the tank. It is fairly easy to remove with the right
size socket and breaker bar but I recommend calling out a qualified RV service technician .There are
safety issue to deal with especially if the water heater has 120 volt service.  Once removed I like to flush
out the heater with water for 5 to 10 minutes getting rid of all the calcium deposits left in the bottom of
the tank.  if you don't replace the anode in the suburban heater your tank often you wont get a very long
life out of your RV water heater.
There several model water heater to chose from The basic of RV water heaters have a manual ignition (
you light the pilot with a lighter)
Most water heaters have a direct spark ignition, ( DSI) feature. A switch from inside the RV lights it
electrically. And there are some water heaters that hive a 120 high voltage option This allows you to run
it on 120v a/c .

RV Roof Air Conditioners
RV water heater's
RV roof air conditioners can last 5 to 35 years
depending on what brand and luck you have. The
problem with RV roof mount A/C's is that the
manufactures do not install a service port for freon .
This is a problem for the RV technician. They would
have to cut the freon line and install a service port. Add
freon and then find out why the air lost its charge to
begin with. This is just one aspects of repair an motor
home or trailer roof mount air. There are other problems
with air conditioners like start capacitors , circuit boards
and relays to go out as well. If your roof air is older than
10 years old you might just want to replace it. In the long
run this decision might be the best.
