How do you put new rubber roof on the slide out ?

by Barbara
(Buxton NC)

Question: We are installing a new rubber roof on a jayco 5th wheel,but we are not sure how to get the new roof on the 3 slideout.

Robbie: OK, its not fun but can be done, you'll need to bring in the slide about 12 inches and work the job on the inside part blind, first remove the rubber on the outside of the slide and then the inside. Use a mirror if need to see the screw pattern inside. It will take time but be patient and you'll get it done.

Warning: Do not take the easy way out and try laying the new rubber over the old..It won't stick.

Good Luck,
