Besides telling you about RV roof repair, we have winners to announce in our Hughes Autoformer Contest! Two lucky HowToRVgeeks viewers just won brand new 30- & 50-amp units. Was it you? Scroll down to the bottom of this post to find out. wink
In the world of technology, 9 years is an eternity. After all those years of reliable service, the time had finally come to move on from our DataStorm internet satellite dish. During a week-long visit last year, our friends Jason & Nikki Wynn suggested that it was past time for us to ditch the dish and switch to a Millenicom Wi-Fi device.
They were right, but what would we do about the holes that would be left behind when we removed the dish from our roof?
Watch the video to see how we patched the holes in our fiberglass roof, but you can do the same thing on just about any RV, including rigs with metal or “rubber” roofs (TPO or EPDM), too.
You can also watch our video about how to prevent RV roof leaks before they start.
So… about that contest…
