  • Amazing blog. I love to read informative blogs like this. Proper RV roof maintenance is essential for keeping the RV or trailer in good condition for years to come. Before hitting the road, I always coat my RV roof with “liquid roof” as it protects my RV roof from severe weather conditions as it has excellent weather resistant properties (can withstand ponding water 365 days a year and have high tensile strength so can contract and relax in extreme temperature fluctuations) giving me peace of mind.
