Smile Getting on roof

I am wanting to go around and place new lap sealant around my vents, antennae, air conditioner, etc, along with cleaning my air conditioner. Have any of you gotten on the roofs of your Sunline ? I know that I need to place down a blue tarp and then some boards to expand your body weight out. Any tips from you that have done this will be most appreciated, such as what size boards and any other pertinent info that you have. Thank You-----------------Mike

Put an old piece of carpet down to keep boards from digging in. I us a piece a 3' x4' 1/2" plywood between rafters on old moving quilt I bought a Harbor Freight. Some time i'll also use 1'x 12' at edge to have a little mounting area so i can move plywood around

Jim is right...1/2 ply is the best...also, I use two pieces of about the size Jim mentions...one to work from and one to move to where I want to go next while I'm standing on the piece I'm working from.....Make sure you span the two by two's that frame the length of the trailer.

Thanks for the quick reply as usual my friends. That is sorta what I thought of using in the way of boards, but never thought to use a piece of carpet. Thanks once again.

Hi Mike,

See these 2 posts. This sounds like what you are wanting.

I use an old canvas (thick and big) and 5/8 plywood 2' x 4'. I have a few of them. big enough to span the rafters that are mostly on 16" centers but yet light enough to man handle up the ladder. Mine is higher up the air then your non slide model. When we had he T2499, I used the same method

Rubber Roof Caulk - Inspect and repair 101

This may be more then you where thinking on cleaning the AC. If yours have never been done, it's due come next year before hot weather comes.

Cleaning the AC coils - (Lots of pic's)

Good luck and hope this helps

John

Thank you John. I just recently saw the pics of the roof problems, but the a/c will come in handy. Thanks
