Roof repair?

First off, may I say how much I appreciate this forum and those of you that take time out to help others? Oh, I just did😏

After removing vent covers and trying to get the roof ready for a clean rubber coating, I found this puncture on the left rear. I have pulled the aluminum out, as it was pushed inward. Previous "repair" of this puncture was as follows: pushed the aluminum inward, covered with an aluminum patch, fiberglass patch and covered with another aluminum patch. It was then screwed in place with self tapping sheet metal screws and painted over with rubber. Once all that was removed, (water was puddled between the two patches and the rafters rotted underneath) cleaned up, etc. this is what it looks like.

What is the PROPER way to repair this puncture after I replace all the rotted and missing wood? I honestly don't know how I towed this home without it falling apart!

Thanks in advance!

Not sure but I would clean down to bare aluminum, cut an aluminum patch about twice the size of hole. Outline with butyl rubber tape and screw down about every 2 inches then cover the edge with Dicor self leveling caulk. Examples below. Just one idea someone else may have better idea

10.3oz Lap Sealant Dove - RVWholesalers.com RV Parts and Accessories

Trimmable Butyl Tape White 3/4" - Bedding Deck Hardware Sealant

Any suggestions on a good rubber/Goo remover?
