Dri-Z-Air

Don’t overlook the roof air-conditioner gaskets. Over time, these can deteriorate, allowing water to slowly seep into the roof. In the short term, a failing gasket will lead to unwanted moisture, mold and mildew; but, over time, a failing gasket can cause expensive damage. Scrape away the old gasket, replacing it with a quality black neoprene foam gasket. If you’re not comfortable with this job, have it performed by a qualified RV repair center, particularly if the roof is sagging around the unit. This is a sign of damage that will require professional repair.
A dry interior starts with the exterior. Sealant around roof vents, skylights, antennas, etc., can break down over time, allowing moisture to seep in. The good news is, prevention requires little more than some elbow grease; the first step is to carefully scrape away old sealant (a putty knife is OK on aluminum and fiberglass roofs only. Otherwise, use a non-marring plastic scraper carefully to prevent tearing the roof membrane).
