Lets post photos, i would like to see the differences and similarities between our Rigs. lets also use this thread to collectively trouble shoot our issues. My only problem at this point is the collecting of water in that one corner. I think part of the problem is the added height of the caulking, the bead is so high and wide, that it is creating a damning affect. The other thing that adds Ht is the extruded corner pieces..I thought about maybe removing all the sealant and replacing with Eternabond, it would sit lower(I think). what do you boys think, G

What did you use to clean your roof? Mine is as new as yours, always inside yet still looks worse than yours.

I'll get pictures of mine, and show you a real water pooling issue.
stay tuned,

Ed, i am no expert but i think you need to copy and paste from a hosting site like Photobucket or Snapfish. After you load on to the host site, you copy the URL, then just paste it in your post. There are probably other ways, but i am no 9 year kid with mad computer skills, Gene

Gene, that's some pretty heavy duty awning mounting there. Looks very cool.

Here's the only shot I've got of my roof. I'll try to get some better ones.


Ed, I put most of my pictures into albums on my facebook page. Then if I want to show one of those pictures (as I did for that roof shot) I go to the picture on my facebook and right click over the picture. A box opens up and one of the choices down at the bottom is "properties." I scroll down and left click on "properties." That opens up a box showing the properties of that picture. It'll be a long url thingy starting with http. I copy that url by highlighting it and holding down the "ctrl" key and pushing the letter "c" key. Then in the body of where I want to put that picture I type [img]url[/img] . Those are brackets around img and /img, not parenthesis. That will make your picture show up in the post. It sounds kind of troublesome but after you've done it a few times it's pretty fast and easy.

Woops, it didn't show how I insert the url to make the picture appear. I type [img] and then immediately after that paste in the url I had copied. Then immediately after that type [/img] and that should get the picture to display in your post. Let's see if this works.
