Guide to Resealing Your Caravan Roof Vents Using Liquid Rubber

With the camping season knocking at our doors, it's high time we get our caravans ready for some unforgettable journeys. An essential task in your preparation should be checking and resealing your caravan roof vents.

Why? Because the Australian sun can be harsh, and over time, it can cause the sealant on those vents to crack and wear, leading to pesky leaks.

No worries, though—we've got you covered with a straightforward guide on how to use Liquid Rubber Waterproof Sealant for this task.

  • Won't Break the Bank: Quality doesn't always have to be pricey. Liquid Rubber offers top-notch protection at a fair price. It's a no-brainer when you think about the cost of replacing your caravan roof versus resealing it.
  • Dependable: This stuff is made to last, providing robust protection against leaks.
  • Good for the Earth: With Liquid Rubber, you're using a product that's free from nasties—safe for you and the planet.
  • Clean the Roof: Give your caravan roof a good wash. A gentle scrub to remove dirt and grime, a good rinse, and let it dry.
  • Tape it Up: Stick Seam Tape around the vents, skylights, and all seams. Overlap pieces by at least 1 inch to cover everything well.
  • Get Coating: Apply Liquid Rubber over the tape, going a bit beyond its edges. Let it dry thoroughly.
  • More Coats: Add more coats until you're happy with the thickness. Let each one dry before the next.
  • Final Check: Have a squiz for any spots you've missed—pinholes, blisters, or thin patches. Touch up if needed.
