    Several years ago I ran 2 layers of black 1" wide Eternabond along the very tops of my rails to "close" them off . It's still holding up well , looks good and stopped leaks . I also ran a bead of caulk along the rails where they meet the roof .

    How many of you have a/c units and AlumiTite? It looks like the previous owner tried sealing the rails but I still have a pretty slow leak. I was going to change out the ac gasket first but after reading this post the rails are an easier fix for me and it seems like a more common issue.

    My camper is a 2004 Redwood high wall I am wondering how much that roof weighs? How many guys and cases of Beer will I need to help me remove it? The rear of the roof where the leak was has sunk so I need to do it this year (Summer/Fall) Will four be ok?
