When using a coating make sure to clean clean clean!
Correct you are. Clean first. My ex-wife's parents live in a mobile home which has a metal roof with aluminum coatings and asphalt cement eveywhere. they had multiple leaks. We used and elastomeric cement on all seams with polyester fabric. Let dry. Retured the next day, applied primer/sealer, then 2 coats of elastomeric coating.

We used this:

http://nationwidecoatings.com/prod09.htm (7595) Permabond Primer

http://nationwidecoatings.com/prod10.htm (7530) Permakote Plus

No roof leaks and its been 4 yrs.

We had enough product left over from a previous job to use on this mobile home. Works the best!

Mule-Hide products eliminate the primer phase, but I'd still apply 2 applications of coating. 1 on the first day, the 2nd a day or two after.

Your local Lowes has similar products a bit cheaper in price.

They are bright white coatings.

They are easily applied with a standard paint roller.
I've never seen a commercial grade coating sold at a big box store around here. The closest thing I've seen at HD is Henry solarflex 287 which is half a coating at best. Mulehide is a product private labeled by ABC Supply. They also have a line of single ply. IMO, the best way to remedy rv roof problems is to put a new white epdm roof on or tpo and term bar the edges.

The Menards here sales Mulehide EPDM, have no idea about coatings since we buy our material from a supply house. But yes skip the coatings and single ply it. white looks best we have done some in black EPDM. On my personal one I only used term bar on the front and back, the sides I just reattached the awning rail. Looks good and will not expect any leaks for a long time.
