    In the world of technology, 9 years is an eternity. After all those years of reliable service, the time had finally come to move on from our DataStorm internet satellite dish to a MiFi device.
    But what would we do about the holes that would be left behind when we removed the dish from our roof?
    We show you how we patched the holes in our fiberglass roof, but you can do the same thing on just about any RV, including rigs with metal or "rubber" roofs (TPO or EPDM).

    2″ x 50′ Eternabond Tape Roll: amzn.to/2GMqVdq

    6″ x 50′ Eternabond Tape Roll: amzn.to/2nFqn0d
    Turtle Wax Polishing Compound: amzn.to/2nFqBV7 (good choice as it does NOT have any waxy residue that could affect the adherence of the Eternabond Tape)

    Full-Time RVers since April, 2003, we share DIY (do it yourself) RV maintenance, repair, travel, upgrade and operational tips & tricks.
    Many RVers are eager to learn more about using, maintaining and caring for their rigs. We hope our experience can help others go DIY, saving time & money, plus the satisfaction of a job well done.
    We're handy RVers, not professional technicians. We're happy with the techniques and products we use, but be sure to confirm that all methods and materials you use are compatible with your equipment and abilities. Regardless of what we recommend, consult a professional if you're unsure about working on your RV. Any task you perform or product you purchase based on any information we provide is strictly at your own risk.
