Question about Dometic Rooftop RV Air Conditioner

1 Answer

The shingled roof on my mobile home does not have an overhang and with our hard Wisconsin winters, ice backs up and forces leaking within the trailer. The roof does not need replaced. How can I correct my problem? I thought of putting on a drip-edge. Any ideas?????

You actually posted this in the wrong area but I am originally from Minnesota and can tell you. What's happening is called ice damming. They do make a drip edge type of thing that isn't very expensive for just this very thing. Go to Lowes, Homedepot, Menards etc. NOT your local trailer supply as they usually charge more. The clerk at the hardware store should be able to help you. Good luck. Please don't forget to give me a Fixya rating.

How do I re-roof my house easily

If you mean re shingling, here in USA there are usually building codes to be complied with, such as: If there is just one layer of shingles on the building, you can add a second layer, but if there are two layers of shingles they both must be removed, and new tar paper installed before a layer of shingles are placed. Also with all shingles removed is a time to inspect and replace all rotten wood of roof, before repapering and reshingling. If you've never seen of watched the process by done by professionals, I'd recommend getting bids from three roofers, and pay the best price to do it. Get a full written contract before they start, because there could be significant damages if there are leaks after the job is done.
Maybe watch some youtube videos of roof reshingling. there are many special tool techniques to do the job right, (And not fall off the roof either)

Thawing frozen water pipes

Look underneath home and try to find/follow water supply pipe. If it is exposed you will probably have to wrap it with heated tape to prevent future freezing. When thawing pipe open a faucet in the home and keep an eye on the pipe. If there is a crack in the line, once the water starts to flow you will see it spraying/leaking out, and the pipe will have to be replaced. If there is no leakage, you are lucky.

How do we install a solar attic fan to our house?

If you have basic carpentry skills it is a 6 on a scale of 10 for difficulty. You must cut a hole in your roof, install the fan and flashing that comes with the fan then replace the shingles that were removed in the process

Hello young lady, if I lived close to Morgan county, I would come and see what I could do to help you at no charge.Do you know anyone that may be able to come over and at least put a tarp of some kind over this leak until you can make an arrangement to have it repaired? You can't live right under these kind of conditions! If you know any men folk that you can call, please do it.A tarp would help a lot. Make some calls to some roofing repair Companies and explain your situation and hopefully someone will come to you're rescue. Good luck and God bless you.

Sincerely, Shastalaker7
