    I am a newbie and have an 01 Coleman Bayside Elite with an ABS roof that is in great shape. Just as a precaution I would like to use grizzly grip to seal it. My concerns is that there are two caps on the roof that appesr to be related to interior support bean on the interior . Can I use the grizzly grip and go over the caps or should they stay accessible?

    Also the roof seal will need to be replaced. Should I grizzly grip the roof and then re apply the seal?

    Thanks for the help!!

    If there no cracks or crazing, i would do it. Remove the seal, paint on the gg, go over the caps on the top. Replace the seal. If it has cracks or crazing you might be wasting your time. Just currious, where was the pup kept, cold states with freezing or warm states, no freezing? ( working on a postulate for the abs stuff)

    Pup resided in upstate NY. Roof is in perfect condition but my concern was if I can paint over the roof caps. I will replace seal first so I get a clean fit then paint.

    The paint is thick , unless you have gaps i would paint first . Then re caulk the pup.

    Yes you can paint right over those cap things. Remove seal, paint, put on new seal last.
