Eternabond Issue

I am starting a new thread since my issue is a little different.

I noticed deterioration with my Eternabond. It was chewed up along the top (first picture, 2" tape).

After conferring with Eternabond, they sent me 3" tape and recommended that I remove the old tape. I did this yesterday afternnon on the right side, it was a pain in the rear. I just got the white part off and left the goo. The problem came in putting the new tape on. Since the goo was still there, the new tape was stuck as soon as it made any contact whether or not the backing was in place.

The real problem came up this morning when I went out to do the left side. The tape that I put on yesterday afternoon looked just like the old tape, chewed on the top (second picture, 3" tape). All that I can think of is that birds (I have a lot of crows around here) got on the roof and started pecking the Eternabond.

At this point, I stopped. The tape is intact enough so that water intrusion shouldn't be a problem and the roof integrity should be good. It just doesn't look very good.

Any ideas????

You definitely have some sort of critter chewing or pecking that tape. Do you ever see squirrels on the roof of the coach? I know the squirrels around my home have chewed on my deck rails (the synthetic Trek boards), a plastic utility cart, and a rubbermaid storage bin next to the house. However, they have never messed with my motorhome. If they do, I will start getting a lot more practice with my pellet pistol

While parked you could string fishing line front to back on sticks to make the birds think twice to fly in and land. We did that on a boat to keep birds off topsides.

I live in the Sierra foothills, many squirrels (mostly ground), never seen a raccoon here, lots of birds.

Trimmed the nearest tree so that squirrels don't have easy access. No new damage after the first night.

Raccoons are nocturnal and often not easily seen, you might want to put a light with a motion sensor up.

Glad they are not continuing the attack!
