Question Aluminum Roof

Any tips on removing layers of paint and unknown roof sealants off an aluminum roof. We just got a New Horizon Toyota RV and the roof leaks, there looks to be like 4 different layers of stuff on it. We have been tediously scrapping what we can off, any other ideas to help get it off (solvents or other methods) also we have sealed the seams with 3M 4200 and were thinking of using Iron coat to seal roof once cleaned up.

Thanks for any responses

The place to go for help with your Toyota, aluminum sided and roofed motorhome is a forum that is specifically about those motorhomes.
Forums - Toyota Motorhome Discussion Board

There are some Toyota motorhomes, the Sunraders, that are discussed in this forum but they are made from fiberglass as this is a Fiberglass RV forum.

Good luck with your project, I know the other group will see you safely through it, there are several members there who have repaired their aluminum roofs that were also in very bad condition including that horrific task of scraping off several old layers of material and then putting on new materials Forums - Toyota Motorhome Discussion Board
