The roof on my RV is soft in a spot, and the obvious fix done the right way would to replace the wood under the roofing.
When I look and read about it, the videos and write ups make it seem simple. Pretty much just peel the rubber roof back, unscrew the wood and replace with a new piece, then row back the rubber roof and seal.
I am new to ?RV? repair, is it really that simple?
I am hesitant to peel back the roofing. Plus my camper is outside and stays at the camp ground yearlong, so I would be doing everything outside
Any suggestions
Thanks Barry

Assuming you have an EPDM rubber roof, yes it's that simple.  Not without its drudgery, but not technically challenging either. If you have basic woodworking skills, you can do it.

The luan plywood substrate may be glued as well as screwed to the roof structure - assembly techniques vary by manufacturer.
