Temporary Roof Leak Cover on Mobile Home???

Hi guys. I may buy a mobile home with a roof leak that I need to temporarily cover until spring. I don`t have the time to fix it this year. What have you guys used or know to use to last until spring to temporarily cover the leak? Bare in mind, I am not totally sure where the leak is. It is a 10x40 mobile home with a stepped roof. Thanks.

Industrial tarp with junk tires on top. Not pretty, but in use by Rednecks nationwide for the last 50 years.

Good idea Joe!! Do you know where to get good tarps that big at for a fair price? Or should I go with 2-3 different tarps? Thanks.

The best ones are cargo cover tarps. Wally World blue ones will rip in the winter, no good for roofing, LOL !
If you have a trucking co. near you, those are the best. They sell the old ones generally, I know I buy them and cut them down to cover equipment.

FlexSeal????? OR if you get it soon, I have some aluminized roof coating left from a job and we could coat the bad spot. I'd be glad to help

I gotta go agitate the techies!
