Help! 90 weight paper

I live in a 47 yr old trailer. Roof bowing. Landlord put (just) 90 weight paper on part of the roof. The inside ceiling is completely open. Will that 90 weight paper stop heavy rains from coming into my house?
Not sure if I did this correctly. Couldn't find a place to ask questions n storms are headed my way....soon! TIA

Welcome to the forums! I moved your post from an existing one so you would get more exposure to information.

If the roof is bowing it will collect water and will leak. Is there no insulation nor ceiling in the trailer? You may garner more advice if you were to post pictures of what you have both inside and outside so we can see what you see. http://www.doityourself.com/forum/el...your-post.html

It's common for an older mobile home roof to have dips/waves it in, does the water collect in the dips or does it still run off? Are there gaps in the roof or did the landlord just cover it up to stop leaks?
As Larry said, pics will help us better understand what you are dealing with and how to correct it.
