Exposed Screws on Roof ???

Have a 2012 3011DS. The 2 rows of screws going down both sides of the roof of our camper are not covered at all. Seems like they should be covered with dicor. Are yours sealed?

Don't know exactly what your talking about but anywhere moisture can seep in should be sealed especially if it is a screw on the roof

There should be caulk over the screw heads. You can get up there and hit them all with a caulk gun and they will be fine.

Ours is the same way. Dicor on front and rear caps but none on the screws along the length of unit. No issues thus far.

There is a layer of butyl tape under that entire trim piece.

So no worries then. Was wondering if they forgot to seal them. Tks for your input.

I would worry unless Dicor Self-Leveling or Proflex Polyurethanne was covering them, Even with Butyl tape water can seep under the screw head/
