Vent Sealant

Is there a special type of sealant we should use around our vents on the room of our Vibe?
Thanks!

Lots of posts here suggest using Dicor.

If you want to take the time, I would clean off the factory Dicor, clean the area with acetone and use Eternabond tape.

Dicor self leveling, would be my first choice, but if you are only putting a bead around the vent itself do not use self leveling. Dicor also makes a caulk. All depends on what you need to seal. I'm pretty sure and someone correct me if I'm wrong but I think that is what the Factory use's. either way it will still work. CW sells it and most RV outlet stores.

Externabond would be my choice too. This stuff is just crazy sticky and is extremely weather/waterproof. Just be careful how you put it on .. once it lays on the targeted area you cant get it off ....

I just cleaned the old sealer around mine with mineral spirits and let it dry and then filled in any holes and cracks with Dicor self leveling sealer. Great stuff and easy to do.

Looks like this when done properly.

Used a heat gun and plastic putty knife.
