I really could not tell that much of a difference in the two pics. One clearly had some silicone sealer applied and the other did not. I could not see any large gaps but I believe you that they are there.

I think your right about too thick under puddy. Take it off, clean it up and then use an appropriate thickness of puddy.

Good luck.

Vin.

The Trim is done!!!!!

wahooeee... ok, I just finished the Trim that i was freaking about. Not the greatest art work in the world but i did it and i know its done..If it leaks and ruins me 10 years from now at least I know i tried.
it took me longer to get the trim off with all of the putty tape that mobile tech put on.. took me almost 1 hour to clean it up.. Dealer gave me 3/4 inch 1/8 thickness butyl tape.. Only thing was that might concern me but im not gonna think about it is that with the thin butyl tape it did not ooz out..none of it did.. but when i look at factory trim on other side i dont see any of that oozed out either. and the other issue i had just like i feared is the new screw hole that the tech drilled the screw stripped..it was the very last screw that i put in.. All i did was pushed two toothpicks right into the hole right thru the trim and hand tightned that screw..it then screwed in..
I also got a thing of Proflex...stuff is a PITA... but it looks like it will seal...i have no doubt that the proflex alone will keep water out of that trim even if the butyl tape didnt ooz like it should, i put a nice bead of proflex on top of the trim..I cant see water getting past that proflex...
I will post pics this weekend of it when im camping, it started raining as i was finishing the proflex so i put the slide in..im not touching the slide now till camp friday. And the trim is flush to the slide just like the factory one is..
Like i said it doesnt look perfect, trying to rub proflex with my finger was a real PITA and some smeared... but i dont care.. i will now keep a thing of proflex in the camper and that trim i will just keep eye on it every few months and add proflex as needed if it ever cracks... thanks for all the help.. I am feeling good.... if anyone has anything negative or concerns about the butyl or toothpics go ahead and post it..... i feel good...
