what kind of caulking does factory use where roof meets sidewall

Not concerned just wondering.. when i look around the perimeter of my roof, right around where it meets the sidewalls im wondering what kind of caulk they use? it looks like there is some stuff starting to peel, almost like they used caulking or silicone maybe under the top gutter/molding and some of its starting to peel from the EPDM... once again, not concerned..Primetime seems really well built and knows what there doing.

If I'm correct about where you're talking about, my Roo uses lap sealant all the way around the perimeter of the roof. Same stuff they use around the skylight and fans, just not as much.

If it looks like it is being squeezed out then it would be gray Butyl tape. That can be peeled off and leaves an edge where the joints are. If it is Butyl caulk I would question that. Regardless, when I caulk I use Dicor or Proflex. Both very good caulks.

not sure tigger, my guess would be its a caulk.. its very very thin.. gray and thin..i see it on a few spots... kind of looks like it was overused in some spots...but maybe its tape..but it looks very thin...either way, im not gonna touch it.. its not hurting anything...
