100% silicone caulk

Is it better to use 100% silicone caulk instead of putty tape or butyl tape to mount slide topper brackets to the fiberglass Rv??? Opinions please.

NO SILICONE ANYWHERE ON MY RV!
Now, off my soap box.

Butyl will be your best solution.

Mark screw holes and drill them on fiberglass, put the butyl tape on the back of the bracket and attach.
As you tighten the screws the butyl will fill in around them, ooze out around the bracket and the excess can be removed carefully with a plastic putty knife.
