No, but I leveled the old dicor so it was flat on top and the tape looked good over it. I leveled it by using a heated metal scraper. Afterwards, I used wiped area clean with alcohol, scrub brush, and shop towels so the tape had a nice clean area to bond to.

Here's a description of each of the lap sealant types:
501LSW was designed to be used at the consumer level. It is thicker. Self leveling horizontal surfaces.
502LSW was designed to be used at the manufacturing level. It is thinner and a little more self leveling. Self leveling horizontal surfaces
551LSW is a non leveling lap sealant designed to be used on vertical surfaces (not windows or doorways).

Newer TPO roofs that are NOT Dicor roofs, should use the Dicor Ultra Sealant Primer/Ultra Sealant lap seal. If you aren't sure which roof you actually have, contact your manufacturer or local dealer.

Before applying the new lap sealant, clean the area with a cloth dampened with rubbing alcohol. Use just enough lap sealant to fill in any voids and allow the self leveling properties to take over and fill the void.

Hope this helps!

Safe and Happy Travels!

Thank you for the info and now I have the answers for the roof, but what do I use for the Windows and doorways? The guys at CW said silicon, can that be correct?

There is an answer there, however Dicor contradicts that in post #13
"551LSW is a non leveling lap sealant designed to be used on vertical surfaces (not windows or doorways)."

So you see my dilemma? I went out and bought non leveling lap sealant specifically for my doors and windows and now I have contradictory info.

I was told (and was sent some) by the factory to use Geocel 2300 *DELETED* around the doors, windows, slides and side walls.

Here's a link to Geocel 2300 series sealants.


CORRECTION:
I was going from memory when typing. I just went out and looked.
The correct Geocel is 2300 Vehicle Body Sealant...NOT MHRV.

Here's the link to it.
