Eternabond preventative project

I bought two rolls of Eternabond, and the idea was to cover the roof seams on my one-year old TT to avoid anxiety and messing with Dicor in the future. When I got up there and started looking around, I realized that the roof membrane on the sides wrap over and go under the gutters:

So does this mean that, as long as there are no holes in the membrane, that I can avoid covering the sides with tape?

As of right now, based on what I saw, I'm just planning on doing the front cap, the back cap, and the vent seals. Does that sound like a reasonable plan? If so, I can send one if those tools of tape back and save $50.

Just keep in mind the gutter have screws, they might be visible or under some plastic "gimp" as it is called. I sealed into the gutter so there will be no need to do anymore resealing. I had a screw leak in one of my previous trailers through a gutter screw hole.

My screws are not visible and appear to be under the plastic "gimp." So, should I cover the sides with tape then, overlapping the plastic "gimp?"

I covered just bellow the screws / gimp (where I had gimp). Just place the eternabond so it gets bellow enough to bond well.
