How to seal over screw heads on the slideout?

I washed my 3 month old TT this past weekend and did a roof inspection. Everything looked great except there were 3 or 4 screwheads sticking through the sealing tape that runs along the top edge of the slideout.

Screw head


Several screw heads along edge:


The good news is, the camper looks great!

I would just use a dab of Dicor non leveling caulking to cover the screw heads and call it a day.
Happy camping!

Do the Dicor thing even if you install toppers.

Thanks everyone, Dicor it is. I bought some last weekend in order to do my roof inspection but the rest of the roof is fine. I will take it with me my next trip and put some on after I put the slide out.

As for the slide topper, I am considering one of those before next season.

Use 4" seam tape then coat with Safe-T-Plex 20 Year Acrylic Elastomeric RV Roof Coating.
