after removing old/cracked/peeling sealant, why not use Eternabond tape? It is sold in 1,2,3 and 4 inch wide rolls. Try amazon... read the reviews there...

Eternabond sticks to any roof without regard to roofing material, and sticks for a long time without cracking or peeling. Several people on here including me have done write ups of installing Eternabond tape to seal any surface on the roof.

Does not look pretty, but after cleaning small roof area with a little bit of mineral spirits on a rag, then rubbing that off with IPA (alcohol from the drugstore) the Eternabond tape sticks like crazy over any surface you might have.

just my 2 cents, but I would not think you need anything else... unless someone has a different idea

One more thing. If you think there is a possibility that water has already leaked through the cracks, I think you should inspect for damage and dry it out and repair any damage before sealing it up and forgetting about it. Just my 2 cents.

I have a FR Flagstaff and wound up with a tear in the roof due to a low branch getting caught at a Thousand Trails campground. I repaired the tear (with tan to match my roof) Eternabond that I picked up at Amazon for $10.99 USD. The roll was 4" x 6' and appears to have been cut from a longer roll. After application I used Dicor self leveling, also tan, and have not had any issue at all. I don't know why FR would say not to use Dicor since it appears to be what they use.

Spend what's necessary for the repair. If you wait it's going to cost you a small fortune to fix it later.

Dicor 501 in the yellow-green tube for EPDM and Dicor 610 in the blue tube for TPO. Alpha Systems also has a self-leveling sealant for TPO roofs.

If that black "dirt' doesn't wash out, it may be that your roof is worn. EPDM roofing is white on black and if the white is gone and black shows, your roof should as a minimum get coated with a roof coating to extend its life.
