Roof evaluations

New RV'r here. Look at these photos of the roof to my 2007 Puma 30QBSS and tell me how to fix it. The roof seam, the slide out tape, and the space where the slide out slides into the camper, there was a black rubber strip that was laying on the top of the slide out that I believe acts as a seal of some sort.Click image for larger version

IMO the slide should come out for this to be done correct.
The slides top and side seal does need to be replaced as does the EternaBond.
It is a one piece roof and it would be best to keep it that way.

Any ideas on the best adhesive to use to reattach the rubber seal for the top of the slider?
It attach's to the inside and goes the length of the slider.
Refer to photo...

I would use this.

3M Industrial - Scotch-Grip™ Rubber & Gasket Adhesive | Adhesives | Emedco

Someone else may have another option.

Got the roof done.
It was a long hot day with frequent water breaks.
Used Dicor self leveling caulk and SticknBond tape.
Used the SticknBond on the seam to the slide out and dicor on the edges.
Then did the roof edges, vents, and the front and rear seams and anywhere it needed the dicor.
I'm very happy with the work and have some peace of mind as it relates to preventing water leaks.
I went around the exterior of the TT and closely checked the windows, compartments, etc. looking for gaps or cracked seals. I caulked those with the Dicor non-self leveling caulk.

Does anyone know where I can buy a replacement seal you see in the photo or the specs for it?
