roof seal leaking

Hi, have a 2013 Wildwood with a leak at the top front seam. What's the best sealant to use for repair?

Eternabond tape, won't ever see a leak again after putting this stuff on.

Eternabond or Dicor ... it really depends on just where the leak is happening.

I've seen loose screws on the metal seam trim, which is under the vinyl trim insert cover, cause cracks in the seal joints in the roof corners.

Pictures help ...

I 2nd this approach. I put Eternabond tape all around the caulking on the Roof on our trailer within the first week of purchasing it New from dealer. Can't go wrong with the stuff and will prevent leaks.

Eternabond all the way...

What you need to do is REMOVE the lap sealant, self leveling caulking, acetone then apply a 4" fiber backed seam tape that accepts a coating, this is around all vents, kitchen base and cap, front and rear of rv, the coat with a brush 2 coats, you will never have to get up on your rv roof several times a year ever again.
