Roof Sealant

I apologize if this has been covered someplace else in the forum, but I couldn't find it. We have a 3011 DS 2016 Forester. I need to seal the seams on the roof which is fiberglass. The local RV dealer said to use dicor Lap Sealant self-Leveling. At the bottom of the tube it has 501LSW. I would like to know if this is the correct sealant to use on a fiberglass roof and if it is, how long to wait before it can get wet after putting the sealant on the seals? We don't have covered storage and it has been raining a lot here.
Many thanks

I used that for my rubber roof TT. On their website they list the curing times. I think 4 hours after applying you're good for average rain, but probably not ideal.

I have the same MH. According to what I read we have an Alpha System fiberglass roof. According to Alpha Systems you should use their Alpha Sealant 1010 non-leveling, or 1012 self leveling. There is also a Superflex product which CW sells for a lot more money. Imagine that! I called Alpha Systems to find out the difference between them since they make both. Waiting for return call.
