Roof seams

I have a new 2011 Rockwood 1809. When I was cleaning it this past fall I also inspected it as best I know how. I noticed what I believe to be a, not so great caulk job on the roof seam where the front and rear panel meet teh rubber roof. Here are a couple of pic's.

Front roof seam

Both front and rear look the same. Is this okay or should I re-caulk?

I have tried unsuccessfully to get an opinion from FR on this so any and all help is greatly appreciated.

Paul

Buy some 4 inch Eternabond Tape, Follow the directions as to cleaning the surface before putting the tape down. You my friend will have no regretes, Stuff is the nuts. I would do it just for the peice of mind! I have a 2011 and all the end caps and roof seams have been taped !!

I would recommend the 6 inch Eternabond. No sense in skimping on such an important area.
There is nothing fundamentally wrong with the caulk job, and may be why FR is ignoring you.
But as BigRed mentioned, make sure to clean the area as per instructions.
Once done, no worries for a decade.

i agree with BigRed. Eternabond over the endcap seams and also the vents and skylights. easy fix to help eliminate any leaks.
see the pics by Willis in this thread....

Thanks,
