Eternabond should be considered a permanent fix, Dicor needs to be checked at least every two years. A 2 inch wide strip of Eternabond that reaches all the way around the perimeter of your roof is going to cost significantly more than a tube of Dicor.
I prefer Eternabond when sealing seams and screw heads.

I was considering cutting small squares from my roll of Eternabond to cover each screw. The roof is a textured fiberglass. Do you think this would work ( seal) ?

Eternabond looks like a great product. I have 3 slide toppers on our 2500TS so there is no way I can get to tape the slides tops.. However on other parts of the roof I have seen where some people dicore the edges of the eternabond tape.
With this in mind we are back to inspecting the dicore lap sealant. On another point we have Maxx Airs on all of our roof vents so they do afford quite a bit of protection for the dicore around the vents.
Will order some on the net and cover those expose screws.
