sealant question

I was just wondering what everybody uses to do general seal maintenace. I contacted Gregg Rollins at forest river and he said to use a silicone based caulk. I tried some stuff called Degaseal 2000 that was the worst thing I have ever used. I'm just curious to what everybody else uses.

I maintain my seal with fish.
Whoops, wrong forum.!

Seriously, I think most folks will say to stay far
away from silicone based products. Much better
to stick with Dicor, C-10 and such.

I am in - I hope - the last stages of rebuilding
a rotted out TT and the PO used silicone based
caulk like it was going outta style. It didn't make
all that a good a sealant and is SOOOOO d**n hard
to remove!!!! Would like to string up the person
who put it on.........

The dicor type sealants work MUCH better and
can be removed and resealed without the use of
so many four letter words.....


cheers,
johnd

I use Dicor self-leveling on the roof and ProFlex Rv on everything else.
The ProFlex is not supposed to harden or discolor with age.
Definitely avoid anything that isn't specially made for RVs.

I want to recaulk around a couple windows and thought I heard that ProFlex was difficult to work with. Is there another preferable caulk to use for vertical surfaces?

Pro Flex is terrible stuff. It flows OK but will not stick worth a hoot. I would go with Dicor.
