Sealant, roof - after replacement

Last year our coach went back to the factory for a roof replacement. When it came back we noticed that the front (cap area) leaks. We have contacted Forest River and they tell us to reseal the seam where the roof meats the front cap.
Upon visual inspection, the seal looks good. But, it still leaks... What would be the best caulking to use here?
Many thanks in advance!

I would put 6" wide esterbond tape over it instead. (Spelling on tape) wrong, you can get it on Amazon. I would do the front and back caps, then you never have to worry about it again.

I would tell FR, NO. It is their responsibility to replace a leak free roof. Tell them that a roof from RVRoof.com will satisfy your roof issues and you do not want your RV back at the factory while you make payments. If this is a dead end than Eternabond tape is a good way to go.
If you want to caulk. Dicor and Sikaflex make good self leveling caulks. This is what you want on the roof but, make sure it is compatibile with your roof material. I know Dicor makes self leveling caulks for fiberglass and rubber/TPO.
