What type of sealant is needed for a Roo's Roof?

Hello. First time poster here. I believe I have the right forum since the sub forums didn't outline "roofs".

I have cracks in the sealant around the vents on my 2005 232 Hybrid Rockwood Roo which I just purchased used. I would like to seal the cracks. I have a few questions first...

1) Is the roof rubber? I don't know how to tell exactly.
2) Can I use "Dap 3.0 Advanced Gutter and Flash Sealant" or must I use "dicor"?

I assume I would clean the old sealant with some mineral spirits, then rub it dry. Use a caulking gun and add the "Dap 3.0" to the cracked area, wait, then celebrate!

Please advise.

Thanks in advance.

Use Dikor self levelling. I dont know what type of roof rockwood was using in 2005 but I presume it was a rubber roof I think the Alfa vinyl menbrane came later. Dikor is the way to do a good seal job!.

1) Rubber roof (AKA “EPDM”) membranes are smooth and will be slippery when wet. TPO roof membranes have a texture like an orange peel.

2) I use Dicor 501 Self Leveling or a similar Alpha product. I've never used anything else than these two brands. Maybe someone else here has used DAP.
