Bob dirt I used Dicor self leveling lap sealant on my roof and it did a really good job it is not going to leak if you clean the surface most dealers or Amazon will have a cleaner for RVs with rubber roof membrane. Acetone might work but it could make it worse . Remember that dicor is really sticky and will get every where if you aren't careful how you put it So keep a rag handy I used a little mineral spirits to get if off of any think it was not supposed to get on. including me.

Your roof is probably either EPDM (rubber) or TPO. The only other type would be aluminum. I don't know which one Forester uses on their MHs.

For EPDM, use Dicor's 501 self-levelling sealant in the greenish-yellow tube. For my TPO roof, I use Alpha Systems's self-levelling sealant.

Oops. I completely forgot about Fiberglas. Dicor will work for Fiberglas. Check out YouTube videos by RV Geeks. They have a Fiberglas roof on their Class A MH.

Bobdirt roof sealant

the pop up I used to have had a fiberglass roof and was sealed with Dicor on it from the factory and when I rebuilt the roof rafter I used Dicor to seal the corner pieces and roof rail it works but you have to give it a day or two to cure before moving it.

For cleaning rubber roof you could use denatured alcohol , I have an aluminum roof I used acetone.
For caulking my aluminum roof I used Dico C-10 self leveling, I also use the butyl tape 1in. Wide. Dico also makes a product for rubber roofs.
