Which roof sealer

I'm curious what to use on my 2016 Heritage Glen 5er. I emailed them and they said it's more of a TPO roof than EPDM but didn't say what to use or who makes it. I have a small spot on the edge of the roof at the gutter I want to fix. Can I use dicor non sag?

I have a TPO roof on my Rockwood. For self-levelling I use Alpha Systems sealant for TPO but Dicor has a TPO sealant, too. For the vertical sides, I use ProFlexRV. If you have a rip in the TPO get some Eternabond tape. There are lots of threads here discussing Eternabond.

Is proflex OK to use? On their website it's says not for EPDM or TPO roofs.

I don't use ProFlexRV on the roof. I use it to seal joints on the walls. You use a self-levelling sealant on the horizontal roof.

If you look on Dicor's website you can find sealants for both TPO and EPDM roofing.

So I called the guy at forest river back and he confirmed it's an alpha roof. I emailed the alpha people and told them I can't find alpha sealer in Dallas. They replied that superflex at camping world is the same thing but I could also use dicor. I'll save that email just in case I have problems with it. I thought I read for the warranty you could only use alpha. I'm getting new roof due to hail soon so I guess it doesn't matter but I do appreciate the replies.
