I have been searching for that answer for some time. It might be right in front of me, but I can't see it. I have the feeling that the different divisions may use different products. Don't know. It is not in any information I got with my unit, nor in the sales literature.

Found a gap between the roof material and the aluminum trim piece the other day, the guy at the local RV store handed me a tube of self leveling sealant and said it would work fine. With a lot full of FR units he had no idea as to what the roofs were.

Alpha is the maker of the Superflex roof on the FR3. It's a membrane with UV protector in the material. Google Alpha Superflex roof for more info.

Goto their website and ask your question. They've gotten back to me fairly quick from what I remember and was able to send pictures for them to look at and give me some feedback. Here is the contact of the person I've dealt with.

Exclamation Alpha Roofs

Well it took a while BUT YES THERE IS A WARRANTY, its 12 years Limited
and prorated. Just the Membrane.

Clean With Dawn dish soap and soft brush min once a year.
For sealant to caulk on your roof you can use the Superflex brand sold through Camping World. This is our brand. The only recommended alternative is the Dicor 501 or 502. I did attach a care sheet for your as well, please remember that you have a TPO roof and not a rubber roof so please do not use products intended only for rubber roofs.
If you have any questions contact Monica McCabe
