Roof Sealant

I have a 2015 Salem Hemisphere Lite 266RLBS 5er. Does anyone know what the putty like sealant FR uses on the rear corners of the 5th wheel trailers roof. It is a light tan color to match the rubber roof. It appears that it did not adhere properly to the rubber material and is possibly heading for a leak situation.

Also, the condensation water draining from the air conditioner down the back does not flow into the gutter and out the side. Instead it is going into the metal seam on the left rear corner that has the plastic strip in it and down the inside under the plastic strip. There is a lot of screws down that seam and I see lots of opportunity for leaks. Any ideas how to reroute the flow other than making the trailer unlevel? Sorry, I did not get a photo before returning to storage.

Sealant should be Dicor lap sealant.

Thanks Tfort, I'll see if our local RV parts store can match the color.

The Dicor product should come in tan color as well as others. Good luck.

On the flat roof, use self-levelling lap sealant. On the vertical walls I use ProFlex RV sealant.
