2016 Flagstaff Super Lite Roof Color

I am thinking of checking/redoing my sealer on my roof this weekend. My Flagstaff doesn't have the regular white roof like my Salem did. The camping store near where I work sells a couple different colors of Dicor self-leveling stuff. Does anyone know which color I should get to match the roof or other sealer that is there?
Thanks

The factory uses Alpha products.
They sent me a tube of the Alpha 1021 Self leveling sealant in beige.
Alpha 1021 Self-Leveling

I have since confirmed (from Alpha) the Super Flex sealant sold by Campers World is Alpha's 1021 re-branded for sale by CW.

Superflex - Beige

Dicor is a super great product but there have been a few reports of using Dicor products on an Alpha TPO roof where it has caused some rippling/bubbling of the TPO.

Thanks. Anything I should know about the TPO roof that might be different than my 07 Salem?

No. It doesn't need any kind of treatment and can be cleaned with Spic-n-span or Blue Dawn Dish detergent.

Here's a link to the Product Care page at Alpha.
Alpha Product Care

Note the last sentence on the page I linked... as I eluded to earlier...
"ONLY SUPERFLEX BRAND SEALANTS CAN COME IN CONTACT WITH
THE SUPERFLEX ROOF MEMBRANE."

Can anyone tell me what type of roof I have on my 2014 Salem Cruis-Lite TT? I was up there once about 6 months ago and noticed it's white in color.

I also noticed someone (or the factory when it was built) coated all the seams with a heavy bead of something. It's pretty ugly but as far as I can tell the unit is not leaking anywhere, which doesn't tell me much because I have no idea how to really know if it IS leaking, other than seeing water in place where it shouldn't be.

Thanks any advice is welcome.
