I just bought an 01 2505

stoked about my first camper but I have a leak where the fiberglass meets the rubber roof. I'm assuming some silicone will do the trick. Any advice?

I wish I remebered the name, But I used some sealant that is white in color and made for rubber roofs, and mobile homes I p/u at Walmart for 2 bucks, worked well for me, it expand and contracts depending on weather conditions.

Sorry I forgot the name

Hi and welcome to FRF!!

Don't use silicone. Goto an RV shop and get some self leveling lap sealant. Silicone will be pealing off in a few months.

Hi mytundrarocks,

Welcome to FRF.

Silicone is NOT recommended for RV sealing, especially the roof. To seal areas where items such as vents, skylights, antennas, etc.. protrude through the roof, use a self-leveling lap sealant.

Click here for info on Dicor Self-Leveling Lap Sealant

For sealing molding-to-fiberglass sidewalls and molding-to-ABS front caps, use a good RV quality sealant, such as Pro-Flex or Geocel 2300MHRV .

Thanks for the help Fella's

sounds like self leveling lap sealant is the way I'll go. This looks just like the Tundra Solutions site. any thing I should know about an 01 2505? No slides front booth dinet. I paid 6700 for it with the hitch and a wildfire 3500 watt generator. It's in very good shape, only issues were broken shower hoses because it did freeze last year on the previous owner, a little water damage on the floor cabinet, and the roof leaked into the bunk which made that platform weak. I wasn't planning on using that anyway. Tires are great new Battery, good tanks. How did I do?
