What kind of sealant to use?

Quick question... What kind if sealant should I use on places other than on the roof membrane? After cleaning and inspecting my roof, I found several areas that need some attention. I know to use Dicor self-leveling lap sealant on areas involving the roof membrane (around the vents, roof edges, etc), but I also found some areas on the fiberglass walls. The one in the pic below is on the top front wall where it bends to join the roof. There is a gap that has developed between the fiberglass and the trim. Also have a similar problem where the seal is attached to the side wall above the slide. Do I use Dicor also (non-leveling type) or can I use just a regular silicon type caulk?

I would not use silicone. Dicor (non-leveling for this job, as you suggested) is better.

I've seen recommendations for ProFlex RV sealant but have never used it.
