Roof caulk

We have a 2018 Rockwood Mini Lite 2104S. Our dealer checked with Forest River to see what type roof membrane we have. It's an Alpha Superflex 3. I want to buy a tube of caulk for touch up in the future. Can I use Dicor or should I buy Alpha System's caulk?

If l had a new TT I would call Forest River, or Alpha Products just to make sure, I like Dicor products for sealing on roofs and if they say it's the one l would pick.

RECOMMENDED REPAIR METHOD FOR ALPHA SYSTEMS
ROOF SEALANT




During routine cleaning (3-4 times a year), all caulk and sealants should be inspected for voids or cracking. If the caulk is cracking, pull up any loose caulk. Do not use any tools, such as a putty knife, that could puncture the rubber roof membrane. If you cannot pull the caulk off by hand, it is still adhered to the roof and should be left alone.

Clean the areas to be re-sealed using regular soap and water. The area must be dry before continuing.

Apply a generous amount of Alpha Systems 1010 Sealant over the top of any existing caulk in the area being re-sealed.


To order products now, call 800-462-4698. Please allow 3-5 business days before product ships from our facility. Shipping charges will be added to your order.

I called Alpha Systems Inc. and they say to use Super Flex Total Protection Sealant and pointed me to Camping World. I did an Internet search but don't seem to be able to find it anywhere else.

You won't.

Superflex is packaged by Alpha Systems for sale at CW only.
It is exactly the same sealant as Alpha's 1021. It is self-leveling and used for horizontal surfaces. It is available in white, black, beige and grey.

Alpha 1010 is not self-leveling but can be used on both horizontal and vertical applications.

x 2 on the dicor, tried the other stuff and didn't like how it set up after it dried. Didn't have to use it until 2nd season. Like any of those sealants though, they don't keep well once they're opened including the Geocel. JMHO
