best way to seal leaky roof fan exhaust

so this weekend I discovered (with the help of a lot of rain) that my fan vent on the roof has a leak. Never should happen on a 2015 model. But I need to fix it correctly. I know there are a lot of products on the market; from spray sealant to different types of caulk & silicones. I just want to scrape all the original silicone & re apply something new. Can anyone suggest what may be best? It is a very slow small leak, but you know water.....it doesn't take much to cause considerable damage to the inside of your PUP> Thank you.

I just installed 2 vents. the eternabond is not the prettiest, but will not leak.

eternabond tape, right over your existing caulk, which should be cleaned before application... comes in 1,2 and 3 inch widths

I was entertaining the tape. I just hope it's a clean look. My top is beige. So I may not like the color contrast. Thanks for the suggestions guys
