Caulking or sealant

Hey Guys;

What do you suggest I use for general caulking on my 5r. This would be mostly for trim that the caulking has started to crack and needs to be replaced such as the wheel fenders. I imagine I would use it to touch up in places where it was aesthetics and to stop water penetration. It shouldn't be the self leveling type as this is mostly on the side of the rig.


Thanks

Proflex is good in many RV applications.

Well I recently purchased some almond colored GE silicone caulk for my bathroom but not sure how suitable silicone is for RV use.

Silicon is fine. Used it for years. But if you need to get it off it really is a bear to do so. It just sticks that well. There are siliconized acrylic caulk that would possibly be a good compromise.

I have a gel coat sided trailer and Palomino recommended paint thinner and a plastic scraper to remove adhesive and silicone sealant from the siding. For really tough spots I carefully used a razor blade with lots of paint thinner for lubricant. It has worked well for me. When it's clean I use some glass cleaner to remove any residual paint thinner.
