Caulking or sealant

I need to caulk the VERY FRONT TOP of my 5th wheel cap after the existing caulking is removed and the cap painted. Since this is the front top and there is a slight downward curve of the cap is it ok to use self leveling caulk?

Yes, it's ok to use self leveling lap sealant, BUT you should consider using Eternabond tape to seal between the roof and front cap.

So, remove all the caulking. Put a full strip of Eternabond? Do I caulk the Eternabond?

NO! Just clean all the surfaces with acetone and the apply the tape and press it down and you're thru.

Sounds easy enough

So I just need to make sure I span the caulking top and bottom the entire length?
