Best caulking bought at the big box stores.

I need to re-caulk around sides of RV (not the roof). I see ProFlex RV seems to be what most folks use, which I will need to order and will get here in a 4 or 5 days. My ? is.... Does Lowes, Home Depot ect carry caulk similar to ProFlex that I could find in the caulking isle and not have to wait the shipping time for Proflex?

I have found Proflex and Dicor products at Walmart, Camping World, any RV dealer, Ace Hardware, and other hardware stores. Sounds like you need the non-self-leveling product.

I use Lexel in tons of places, including around the RV where 'Proflex' would be used.

Lexel is great stuff, dries and stays clear too.

It survives being abused in my kayaks for sealing bulkheads.

Best caulking

Home Depot OSI QUAD Advanced Formula OSI QUAD Advanced Formula 10 fl. oz. White #001 Exterior Window, Door, and Siding Sealant VOC 10 fl. oz. White #001 Exterior Window, Door, and Siding Sealant VOC, this is really good in areas where there is flexing at the seals, I use painters tape where I donít want it, apply, one good swipe removing excess, remove painters tape. This does not cleanup with water or solvents.

OSI is good stuff.

Think Menards carries as well.

They used it when they replaced the windows in the house.

One of the installers had built his own truck camper and sealed all the seams with it - nothing leaked and holding up well after a few years.

I use Dap Ultra Clear on the sides of my rv. I have found it tools very well. I have used ProFlex before and feel this Dap is easier to use and clean up. Good luck.
