What type of sealant

On my slide out where roof meets outside wall it seems all sealant is gone. What should go there to re-seal it?

Prep the area, use some non-silicone caulking, then use Eternabond tape. I would also use some non-silicone caulking along the edges of the tape. This will give a longer lasting solution. For a quick repair, you can use self leveling caulking (such as Dicor) on top, and non-leveling on the sides.

Scrape all of that you an get off with a plastic scraper or putty knife and clean it well with Awesome cleaner and then the mfg recommended cleaner for whatever you decide to use.

I'd put a strip of Eternabond down over it, but you can use Self-Leveling caulking if you choose.

If you decide to go with eternabond they make a specific cleaner for it and it would most likely work better using it.

Our RV came with Eternabond over that joint from the factory. Most likely because it's not sticky like Dicor so it doesn't stick to the seals when the slide is in.
