If you are referring to the roof edge where the rubber roof transitions to siding, I would suggest Eternabond tape. Clean the roof/wall thoroughly and use a roller to properly install the Eternabond tape and you will never have to caulk again.

I use Dicor, available at most RV dealers and some big box stores.

For reference, there are two types of Dicor Sealants most commonly used with RV's; #501-LSW self leveling for horizontal surfaces, and #551-LSW non-sag for vertical surfaces.

+1 dicor is great as well. I just find I never use enough of it and the tube just goes to waste.

True....., but I have 4 BIL's w/RV's that seem to "borrow" a lot of my RV stuff so a tube won't go to total waste during a camping season

My TT has a nice large outside storage compartment located on the slide, keep most of my RV spare parts and stuff there (tools in pass thru), so family camping gatherings are usually a PM opportunity for my BIL's. Always something to "fix".

I have a mostly full tube sitting on the shelf in my garage. I used very little of it for my spring inspection in February or March. I often wonder if I'll be able to use that tube again? If not, oh well, it's not THAT expensive to get a new tube once or twice a year. But it feels wasteful to just discard a basically full tube of Dicor...

Maybe, as long as it was kept at room temperature and the tip was sealed tight. I can normally get a couple seasons out of tube if the tip seal did it's job.

Well, in that case, it's probably gonezo. It gets upwards of 120* or more in my garage in the summer, and I just let what was in the tip dry up. I didn't even bother trying to seal it.

Lesson learned, I'll try to seal it up tight next time and store it in the house from now on...

Haven't had to try it with DICOR yet, but in general I've found that a piece of duct tape, something we probably all carry, wrapped tightly around the tip of the tube works very well as a seal. I've tried the caps that sometimes come with tubes and haven't had much luck with them

That's pretty much been my experience!
