Roof sealant

Hello.. Getting ready to fix/repair small 'mysterious' ceiling/roof leak on my 2006 Jayco 19h Exp. Already bought the self leveling caulk, and good 4" & 6" sealant tape.. Wondering which roll on roof sealant for TPO (2 gallons) to use.. Any suggestions?? Don't want to spend a fortune etc! .) Saw many reviews on You Tube but still not sure.. Thanks .)

If you remove the Dicor sealant you should find the mystery leaks. Over time the Dicor can crack and also lose adhesion. In only 5 years I found places where the Dicor was just laying on the roof. Also found a hidden bubble where they poured on the Dicor and there was a bubble in it that did noting to seal. I removed the Dicor to get better adhesion for the Etearnabond tape Found a rusty screw head (water must have gotten in) and a broken off screw. Also found staples that were coming up. All fixed and taped over.

My main thing is, once you have tape, why paint the roof??

The Dicor does have cracks.. Still sticks though.. Sealed them with silicone caulk. Worked for a couple yrs. Gonna take all the silicone off, clean it real well, and just put the tape down and see what happens.. Thank you RogerR .)
