When and how to reseal?

I searched Seal, Sealant, caulk, caulking...

Some of the seals are dirty and I am not sure if they need to be resealed. I would prefer just to reseal everything. So do I just go over everything with some type of sealant or scape it down first or what?

It is an 08 but I dont think it was kept covered.

If you just see some minor cracking of the existing caulking, you can go over the cracks with more Dicor Lap Sealant.
If your caulking is cracked significantly and separating from the roof, work under it with a putty knife, remove 90% and re-caulk.
You won't get every last spec of old caulk off. 90% is good enough. Don't skimp on the caulk, it will self level and be fine.

JMHO,
Doug

If you're talking roof resealing, then check this thread using the self-leveling Dicor

Hmmmm.... It was moved from a different forum.... Might be a JOF glitch.

I'll let Techy Terry (admin) find out why it's not coming up.
When corrected, I'll delete this conversation and bump this thread.... sorry and thanks for your patience

There are 2 types of caulking used on rvs- Self leveling caulk is used on flat horizontal surfaces- The other type is used on vertical surfaces as it stays where applied and does not "run" as does self leveling caulk- JMHO- DD
