I used Eternabond on my last trailer. That stuff is great.

I too recommend EnternaBond. Used it on my old motorhome.

What caulking would you guys recommend for the walls? And if I want to freshen it all up do I need to remove all caulking or can I just run a bead over all the existing caulking over the entire trailer? Or even easier, run Eternabond on the wall seals as well?

Pro Flex RVô Flexible Sealant by Geocel
This can usually be found at your local hardware store. Ask for Geocel Pro Flex for RV sidewalls.

Another great sealant is 2300 MHRV Vehicle Body Sealant by Geocel , but it's mostly available through distributors.

On the walls (verticals) I use Dicor Lap Sealant #551 LSW which is a Non-leveling/Non-Sag sealant.

On the roof touch-up I'm not as particular about cosmetics, but the walls that's a different story. In most cases I remove the old caulking and then apply new for effectiveness and cosmetic reasons...... I guess it becomes a personal judgment call. I haven't used Eternabond on my walls.

When I am trying to be neat with the lap sealant, I found using painters tape to mask off each side of where I am caulking. Works really well to keep it neat.
I use the same procedure to get a good look in my bathtub :-)

Should I leave well enough alone on the walls and only touch up the needed areas? (Maybe 2-3 I need to touch up, I'm just OCD). If I need to remove all existing caulking I may be just wasting my time. If I could just remove what is right out in the open and caulk over the top then its not much more time.
