Recommended Sealants

I'm sure this question has been answered before, but I did a quick search and couldn't find it. I have a Hummingbird and need to apply sealants at wall penetrations (Windows, lights) and trim. These are the clear/white sealants and black butyl sealants. What types/brands do you recommend? I had the dealer apply the roof sealant already. Thanks.

I was told by Jayco, on the roof use self leveling Dicor, on the vertical surfaces use QSI Quad sealant. It's what they use is what she said.

Do you mean OSI Quad sealant?

Good stuff here. You can also use Dicor non leveling lap sealant on the sides of your camper.

I used to use Proflex on sidewall penetrations, and it is good. But, I've been using OSI Quad for a while now and I think it stays cleaner, is more flexible, and is easier to apply than Proflex.

Thanks to everyone for the advice. It sounds like OSI Quad is unanimous. I also have a black butyl sealant at some trim joints that have really opened up. Any suggestions for butyl sealant? By the way, spring is here in North Carolina so I flushed out the antifreeze last Saturday and sanitized the water system. My first camping trip of 2019 is this weekend!
