Sealing a roof leak

I have a 2004 jayco jay flight 27bh. I have a roof leak, I think it is coming from around the roof antenna. I watched several utube videos, read info on line and I bought some dicore lap sealant calk and this morning got on a ladder and cleaned all around all the areas that may be leaking or had cracks. -the roof antenna had a big crack in some dicor that was already there. I applied the dicore on top of the dicore already there, after I cleaned the old several times and let it dry. It's looking very good.

Meanwhile, the actual rubber roof has some alligatoring (that is what I would call it). What do I do about that?? Something to worry about?

Also when people use eternabond tape on the seams, are they putting it over the rubber roof? Looking at this seam here....

If you read your owners manual, it has a write up on the roof antenna, and the annual or maybe semi-annual maintenance of the roof antenna. Your leak may be from the crack you fixed or it could be from the internal maintenance that is suppose to be performed. I would read up on it if I were you. It certainly can't hurt. I never did the internal maintenance on my previous TT, and never had an issue. I did however do it last year on my 2012. Good luck. I'm not much help on the roof issues. Personally, it appears to have dried out, but I really don't know. I am sure someone will answer your questions concerning both the roof, and etherbond tape.
