What Type of Caulk?

What is the translucent (nearly clear) caulking used around the cargo door frames on a 2018 Eagle HT FW? Does not seem to be silicone since not soft. Brand and product description/number would be appreciated.

If others ever need to know:

In Canada, it is LePage Clear Quad Sealant available at HD and Canadian Tire.

In the USA it is OSI Clear Quad Sealant.

You can purchase OSI QUAD Sealant at Home Depot, Menards, and Lowes.

Good to know about the GE Climclear. Hopefully it is easier to apply and finger smooth than the LePage Clear Quad.

I applied the Quad over a 2 foot length after straightening a cargo door frame bent at the factory. What a pain to smooth out. The Quad may have been old stock since it did not seam to flow much.

Caution with the OSI Quad Sealant. I recently used it on my tail lights. I will not use it again.

Clean up is with mineral spirits.

You can not tool it well. a.k.a smooth it out with your finger. The directions on the tube even say not to tool it.

I was told by Jayco OSI quad is what they use and recommend on the vertical surfaces.

I was told the same and understand they use the OSI Quad Sealant at the factory. That is why I bought it and tried it. I am not saying not to use it just that it is not very user friendly and advising of my recent experience with it.

ProflexRV is what professional coach builders use. It's better than anything they use at the factory because the factory uses the cheap stuff.

I have some screws backing out on my slidetopper bracket & the sealant is looking bad. Would Dicor be better or the Quad to seal the mounting plate, or just a good 50yr caulk ?

The next sealant I am going to try is Proflex RV. I called Geocel and spoke to a Cust. Service Rep. I asked what the difference was between Proflex RV and the Geocel 2300MHRV. They checked the specs for both and told me they have identical specs and performance data. They stopped short of saying they were the same and could not confirm the chemical composition was the same. The Rep did say that they would not be surprised if they were the same product, just with a different label.

As I have not used Proflex RV yet I can not say how easy or difficult it is to work with.

If you need to reseal a horizontal surface then Dicor should work. If it is a vertical surface then no-sag dicor should work. They are 2 different products
