NOT for the roof of your RV.. Silicon is not recommended on rubber roofs.

interior caulking

Right now I need to use it for bathroom.
Where the tub spout meets the wall in the bathroom, the caulk separate.

The existing caulk doesn't look like a regular home caulk. It's sticky like a bubble gum.

that's probably putty tape. I have used regular bathroom caulk in shower to repair a crack in the liner and it seems to hold up fine. For the roof you want to use a product like Dicor
