Nothing that I can find. I mean, there are TONS of Jaycos out there with Alpha roofs. People are obviously maintaining their roofs with something, and I can pretty much guarantee that it's with Dicor since that product is so readily available and the dealerships use it on everything, so they say. I'd rather have a few small wrinkles than a leaky roof, but ideally it should settle back down to the way it was.

The internet is a wonderful thing! I do very little shopping in stores anymore. I go to Camping World's website to find what I need, then go to Amazon and double check. Sometimes CW has what I'm looking for at a better price, but when I add shipping costs, the price is higher than Amazon. And since I'm an Amazon Prime member, the free 2-day shipping usually gets me the item at a cheaper price. And I've had items delivered on a Sunday by UPS. I'll bet you can find what you need on Amazon.

Yes. Amazon Prime is $99/year. But I don't burn all that fuel shopping in several stores to find what I want, and still can't be sure I got the best deal. And then there's the free streaming video on my laptop/TV for all kinds of entertainment - plus free e-books, music, etc. Well worth the annual fee! (Who need NetFlix, etc when I have Prime!?!?!)

I have a 2013 with the same roof and my dealer won't use Dicor on it. They recommend, use and sell an Alpha brand self leveling caulk. They have touched up areas and I just applied two tubes this past summer to my roof with no wrinkling. When I get home I can snap a picture of the tube as I keep a couple tubes handy in case of emergency at all times.

Where did you get the tubes from? I called several different Jayco dealers around my area and they all said they use Dicor self-leveling LAP sealant. Same stuff I used. Seems like that's all that's available up here and it's what everyone is using.

I put eternabond over the original caulking on my roof. I was thinking of removing the old goo first, but the chances of damaging the roof trying to get that gunk off was not worth it.
Adding more self leveling sealer over the old stuff didn't seem to be a good option as you would eventually have to remove some or create a mountain

This is what I have used and what my dealer uses. I have never had an issue with it and have used it on the last 3 campers I owned. Even on the one I have now it has never caused bubbling.

I bought both of these tubes from the dealer I use but I am pretty sure you can get it on amazon. I think I paid right around $10 a tube.

Just an update on the roof caulking. Now that the new Dicor self leveling sealant has had time to properly cure, all of the initial wrinkling that occurred shortly after application has vanished. The roof is back to normal and laying flat, and the new caulking has adhered perfectly. I figure it was a byproduct of the curing process - this stuff takes about a month to fully cure.

So for those of you with an Alpha roof, if you choose to apply Dicor you can expect initial wrinkling of the roof material but it will settle back down to normal.

Yes you can use the Dicor. Our sealant is sold at Camping World under Superflex sealants.
