Slow leak through skylight on Jay Series 1006

Has anyone ever repaired a leaky skylight on their Jay Series 1006?
I own a 2009 tent trailer and got some slight water damage over the winter. I have examined the skylight from up above and can see where the water has seeped in through the top.
I am not the most able-bodied home renovator, but am willing to re-caulk the skylight on my own.
Can anyone who has already performed this task, please give me some pointers before I attempt my own reno-work?

Thanking you in advance,
Dean

Clean the area around the skylight really well and get some Dicor self leveling rubber roof caulk and caulk around the skylight. That self leveling caulk is some amazing stuff.!

Yes, I have fixed all kinds of leaks with Dicor Self leveling sealant. Buy a tube and run a bead around the skylight. use the rest of the tube on other areas that may look like it could use some touch up.

It's good to get in the habit of inspecting things like this at least once a season and being proactive rather than reactive.

Dicor is probably the right way to go. I had a skylight leak on my old TT and bought a can of Flex Seal (white) and applied it around the perimeter. It worked flawlessly. I can't attest to the longevity as I sold the TT about a year later but it held at least until then
