Hi all,
We are getting ready to reseal our AS. We have a 31'. I know it depends on how generously I use it, but how many tubes of TempPro should I get? Mr. Mod thought 3 but I think that doesn't sound like enough.
Also, I'm really horrible at using the thread search,(I'm sure it's just me) but if anyone can point me to a thread that has good tips or info about resealing, I'd appreciate it.
We are both pretty handy, I just want to know about any 'no-no's' before we start.

#1) Must be applied to a clean surface. My favorite outside seam & flange cleaning tool is a nickle-sized 1/16"-wide stainless steel brush wheel on a dremel style rotary tool - patiently clean the old caulk dregs, oxidation, and petrified tree sap and pollen out down to bare bright metal and then apply your educated choice of caulks...

If you are finding damp spots on the plywood subfloor, check the awning support brackets—they do not mate well to the side of the body and easily can leak inside. They should be sealed underneath, on the sides and at the screws. There are 4 mounting brackets for the awning supports—two high and two low.

You can also use aluminum colored Acryl-r to seal on the trailer sides. They have an applicator that puts out a fairly narrow bead.
