Roof Caulking

My 2006 AI has a leak around one of the vents. The caulking is cracking .
Does anyone know the type of caulking I should get to repair this and go around all the other roof caulking ?
Cheers
Colin

I was told by my airstream dealer to use Sikaflex caulking, works great, pain in the neck to work with. I used mineral spirits to smooth and clean up. Every seam, every window!

Yes to Sikaflex. It's what Airstream uses and is available from the Airstream store, Amazon or other online vendors. I've never seen it at local home improvement or hardware stores.

Try a nitrile glove and use your index finger as a smoothing tool........works very well for me for small bead lines. For larger areas, use a rubber or plastic spatula and just wipe the SikaFlex off when done.

Though might find it at places like West Marine as well.
