It was a joy, and I am looking for a new ladder and and that special caulk to help other fellow leakers as well. Living in the Malibu RV park is real tough duty but you guys deserve it!! Enjoy the million dollar view.
By special caulk, there are 2 types that are used on newer Airstreams. The first, for larger gaps and adhesion duties, is SikaFlex 221 polyurethane. This stuff is absolutely bomb-proof when properly applied (water proof too and makes a super adhesive). The grey color is a nice atch to the aluminum.
The other is called Acryl-R and is for fine sealing, like the side edges of the seams of your Airstream. It wicks into the seams nicely too. Any Airstream dealer should carry this, but the Airstream Store on-line also has it.
