Caulk/Leak repair

Have read several posts in the forum re caulk and how to repair leaks, etc. I want to caulk the 2 ridges running from front to back, on the roof between the aluminum and white roof material. I also want to replace all caulk around HVAC, etc. Would appreciate a list of caulks to use and have on hand for repairs throughout unit.. Especially, Eternabond RV tape..Is it a good thing to have on hand or use along with PM caulking? I want the list so I can order all at once. Any information greatly appreciated. 19' Bambi 2006. Tom

Sorry, I come up with some weirdos on the forum but in my case, it is almost necessary. Was a passenger in a head on car crash in England several years ago, and I sustained a severe concussion that hampers my current memory. Its called the Swiss Cheese effect...some information seeps through the holes, but most doesn't. I look at several good answers but it is difficult to pick the right one, especially, if multitasking is required. I can not remember such things as safe combinations/telephone numbers; a necessity with the Agency---thus medically retired. I get lost in stores,etc. So, if you see me feeling my way in a trailer park somewhere, point me in the right direction, please. Thanks much and I appreciate you all...........Tom

Vulkem is the sealer of choice. You can also order it with the oil-can type of applicator directly from Jackson Center.

BTW Tom, Eternabond tape is not used on Airstream trailers except the few fiberglass ones such as the "squarestream" and the fiberglass class A motor-homes (I had a '94 LY diesel pusher and used Eternabond on it, but NEVER on an aluminum body).

That is very nice to know. If you can think of any other product I might/could use on a routine, preventative maintenance, please let me know. Material ordered as you advised. Many thanks, Tom
