Roof sealant

While washing the roof of my 2015 FC 28, I noticed water getting underneath the cover of the skylight thru a separation of the sealant. Can self-leveling Dicor be used here or do folks recommend the brand listed in the owners manual?

The majority of the skylights are cracked around the edges as they are cheap plastic and are overtightened at the factory.If you do some research a lot of Airstream owners are installing skylights from Maxim.

First modification we made on our 2015 FC 28ft. was changing out to Maxim skylights. Did it as well on our 2012 25 ft. FC when we had it.

Did you replace yourself or use a dealer?

I am having trouble with a leaks around the Fantastic Fans. I have cleaned the area of old caulk and replaced with DICOR. I have 2 coats so as to spread out and dry completely. I have coated the base of the FF up to the lid so as to seal the whole area. I have also used Captain /Tully on the rivets till no bubbling. The leaks appear to be in one area of the fan; away from the edge closest to the rib . I have pulled the insulation to verify this.
Comments or what next? I know, "THEY ALL LEAK"
Has anyone tried that spray advertised on TV where they cut the bottom out of a boat and replace with a screen door and coat it with this "Miracle" spray and than take the boat out and TADA, no leaks?

Roof sealant

Are you sure it's the Fantastic housing and not something else?Sounds like you went above and beyond in reselling.I would check other items nearby.
By the way mine don't leak.

I did some experimenting with it, not on the trailer. Save your money and effort, it will not last very long. It produces a thin flexible rubbery film, might as well brush on rubber cement.
Will it do what they show in the commercial? Yes, but not very long, and not under any stress or wear conditions.
