Replacing City Water Inlet - Sealant to use?

Good day all!
I stupidly forgot to winterize the city water inlet, and I sprung a leak. I've got the replacement in front of me ready to go, but I don't know which sealant to use when attaching it to my 2008 Safari.
I have Adseal (alum and white colors) and Acryl R with the application thingy. Definitely don't think I need the Acryl R, and it's possible for the AdSeal white, but I want to get advice from everyone before I put this in this weekend.

Your thoughts?

Use pipe dope for the threads and Vulkem (Trempro 635) where it attaches to the body.

I agree with Jammer.

635 is a great product and will set up nice between the shell surface and the plastic flange. You might apply the sealant and run the screws down evenly to where its snug.. let the sealant dry for a day or two and tighten the screws down a bit more. This way you wont squeeze all the sealant out on the initial install.

I've got to reseal my inlet as well.

I can't find Trempro 635 or Vulkem on eBay or Amazon. Only find Trempro self leveling or Vulkem 116, 45.

Where can I find them.

Thanks for the great tip Airslide!

I'm not sure what style of inlet flange you have, but I've become a big fan of Tempro 635 (the artist formally known as Vulkem) behind the flange as a working seal, and a very thin taped off line of Parbond around the perimeter. I think it looks so much cleaner than Vulkem or Tempro. But I do want the durability of the hidden seal of Tempro.

Vintage Trailer Supply, Out of Doors Mart, and Inland RV all sell it mail order. Most Airstream dealers have it in stock.
