Best sealant for exterior stove vent?

We want to redo the sealant around our exterior stove vent on an 08 airstream. I see that parbond comes in an aluminum color but I want to use a product that will remain somewhat elastic when cured so vibration doesn't cause it to crack.

What product is best for this sort of thing and what do you use to clean it up so the new seal doesn't show?
Thanks.

SikaFlex 221 in grey. Perfect match for your aluminum. Great stuff too!

It's the same sealant that the Airstream factory uses. Some Fastenal stores carry it. It is also available on line. Just Google 'Sikaflex 221'

I see it at Inland RV. I had trouble finding it in grey locally.
