I'm a big fan of eternabond too, used it to seal my fantastic fans and a new maxim skylight. I also used their double stick tape.

My process is here on post # 422

Update from Shiny Pete. I finally got around to starting on the Eternabond Roof Project on our Pete yesterday afternoon. I peeled and scraped caulk gobs and EB taped the entire perimeter pf the front Fantastic Fan, and will install a Max-Air cover over it as well. I will also be doing the rear FFan the same way.

Now, I know silicone caulk when I see it, and I'm afraid JC is using white silicone on the roof now, or at least tubes full (tubes....full )of something white that is very silicone-like. Does anyone know what it is? I have reviewed the recent caulk threads, but I'm just not sure.

I peeled GOBS of the stuff from around my plumbing vents. I felt like when I was learning to solder-the bigger the glob the better the job? Not Peeling and scraping this stuff off was a job, and I think the EB tape didn't stick to the dribs and drabs that are left. EB won't stick to silicone............

Rambling here.........more later on this project.

I used EB on my previous SOB with great success. Now that I have found a leak on right rear sided over the bed, I am going to seal that seam with EB. I don't see any obvious gaps, but the current, thinly applied sealant is starting to peel up. Mine is a '99 and likely past due for a re-seal anyway. BTW, when I did my SOB I even used some Dicor around the edges of the tape in places where it might tend to leak more than others (leading edges etc.). It seems like a great product and has wide use in the building industry, I don't know why they don't use it at the factory. Likely the cost.

Another vote here for Eternabond. I like the Alumibond, since it's silver like the trailer. I have pictures of my project if anyone wants to see them.

eb will stick to dicor as it is not silicone based. i have used it on my roof seams and hope it will work as expected. prep it well, follow directions, take your time, get help with the job if another set of hands will be better. nothing is perfect or 100% but i feel this will do the job for my trailer at least at this point. i am 62 and not eager to get up on the roof to caulk much but will. good luck with the eb. i am rooting for all who use it.
