Thank y'all, I appreciate all your tips. I decided to go with the Sikaflex 221 along with the CT and Acryl-R. Now to order everything and get started!

Any help here for a newbie?

Just a quick question: I have a couple roof leaks that need addressing. Should I seal the inside skin too? Sounds like everyone here says sealing the inside is SOP.

Iím afraid that if the inside skin is water tight, Iíll never know when the outside skin leaks. Iím concerned I could be taking on water for years before I ever see any evidence. As it is now, Iím wondering how far the water traveled between the skins before it finally found its way inside.

The inside skin we are referring to are the interior exterior skins.

Ah! Thanks.

I'm new here, and haven't learned all the lingo yet. Pertinent details still get past me. With that knowledge, rereading the thread, it's clear now. So I'm on my way to HD to pick up some Sikaflex for the exterior of the exterior roof

Fortunately my rig was kept in covered storage when not on the road. When the A/C was replaced a couple years ago the new unit has a slightly smaller foot print. There's a gap on the seam where it runs under the A/C unit that is now uncovered.

Make sure you get the correct sikaflex. You need 221 sikaflex for just about everything. I used 715 sikaflex on the roof- it's semi self leveling. I believe the sikaflex at HD is for concrete. You can order the right stuff online😄 Make sure you get some painters tape to go around where you need it. This stuff is not that forgiving. Also get some minerial spirits for clean up.
