New item - sealing tool

I was watching tv last night and this add for a sealing tool came up. It's mainly for caulking around your bathtub. Looks like it would be a great tool for sealing our Airstreams. They have a websight prosealtv.com check it out and let me here your feedback before I order.

Becky, it's a tube of silicaone and a few scrapers for $ 28.00
Not.
Silicone is not typically used on Airstreams. It does not seal well against aluminum. It has very limited application points in an Airstream. Bath/galley perhaps, and some window hinges on Corning glass equipped models.
You can buy a few $ 0.50 plastic putty knives and a bunch of Vulkem or Par Bond for $ 28.00. Cut notches in teh putty knife, or use suiteble wooden scraps for cleaning out the gaps youare trying to seal.

Of course it would work with Vulkem or Parbond. But I doubt if it would work any better than a few $ 0.50 plastic putty knives. Cut notches in teh putty knife, or use suiteble wooden scraps for cleaning out the gaps youare trying to seal.

Unless you really want the free Lazer Steemer?

I wasn't making fun of your spelling. Your suggestions seemed so 'right-on' that I was just repeating them.

I know, no offense taken. Still, I did not notice until after editing time was over.
