Welcome jimmbob. I think you will enjoy your Airstream and these Air Forums. Maybe you will want to seal up the back of your trailer too. Airstream owners are always fighting a leak here and there. I'm resealing my Airstream this winter in the comfort of a heated garage.

Sealing tail light cover-65 GT

Hi! Wondering if any of you could advise on a sealant to fill a large gap between my rear tail light covers and the aluminum shell. There is old caulk I will have to remove, and since it's a wider gap than Parbond recommends, is there something better? I don't have any Trempro on hand. Is that the best product for the job?

See photo...
Thanks a million!

Clean the area well. Use a couple passes of the Parbond or Trempro.

Don't use SILICONE!

If you need to keep water out till you get the sealant, wax the area above the lights, buff well, then use wide BLUE painters tape to make a covering. It will not damage things if you replace occasionally...
