Resealing Interior Seams

Hello everyone!

I have the interior skins off and I'm about to embark on insulating and reinstalling them. Before that though, I want to leak test and reseal as necessary. There is a white sealant over the seams, around the windows, etc. currently. Should I remove this sealant or just add over it with a simular material?

Thanks!

If I had access to the inside of the exterior wall seams, I would take the time to seal them with just about anything that you think might last a LONG time..... ParrBond comes to mind, or Eternabond Alumibond... MAN!!!! THAT would last forever!!!
Then, continue with the restoration.

(Just thought of a product called reRubber... THAT would be a good, easy sealant that you can brush on and expect to last!

I’m in a similar spot with my interior skins off. I started picking at the white sealant in a couple places and was able to pull it right off. That to me means that it’s all coming off to be resealed. I’ll probably go back over it with TremPro but I’d be curious to hear what others have done. Regardless, I’ll need a lot of whatever I use.
Paul’s suggestion of Eternabond sounds interesting, especially if you could cut a 6” roll in half to have 3” strips. That stuff sticks like crazy but isn’t cheap.

We used (a lot of) Trempro on ours after having pulled off most (but not all) of the old white Vulcum. Used Sikaflex in a few places, too.
