Time to replace roof caulking?

Yo experts, need some advice. We have an 07 Bambi. have traveled from NC to Alaska via Alaska hwy.... from NC to Arizona and from NC to Everglades City Fla. in the past couple years. The Bambi has done great. My Question when should I replace the caulking around the roof seals and when it's time should I let the dealer do it?

You should get up on a ladder and look at the seals and caulk. If they are compromised( cracked or dried out) replace as needed.
I would only have a dealer do it if I was unable to climb a ladder.

Unless you havw some water leaks, the exterior seals should be good on your 2006 for at least another 5 years, and maybe even more.

Sort of depends on the ambient temperature, the roads traveled and if the running gear was not properly balanced.
