HappyCampeur, it's not that I have to carry "that one tube"
The situation is in the bath that the ABS plastic counter, shower pan and etc... sit next to laminate or painted aluminum with an anodize aluminum trim over the joint.

What is good for ABS to ABS?

It is always noted on this forum that using silicone sealant is a no-no.
Most silicone sealants have acetic acid in them(probably a solvent). This will of course have adverse affects on the aluminum.
In the glazing industry there are lots of applications where glass is sealed in aluminum frames with silicone. In that instance they often use Spectrum 2 silicone which does not have acetic acid in it and is compatible with aluminum.
So it seems to me that would be the product to use if appearance is an issue.
Personally I think that a polyurethane sealant is stronger and probably more flexible.

Found your invitation. What would you recommend to reseal the window glass on our wrap around windows on our Argosy? The original gasket where the glass meets the frame is shot.

You can use Vulkem or Sikoflex sealer.

Vulkem is slow setting, allowing you to clean things up, slowly.

Sikoflex is fast setting. If you slip. you have but a few minutes to clean it up, maybe an hour, at best.
