Vulkem 611 vs 636

Oops. I used vulkem 611 instead of 636 to seal the new water heater on my AS. Any major problems with the substitution? It's all I could find locally.

I believe that I read somewhere that the formula for 611 works fine for an Airstream. As I recall the difference is that the texture is a little more grainey looking. That is so that it works well with masonry and looks more like grout. I have used some on my unit and sofar all is well.


Only he who attempts the ridiculous can achieve the impossble.

If you got the grainier Vulcum then keep your eye on it. I tried some and within a year it started to deteriorate. I have used Trempro 635 from Vintage Trailer Supply which leaves a slick/shiney rubbery finish.
