What sealant to use on exterior of Argosy?

I have a 22' Argosy. I want to seal up all fixtures on the exterior including new and old. I have an exterior outlet, the scare light, the window frames, etc. I tried using some Trempro, but was not satisfied with the look. What are others using for this? I would prefer it to be white to match with the paint.

I have heard people using Dicor, but it comes in such small tubes. I go through the Trempro so quick.

Also, does everyone just paint over the sealant when it is time for paint? Or do you paint and then seal?

Thanks for any help!

I've used Sonolastic NP1 polyurethane sealant that my local hardware store carries. It comes in about seven different colors. I believe the "limestone" is a very close match to the Argosy paint color.

Work is never done, so take time to play!
