I am not sure if you have received you answer yet, but it is more than likely Self-leveling Dicor. You can clean the old dicor with mineral spirits anywhere you see cracks (careful not to get mineral spirits on a rubber roof if it happens to have one) after cleaning, just fill in the cracks. Here is a link to a video!

Dicor isn't bad stuff....but it doesn't last! In a couple of years, it begins to dry and crack. I have been using Dicor for years....until......I found this: Roof Sealing | Sika Corporation U.S.

I have been using this SikaFlex 715 product for about a year now, and it has NOT exhibited any of the problems found with Dicor. I haveused it with great success on metal, EPDM, TPO and fiberglass RV roofing substrates.

I would highly recommend it over Dicor!

Would you happen to know what kind of roof a 1992 Land Yacht has? It appears to be FRP (fiberglass-reinforced plastic). I didnt know if they came out with that type of roof or not and wanted to check. I am in the process of resealing and wanted to use the right/best product for the type of roof.
Thank you for your time
Richard

Maybe I'll try this product next time on my roof. I used 505UV. The product seems to work OK - but it's not self leveling, so the job looks messy.
