roof sealer

I am New to the airstream community and do have a question and it is this I have purchased a 1975 AirSteam Argosy and the roof as we speak have no known issues and after I reviewed the roof it seams that it has never had any thing put on it for protection of leaks .
I live in the cold weather of Ohio and I would like to know this------should I seal the roof with ANYTHING?? and if so what . Any one out there please let me know .
Thanks George

George.

If it doesn't leak, leave it alone.

Unnecessary random sealing can make an Argosy look "ugly".

Hey George,

I didn't mean to randomly go about caulking.

The antenna base, the sewer vents, the A/C base, the top of the window frames
are worthy of close inspection....and caulk as necessary....a 35 year old trailer is gonna have some old dead caulk about that needs touching up a bit.
