Remember, if you see a large white rabbit go through the hatch, don't follow him...

Meddle not in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy, and taste good with ketchup.

Y'all have helped me see the glamour and intrigue angle of our Door to Nowhere.

Most RV (SOB) supply stores and some mobile home dealers also carry Sikaflex. I buy it locally from a dealer in town, and I have seen it other places too. I find that a lot of things are stock with RV's, used in SOB's and Airstreams alike, and you can get replacements easily.
