Roof leak

I have developed a leak or two, my question is what can I seal the roof with ? I looked at cool kote reflection coating 80. $ for 5 gallons is it the right thing to use?

Leaks could be coming from various sources. The air conditioner gaskets could need replacing, rivet seams could be leaking or rivets themselves could be loose causing leaks, or any number of places can cause leaks.

Here's one source for the air conditioner gasket.

For the seams and rivets use Captain Tolleys Creeping Crack Cure

Once you get the leaks fixed then coat your roof with paint.

I found the leak . There is an old antenna wire on the roof . Now only one left in the front over windshield it looks like it runs down the center metal square tube , now can it be marker lights or gasket around the windshield?

A leak up front like you're describing could come from the front marker lights or the windshield gasket.

Here's a link to my thread where I sealed the windshield gasket on my Argosy.
