Remove / Reset Fridge Vent - 2008 airstream

Long story short I need to drill out the rivets, remove my fridge vent to mess with some solar wiring.

My question is regarding resetting the existing vent. I have a little rivet gun and an assortment of rivets to mechanically fasten it back.

But with regards to sealants...

Q: Should I use a bead of Silkaflex between the vent mountain surface and the roof, then use some dicor over the top to seal the rivets from above? Or just use dicor throughout?

Thanks!

Called airstream they said use adseal to form a gasket between the fridge vent cover flange and the roof.

I think I'll do that then go over the top with dicor perhaps for redundancy.

Connected with Lewster. Adseal sucks, apparently, I'm back to using Sikaflex per my original plan
