I've used Captain Tolley's Creeping Crack Cure with success on my Argosy. Here is the link

Never ask a barber if you need a haircut.

I haven't used through the roof on my AS but have on metal and shingle roofs. I used some between a decks metal roof and the house without flashing. It has Been there 3 years and is still flexible and water proof. Faces the south and the sun here at 7000 ft in western Colorado is relentless. You should be ok for a few years. And as you say it's clear so you can't even see the stuff.

I think it's always important to try out different products. I wouldn't install a new panel using something untested of course
I've always heard parabond was for small leaks and trempro635 and sikaflex for the larger leaks.I've tried the acryl-r on some seams and haven't figured that stuff out yet. I've only used it in the caulking gun form but hear the applicator method is the way to go.

I am new to the AS community. I am in the process of restoring my '75 Sovereign and battling leaks also. In addition to the AS, I am working on a 1956 Loan Star aluminum boat. The boat experts recommend a product called Gluvit for waterproofing rivets and seams. i have not used it yet, but it may work on your particular problem.

I am not sure Gluvit would be the best choice given the manufacturer's description of the product curing "hard". I would like to see a test panel before I used it like I did with Through the Roof where I saw it 2 years post application on a metal roof at the paint dealer in Lubbock that carries TTR.

I think Andy has established his credentials as an expert and someone who has given good advice regardless of his product affiliation. Of course he sells Parabond and he has years of sucsessful experience using it so I think the advice came from this rather than trying to sell a few tubes of product. I'm glad Andy is here and willing to share his valuable experience.

Your right about UV I looked up Gluvit and the description said to paint it for UV protection.

Hey, just this evening I finished doing maintenance on my 6 year old roof. I bought the AS in Feb and it is evident that it sat outside. The caulk on the top was all cracked and nasty. Someone had also done maintenance before and went wild with a caulking gun. Some caulk was nearly 2 inches thick. I did some caulk work but noticed the roof play behind the vents on the inner side. I spoke with a tech at Camping World and he recommended Sika Multi-seal Plus White Membrane Tape
for as it is neat and will move. It was expensive but I carefully ran down the sides inside the rain gutters and around items on the roof. It looks much better than it did and much more uniform in appearance. I did not have leaks but was following the maintenance as I go through the whole rig checking everything.

Thumbs up UV after the fact.....

This goes on all the roof plastic/acrylic. Plus tires and just about anything exposed to "old sol".
