    It is time for the seams to be addressed on our 2014 Rockwood premier 2317g. I would like to go with Dicor, But they do not make it in clear. As it is a black trim and tan roof, with Clear slightly yellowed caulking on it.
    So my question is... has anyone used the Tan Dicor?
    and Has anyone used Geocel PRoflex RV??
    I would like to stay with clear.
    Thanks

    I have only used the white Dicor self leveling, Googling looks like Dicor makes some in black which should work well along the trim at least

    no clue about the other product you mention

    I went with the Geocel Proflex RV

    Removed the old caulking as best possible, cleaned with mineral spirits, let it dry.
    Taped it off, then ran a bead along the seam, went back with a soapy finger and smoothed it out. (I wore gloves to keep the stickiness off the fingers)
    I did not leave the tape on longer than an hour.
    I only attacked the top and vent, as that was the area that needed addressing.

    A few observations:
    It skins over pretty quick, about 5 minutes or so.
    It will stick to anything
    It dries clear and some find it shiny, I found it pretty clear, so much that I had to look from different angle to make sure it covered.
    It will take a second coat or touch up if needed.
    A few days of hot sunny weather softened up the old stuff pretty quick.

    I will see how it holds up in the coming seasons.
