RE: Caulking Roof to gutter

I had an 2001 Itasca Sunrise 30W with the fiberglass roof which was barely tucked under the metal side gutters. When inspecting it I thought it looked good....but on further exam when you pushed in on the fiberglass it was not sealed and pushed in. I ordered two tubes of the Manus Bond (a polyurethane product recomended by Winnebago at the time) from Lichtsinn RV in Forest City....ended up only using one tube and part of another for both full sides after spending a day cleaning the area before using with a can of Klean Strip Denatured Alcohol. (have to use the Manus Bond in a non-enclosed area...can be hard on breathing). This product dries with a hard surface and really sticks. I ended up using the remaining tube about four years later to seal the Carefree awning rail to the motorhome rail on my full slide on my current 2007 Monaco Monarch SFS30 SVE. Water was getting into the open design sponge rubber slide seal and rusting out the alligator style teeth that held the seal on around the slideout perimeter (metal rusting and seal failure happened twice in a three year period with the metal strip floating around on top of the slideout and the rubber sliding around with it). Second time I researched the Internet for an enclosed seal and found the ZML 6705 rubber seal with encapsulated metal from Clean Seal, Inc. It has been on with no failures since 2010. (installed for me by All Stars RV in Louviers, Colo.) I think I may have been one of the first persons to use this seal....had to order it from a second supplier...but Clean Seal did send me samples to look at before ordering. Rather wordy response but I hope this is helpful and informative. Good luck and happy travels. (
