I elected to use Eternabond along all the edges in my Class C many years ago - my 91 is still leak free. When you apply eternabond pay attention to the "prep" work as it requires a clean surface to properly bond. You should remove the loose caulk ... if you elected to remove all the caulk (not mandatory) I would recommend that you use an oscillating tool with a special caulk remover blade (rounded flexible blade that isn't sharp and won't harm roof membrane).

Those that take Eternabond over the edge to the gutter - did you remove the plastic screw cover or leave it in place?

I removed it. This allows the Eternabond to also seal the screwheads that are holding the aluminum gutter/trim on.
