I wanted to reseal the joint on my pop up trailer. What would be the
best pick from home depot for caulking? Dap with silicone outdoor or
GE silicone window and door caulking? Or is there something better?
IIRC, outfits that sell to RV trade have something special for that
sort of thing. Friend, a ham radio operator, wanted to put some holes
to feed coax in his RV. Was able to get something to make a good seal.
Liquid/gel that set up. Something more than a simple caulk, though I
would think the stuff you use for sealing shower door installations
would do the trick.
*I have been using GE silicone 2 gutter and flashing caulk lately for
electric meters and services. They usually only get one box of it at a time
at Home Depot I presume because the shelf life is not too long. It remains
pliable and is not paintable. It also does not clean up with water.

We use an RV sealant or use one of the polyurethane caulks from HD or
Lowe's. Both are much better than silicone and they are paintable when they
cure and do not attract dust and dirt like silicone.
There is a special tape for your needs. Much better and reliable than
caulk. For the life of me I can't remember the name. (I'm at work and
am blocked from searching) Search at an RV site. Be warned though, it
RV.net had some favorable discussions about it.
