Finding the source of a water leak can be a difficult task. I spent several months looking for a leak because it only showed up under certain conditions. Even a very small crack in the right location can leak. I used both EternaBond tape and Dicor caulk to keep out the rain. Nothing will deteriorate your rig faster than a water leak.

I believe the original Dicor product as mentioned in your 15 year old paperwork is the self-leveling caulk. The tape product I believe is something new, and an obvious copy of the product from the company we all assumed invented it "EternaBond". Could be that Dicor has licensed the technology ....just don't know without further research.

Read this thread that suggests the Dicor tape is a cheaper inferior product when compared to EternaBond tape.

RV.Net Open Roads Forum: Eternabond tape = Dicor tape??? Camping World
Nope. The paper work I have specifically talks about tape. Even has the part numbers. Numbers are the same today.

Read the link you provided. Had You posted before I went to CW, I may have not purchased the Dicor. However, the last post in the link says, "Same stuff but made by different companies. Camping World stocked Eternabond until Dicor came out with there's. Used both, they apply, stick, and last the same. I've found no difference"

This only further adds to the confusion. This person also believes Eternabond proceeded Dicor. Not that it really matters, but I'm going to contact Dicor to try to find out how long their tape has been available.

You may be correct that Dicor Tape is not a "Johnny Come Lately".

However, my mind is made up ....don't confuse me with FACTS!
