Roof leak around fan in bathroom

Roof leaks around fan in bathroom. Last trip! Notice small drips around the bathroom fan housing. I have took off the top shroud and plan to reseal around it. It looks pretty good small leak so it must be a small area. What is the proper material to seal this area? I have kitchen & bath caulk. Is the good to use? What about the spray stuff I've seen on TV that they use on that boat with the screen door in the bottom of it.

99% of RV roof fan openings will be sealed with Dicor, self leveling sealant.
"501" And that is the best sealant to reseal over the existing sealant.
You will need, mineral spirits to clean any dirt from the existing sealant , for a good bond. Just follow the directions on the tube.
$8 to 10 at most RV suppliers, while your on the roof check all seams for cracks , if you have a leak due to dried out sealant , it won't be long before you have another. Write the date of opening on the tube and don't use it if the tube sits for more than a year after opening.
Kitchen and bath , won't stand up to the drying effects of the sun.
Spray can " snake oil " may have its uses; JMHO . if it was really good , they wouldn't have to advertize so much.

Hi HuddJams,
Consider using EternaBond. I have never re-sealed any roof joint need. Always use EternaBond. Never had a problem. The stuff lasts over 10 years. Go to RV Leak Repair Tapes & Sealants | EternaBond and read about the product.

I agree with using the EternaBond! It's great stuff! If you decide to use the Dicor self-leveling sealant I would use the 502LSW instead of the 501. Dicor told me that it flows better than the 501 and it is what most professional RV techs use.

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!
