Sealant for roof lights/corners etc

I've noticed that there are some areas around the windows, end caps and top lights on the outside of the motorhome that could use resealed. I'm tempted to use a clear silicone sealant but just wanted to see if there was anything else recommended. I know to use Dicor on the roof, but is there a similar product for other areas of the motorhome?

Thanks.

Clear sealant

The previous owner of my Bounder used clear silicone. It's a PITA to dig out and it doesn't last long. Not good for something that's in the sun either.

Dicor for the roof, including lights.

Thanks. I did not see any Pro Flex caulking listed at Camping World. Is there another name?

As for the Dicor, would you use the non sag sealant around windows etc?

Thanks again.

For the last 15 years I have used 100% silicone and it works well. Clean the area really well with denatured alcohol, let dry and apply the silicone making sure you fill the voids. It comes in black, gray, white, almond etc. Make sure it is the 100% silicone and not the silicone mixtures as they do not work well and are usually more expensive. To smooth use a bit of water and a drop of soap mixed in a dish, apply to finger and smooth bead if necessary. Check it every couple of years.
