Are you talking about rubber and proflex? Yes I am talking about the vertical metal strips on the four corners of my 97 holiday rambler TT. The metal corners in some spots have a gap with nothing between it and the metal framing and it is stapled. So will the proflex fill the gaps and butyl tape make the seal between metal siding and the metal strip where screws are placed?

Rideandslide,
I obtained a couple tube of proflex and want to be sure it can be used in the gaps between metal siding at the corners to seal it. Is the butyl tape need to be placed on it before screwing down the metal strip?

I woildn,t use both, the way i was going to do it was -Clean the corners thoroughly-Lay a good size bead of caulk on both sides of the corner and inside both sides of the trim- Screw them together and clean up the excess.

Remenber, i did go with the brutly tape, the final results were great, but what a total pain to work with, as i said before, if i did it again ,i'd go the caulk way.
If you use the caulk, let us know how it went.
Jim

It's hard to get sealant to fill the gaps like you need. For it, I would use the non butyl putty. It's much easier to work with than the butyl putty.

I tried the non butyl putty tape like used around the entry door but it did not make a seal properly. It is also harder than butyl tape so it dud not squeeze very well. Will try proflex to see how it does.

I replaced a proch light on front of the TT using butyl tape. I remember someone saying to put the tape in the refrigereator fow awhile. It was not so stlcky and essier to use. So i will try that next week when I pull a corner strip off.

If you've never used non butyl putty before, then it can be fun to work properly, but works very well.
