Flex Seal vs Leak Seal

I got a free flex seal spray can at the texas nascar race and finally got the chance to try it out. It is amazing stuff. Rust-oleum makes the same thing called leak seal. Got it at home depot. In my opinion, every rv should have a can on board.

Rust Oleum leak seal

I was able to purchase white Rust Oleum Leak Seal on sale at my local Value Home Center for 9.99. It is cheaper than the original Flex seal for 12.99 at Walmart. I will use it when the weather warms up. I have one pesky small leak at the top of my awning. I've tried many things and it still leaks just enough to be a pest. I will have to carefully tape off so it doesn't get near my rubber roof. This sounds like a good product to have in the RV as it fixes a multitude of problems.

Anybody who has a leak from the slide should install externbond tape along the top inside edge of the slide. Pull the slide in, and look behind the top trim piece. There are multible sheets of metal that form the top inside edge of the slide. when the slide is out this edge is up against the seal, water can get through weep through the seams of the metal and drip inside the RV.

A few dollars for the externabond tape cheap fix.
I couldn't post where this came from originally (too old) so brought it here. Would Flex Seal Rubber Spray be worth considering? It seems it would be alot easier to get in there and spray that when the slide is in?

Thank you,
