Any tips for working with roof sealants?

I should have started this thread a few days ago. Today I replaced my OEM sewer vent cap with a cyclone type sewer vent.

I used an oscillating multi-tool to remove the old sealant and it quickly removed the old stuff. I ran into trouble when I started trying to reseal the new vent cap with Dicor.

Is there any way to do a good job with that messy gunk?

When it's warm outside if you bought self leveling dicor does a good job.

Clean the surface you are applying it to - thoroughly and let it dry. This is true with caulk or tape (Eternabond) Both work best when the surface and product is warm slightly. With tape, roll or press firmly on the entire surface (wall paper roller works great) Pay special attention to the edges of the product.

I've never used anything but Dicor on any rig I've ever owned except around the skylight and then only what was recommended. Seems Dicor is not compatible with the plastic used in some of them.

Dicor told me that the 502LSW "levels" better than the 501LSW! I have used the 502LSW and it works great! Just cut the plastic spout back where you have a large opening and don't be afraid of using too much!

the cleaning is the first step. i found goof-off is effective to remove the old dicor, in fact you even don't need to remove the old dicor completely just mop it with goof-off until it is fresh. evenly dicor the base of the cyclone, put down, screw then dicor it all around including the screw head/hole's.

Thanks! I've decided to add another layer to that vent cap. Your suggestions should help!

My suggestion; never use silicone products on a RV. It never seals well long-term. Many choose to use it because it's cheap. Use Dicor or similar products.
