A self leveling lap sealant would be required on all but the clearance lights. I would us a silicone around the lights after thouroghly cleaning the area. There are several brands that can be used. Look on the tube to verify that it is compaitble for the fiberglass roof.

Self-leveling lap sealant is excellent to use on relatively flat surfaces as RV Wizard says.

Another good product with higher viscosity for use on curved or vertical surfaces or where you need to make a bead such as around clearance lights is Pro Flex RV Sealant. It's a little tacky and difficult to get a real smooth bead, but it adheres better for me than silicone and a perfect bead isn't really necessary way up on the roof. ProFlex is paintable and adheres well even if the joint is slightly damp or not perfectly clean. It is available in white, clear, or almond. I have used ProFlex on bare fiberglass, painted fiberglass, vinyl, ABS plastic, and metal.

If you have a Winnebago product all the sealants for your coach are listed online. My 2005's are in this document.

Most coach builders require special sealants for there products. I would look at your builders book or web site to get the proper sealant
