Sounds like a job for "Eternabond" roofing tape, which comes in 2", 4" and other size widths. I would look into buying some rolls and get to work, if you feel it is within your capabilities. Google Eternabond and see what you can do. I've had good luck with it. Otherwise, it's off to the dealer or other RV shop, before you start having leaks.

I agree fix it right away. If you get water under it a lot of damage can be done quickly. This stuff is also avalable I don't know if it's right for you or not but, here it is:

roof fixes

Good morning
Ive used the eitherbond 2 times ,has worked fine.Once got a 10 hole in kvh sat. system used it to repair on inside an out.Later I resealed whole roof with conklin acry.roof sealer.Scott at RV Roof Solutions may give a better on conkins product.They have a diy kit if I remember.Call scott for samples of product or go by his shops in calif. if your out there.Great product with flexable bonding cloth to fixes those cap and siderail areas.You remove all roof attachments then clean roof/get dried with a elect.blower.You start next with field areas such as ft/rr caps all vents flanges/tv ant plumb vent/solor panel mts/refer.flanges.Thatas ur first coat of webbin/an sealer.After thats dried overnite you do side roof rails down to where rubber roofs attached.On mine i remove the plastic screwcover and add a 1plus drip rail i bought from campin world.It was exp.but helps keep crud of side walls.When i installed the drip rail i put silcone under to protect screws from leaking. then all that was molded with fab/an sealer to make a clean finish.After field is finished uyou roll sealer on roof.I used 3 coats usein a 6 in 3/4 paint roller.takes a little time but it will pay for itself fast.Insides stay cooler on eastcoast/an cleans up with magic pads every year.Still must put a sealer on twice a year.Our roofs 12yr old no leaks going strong.Cont:scott 818-332-0645 for samp/info .Good luck rvroofingsolutions.com

One thing to remember if you do any caulking to NEVER use silicone caulking on just about any part of the RV. Silicone is one of the worst caulking's for RV's but it's usually the first thing most grab for. 3M makes a couple of marine caulks and so does Teak Decking. Eternabond is another thing that has been found to work well.
