I know this has probably been covered somewhere already, but just in case, I though I'd post this.

We're currently living in our RV in Palm Harbor Fl, while waiting for houses to close. Our Pace Arrow is a 2005. I've had to replace two skylights in the 5yrs we've owned it, and used a combination of Dicor sealant/caulk and Eternabond tape.
A few weeks ago we got hit with some VERY heavy rainfall, lasted on and off for about 6hrs. I discovered a small leak in the kitchen, near a fan.

The next day, while dry and sunny, I climbed up on top for a look-see.

I examined all of the "pass-throughs" on the roof, and found that in many places, the older Eternabond tape had some very small cracks in it. Maybe the name should be "FairlyLongbond" instead of "Eterna"?

Anyway, I headed for Home Depot and grabbed two cans of white FlexSeal, and gave every seam on the roof two coats, about 4-5hrs apart.

We've had two heavy rainstorms since, and not a drop or drip inside the coach.
I'll keep checking on it every month or so, but so far, it seems that FlexSeal might get added to my maintenance schedule. A lot cheaper and a lot easier to apply than the traditional sealants.

Keep a close eye on the " FlexSeal's" interaction with other products all ready used on your roof , some product can dry & harden the rubber membrane , resulting in splits.

Flex Seal may not be a perfect product, but it sure does fix a lot of things!

Since I already now have to keep an eye on the other products that are designed to be there and are starting to fail, keeping on eye on the flexseal won't be an issue
