I guess you're talking about sealing. If so, silicone is definatley the choice.

Mark & Marie,

Don't feel like you have to limit yourselves to those two choices. There are several new elastomer compounds that work even better. Just as flexible as silicone, paintable, and almost as easy to clean up as latex. Geocel is one company that makes an excellent product, actually a line of excellent products, some of which even work on wet surfaces.

Silicone caulk is never reccomended on fiberglass. It has a very limited life when applied to fiberglass and it can be hard on the finish. The products used to cure silicone caulking can damage the finish. The best choice of use on any RV is butyl caulk and a self leveling type will do a better job of getting into the cracks that you wish to seal. And butyl caulk can be shaped with a wet finger and cleaned up with water before it cures.
Good travelin! ......Kirk
