Slow Roof Repair?

I have a 1990 pace arrow that has a one piece fiberglass roof and aluminum cap strips on the edges. Lost of caulk, tar and who knows what that other stuff is??? I am wanting something to repair leaks but don't like the idea of epoxies because I am old and like the idea of taking my time and fixing it with out running off the roof trying to hurry. Reading all the post about different products everyone uses. Can someone give me a simple but effective product that will suet my needs.

Are you planning on removing all the existing sealant(s) so you can start over again, or are you looking for something to go over the top of it?

If you have silicone up there, you really have no choice but to remove any/all of that. Nothing will stick to it - including more silicone.

Dicor brand roof sealant, self leveling (or not). Goes in a caulk gun. Color white or off white. Available at rv stores. Clean/scrape off the old stuff, wipe off with mineral spirits, and apply.

I was going to scrap off anything I can find that is loose? I kind of liked the idea of either bond tape but its so expansive that I don't want to experiment with it to find its not going to stick to the fiberglass or aluminum/metal?

Eternabond is good stuff and will stick to anything "except silicone".
I used it on front and back fiberglass to EDPM roof seams (right over the aluminum cap strips). This was a full 2 years ago and it is still holding strong.
