Hi Craig... if I'm not mistaken he's refering to the use of Eternabond TAPE on the seams and not Eternabond sealant.

Yes, I was talking about the tape. I'm not aware of any Eternabond sealant. Like I said, having never used it, I don't know much about Eternabond. Only what I've read on this site.

You're right about the 5200. It's used for hull fittings below the waterline. I'm guessing your have either a Winnebago or Itasca.

That's what I was referring to as well Rick. I'm not on my roof right now, but from what I can remember, there is about a 1/8" drop from the end cap edges to the roof. I could be wrong, but I don't think EternaBond tape would seal properly....too much of a difference in the level of the two surfaces. Make sense? Not sure if I'm explaning it correctly.

I'd go out an snap a photo, but it's raining.

I paid around $100 bucks to have our coach's roof resealed about a year ago. They stripped all the old stuff off, cleaned the areas real good, and re-applied a quality sealant. This was done at every penetration except the 2 ac units. The air horns, two antennas, the sat dome, all the vents, sky light over the shower, ladder mounts, everything. I know this was done because I watched, and it took him all of an hour and 15 minutes to do.
