Fiberglass roof maintenance

Hi all,
We just bought a 1999 Mountain Aire from Newmar. We have never had a coach with a fibreglass roof before. My husband is using the dicor LAP sealant 501 LSW that we purchased at the dealership. Apparently, the trip from Orlando to NY caused cracks to appear in the newly sealed roof. What other stuff do we have to do to properly maintain a fibreglass roof?

Dicor 501 works fine on fiberglass roofs and many coach manufacturers recommend it. If you got cracks, the fault is not the Dicor.

What sort of cracks and where? Are there actual cracks in the fiberglass or did an existing seam open up? Or maybe around a vent or a/c opening?
