I just relized this morning that I have a leak right above the pasenger window. I went on-line to find a sealant and saw Proflex Brushable. It seems like it would work, just brush on clear and it can be used with a wet surface. Has anyone has any experiance with Proflex? Thank you very much for any help.

ProFlex is a good sealant. Whether you want the brushable version or the caulk in a tube depends on where the leak is. Are you sealing around a window frame on a vertical surface, on the roof or along a seam? The brushable sealers are intended primarily for horizontal surfaces, i.e. roofs.

I used the brushable to seal my skylight that had a little leak. Works great! It's pretty thick sort of like pancake syrup. It will work on verticle surfaces as long as you dont put it on to thick. Try several light coats.

I went up on the roof and found about a 12 inch long area along a strip that runs across the roof from driver side to pasenger side missing any sealant. I am assuming this is the problem area. Kind of weird I think, my motor home is only one year old. Thank you guys for the info.

Sounds like you are talking about the seal between the roof and either the front or rear cap. They normally have self-leveling caulk on those seams. It is strange that just a 12" section would be missing any sealant. It probably is the source of the leak, then the water runs inside the roof to the side where it finds it's way inside.

Before putting more sealant on, I would carefully check the caulk on the rest of the seam, particulary on each side of the gap. It the caulk is cracked/crumbling/loose or in any other way not good you will want to remove it and replace with new. You can normally get self-leveling caulk at most RV dealers.
