I use Dicor self-leveling caulk. If it's built up with multiple layers, take time to use a heat gun and scraper and remove the old first.

Dicor is a great product, and will positively seal, when used according to directions.
Some folks use Eternabond tape. It comes in different widths. That Eternabond link is also their library of how to use the product.
Both have instructions for surface preparation, if the user follows them the seal is positive.
BTW, Eternabond is near impossible to remove if the surface has been properly prepped. Make sure you have it where you really want it to stay the first time applied.

NEVER,NEVER use any product containing any amount of Silicone or petroleum on a rubber roof!

The Alpha brand of self-leveling RV roof sealer is every bit as good as the Dicor product.

Roof Sealer

Thanks everyone for your suggestions..We went and bought the Dicor cleaner and sealer..We are thinking the leak coming out of the bottome of the front TV is coming from the front roof seam..I hope thats it

Check around your clearance lights, caulk if needed. A classic weak spot for leaks.

It's probably the same product with a different label as Dicor is the main reseller of Alpha roofing products to the RV industry.
