What is the best and easiest way to remove the Dicor self leveling sealer around a fan on the fiberglass roof? I want to move the one from the kitchen to an updated fantistic fan and old one I take out to the bathroom that has the old convential one. Thanks

1" putty knife or a wood chisel turned upside down.

I told this story (it is true) around the campfire one night at the National Rally In Nashville this past June. We took our Class A motorhome down to Myaka State park and parked down near the lake. We rode the bicycles to the tree top canapy walk and returned in about two hours. When we got back I saw a few buzzards on the roof. At the time I didn't think any thing of it but upon entering the coach I heard this thing flapping in the Fantasic fan. I turned it off and saw a piece of the seal had feel into it. I went out side and climbed on the roof to correct the problem and I found that the buzzards had torn every bit of the caulking off all the seams and screw heads around the vents. I could not believe it. So when it comes time for me to reseal, I take the MH down there and leave it for a couple hours. Then all I have to do is wipe it down with denatured alcohol and recaulk!

Well it warmed up enought to work on this today and it was an easy job. The putty knife worked for a start and when you got it started it was just a matter of pulling it off. I checked with the dealer and he told me to put Dicor self leveling back on it. I just checked about a roll of white, Etherbond tape 2" X 50' was only $24.00. That will be my next step at that price. I have used the black on many of black rubber roofs and you can't beat it.

I know this is late but when I've had to remove old caulking, a heat gun on low setting and a small metal or plastic putty knife worked wonders. Excellant choice on the Eternabond tape.

I took the heat gun on the roof but found that I really did not need it. Thanks
