On the roof, most if not all manufacturers use Dicor Lap Sealant as it's much better than silicone.

On the sidewalls, Dicor can be used if it matches you color, otherwise clear silicone is less noticeable on painted rigs.

When you did the roof seams did you use 2" or 4" eternabond. I'm thinking of doing mine and I'm wondering if 2" width gives good cover.
