What type of Caulk to Use

Wondering what type/kind of caulk is used on the bottom of slides. Talking about where the sheet of laminate on the bottom of the slide meets the side panels. It's white, but don't think it's Dicor, seems to hard.

Thanks for the info. Just ordered a tube on ebay. The name has been changed, it's now masterseal NP1. Appears to be an excellent product.

McCoys sells it also. It's less than six bucks a tube. I understand it has a shelf life.

I can say what NOT to use, silicone! It does not adhere well to smooth surfaces, loosens over time-allowing water to leak past the loosened seal, and if it begins to loosen you can pull the entire run off at once. When it is removed it leaves a residue that requires a special cleaner to remove or nothing else will stick to those surfaces.

It sounds like you probably did not clean the surface good enough before applying the silicone
