whats uses for roof vent leaks

Depending on the repair Dicor and Eterna bond tape seem to be the roof and seam repair products I see on the RV forums. Silicone is not acceptable. Suggest you use the search feature for the repair you need to do. I am assuming your leak fix is an installation remove and reinstall issue.

Dicor Self leveling caulk is great for seams around openings. EternaBond tape is also great for joints and areas that need sealing. I wouldn't use a "Seen on TV Product" for MY RV. Dicor and EternaBond both have a good reputation of long lasting repairs.
Silicone isn't suggested because it WILL fail and nothing will stick or seal over the residue left by the silicone.

It depends upon what the roof is made of. I would use Dicor caulking if the roof is rubber(EDPM).

I wouldn't take a chance on that stuff! If it's one of the small vent pipes I would use the Dicor 502LSW self-leveling sealant. If it's a large opening, like a vent fan, I would use the 4" EternaBond tape.

I used liquid rubber on all of my vents and it works great, it's expensive, but it works. Liquid Roof RV Repair | Only Liquid EPDM In The World!
I also had a seam leak between the front roof cap and the rubber roof, i bought some roof sealant I bought at Camping World for a few bucks, it is so much more viscus than RTV. After it cured, I coated the rest of the seam with the liquid rubber.

Go to hardware store and get a can , not the tube, of thru the roof. Stuff is wonderful. Put on with a paint brush. It is like silicone but spreads easly. Dries clear. Used it several times even on windshield seal.
