Caulking

I got on top of my mh saturday to check the caulking. I was surprised to find that most of the caulking on the seams had thin cracks and even bubbles that turned to holes when pressed down. The mh is only one year old. Is it normal for the caulking to crack this soon? It has been sitting out in sun all year. Finally got a rv carport last week.

Don't know if it is "normal", but probably. If you do decide to reseal, make sure you use "caulk" that is compatible with your type of roof material. A yearly inspection of roof is not a bad idea. Lot can happen in a year.

I doubt there is any "caulk" on your roof. Again as on the other forum watch this video:
