I was thinking to use it around the vents on the roof when the needs arise. Stuff like that

We used it in the upstairs shower in our cabin. It worked for a while, but after a few grandkids visits it started leaking again. Maybe if it didn't have people walking on the flexible surface in the improperly installed shower it would have worked better.

I have used it for a few things.. I even used it on a very short (Less than a foot) section of sewer hose (worked well) used it to seal wires and such against moisture, Have not used it on a roof.. Damaged the windshield washer water bottle on my car.. Yup, it worked.

I'd rather depend on my roof's integrity by using proven products, not one "As seen on TV." Dicor Self-leveling caulk is a well known and widely used product. That's what I use and haven't had a leak.

Sprayed some white on my leaking RV roof. Sun chalked it up and caused it to crumble in less then 2 weeks - lousy stuff. Used the original black on my house roof 2 years ago and its still working - no leaks in a spot I couldn't get to stop leaking! But, the black is in a shady corner of the roof. I keep some handy for emergency repairs - kind of like a can of WD-40 - sometimes you need it quick.

I am considering using it on the bottom and up the walls of the battery compartment. I've prepped it and have a fresh coat of oil based enamel coverage now. I have also considered using rubber floor matting trimmed to fit.

I'd suggest a spray can of bed liner plastic coating.

I used it on a steel battery rack. I used Naval Jelly to treat the rust after steel brushing it, primed it with Rustoleum primer, then sprayed bed liner on it. It's lasted two years so far!

With all my pressure washing. The black plastic front grill on my E350 was fading so I shot it with flexiseal. Looks good. Friend used it as a quick patch on the outside of his fresh water tank while boondocking till he got home. We laughed thinking it wouldn't hold but it did! I would never use it on the roof. Dicor, alpha, eternabond,or heng's depending on your roof is all I would use. Proflex for the sides E.G. Windows and doors.

I used it on the seams of my roof before I replaced the rubber roof as an extra seal

I have the Flex Seal in white

One of my sewer hoses is a super short (like 1 foot) designed to couple extension hoses to the hole in the ground. Sealed it up like nobody's business.

The Windshield washer bottle on my car. took serious damage.. Same effect there. All good now

I bought it to use as insulation on some connections (Electrical) 2 or 3 coats is very good insulation.

So you might say I'm very happy with it. So far.
