Dicor , has 2 different lap sealants , one ; self leveling for on the roof ;, and the other for vertical application . You want the vertical application, self leveling would run down the side of your coach.
I have the numbers somewhere , but I just got called to BBQ dinner so it'll have to be later. Yes Dear.

A better solution would be Eternabond tape. Scrape the old Dicor off and tape over what's left. Tough product. Newmar is using it on their roofs now.

I am a big fan of eternabond tape and have used a lot of it on my roof. The vertical lap joints are visible from the ground and eternabond would make lousy looking job. Dicor caulk (not self leveling) is a good choice.

This is another vote for EternaBond. It has been on my coach for 7 years. Still looks good and no problems. Consider cleaning the surface and old caulk. There is no need to remove the old caulk.

One gets only one chance to lay the tape. Consider laying a chalk line where the edge of the tape will go.
