Entegra Fiberglass Roof Sealant

Hey folks, just wanted to throw out a quick question regarding sealant for our fiberglass roofs.

Does Entegra use anything special, or will the standard Dicor 501LSW-1 do the job?

I know that Winnebago's use a silicone sealant from the factory and the aforementioned Dicor won't stick to it.

Any good recommendations?

Appreciate your feedback.

Eternabond

We let Entegra Factory do inspection and touch-up roof sealant as needed until the 2 yr warranty period was up. Partially because if any other roof issues were noted when they inspected roof for us, it would be under warranty. Sealant inspection and any sealant touch up material costs were non-warranty expense we paid which was customary and agreeable to us.

But year 3 we paid Paulís RV (Wakarusa, IN) to inspect the roof, prep, and apply Eternabond Tape to all roof seam areas. The cost was very reasonable and workmanship was just fine. It makes it pretty much ďone and doneĒ for those seams.

Brobox may have additional info, and if I recall, said he applied Eternabond Tape over the top of (not removing, just adding second layer of protection with the tape) existing factory seam sealants? And that seemed like sound advice which we had Paulís do..apply Eternabond over the top of existing factory roof sealant seams. It has held up very well. Thanks again for that tip, Chuck

There are threads on this forum with pix for other Entegra coach owners who DYI Eternabond Tape roof seams, too.

Congratulations and Safe Travels

Entegra started using the same as Winnebago uses in 2017 at least on diesel pushers. Don’t know if it’s the same on your Quest.

PJ talks about the sealant in this youtube video. Eternabond will not stick to the Nuflex 311

FWIW ...as mentioned our Eternabond (application 2018) has held tight, no issues. We are 2015 CS (thus, prior to sealant changes by Entegra).

Thanks for the video clarification, too, Magic-carpet.

Safe Travels To All

Appreciate the video. The only problem with PJ is that he sometimes assumes every Entegra is the same. He talks in another video about putting the slides out before you level. On my Qwest, that's not accurate and can cause problems if done that way.

It looks like I just need to determine if my coach is in fact using silicone. Thanks again for taking the time to post.

By the way, we're right down the road from you in Finleyville!

Nuflex RV-311 is a flowable silicone, try to crease it with your thumbnail, if it bounces back and doesn't leave a mark, it's silicone, if it's kinda mushy and a thumbnail leaves a depression it's Dicor. I suspect they have gone to 311 across the board.
