Remove and replace or just cover over

still new but learning. On top of our TT the caulk/sealant seems to be all cracked and gray and i would like to re-seal just for piece of mind. Should i remove the old stuff and replace with new or just place new over the top of it?
If remove the old, whats the best way to removve it without damaging the roof?

You should remove the old and put on new self-leveling caulk that is made for the type of roof you have. You will find it at the local RV store and sometimes Walmart has it.

A warm/hot day will help with the removal. Use a putty knife to scape the old caulk off and then clean the area where you removed it.

Some folks will remove the old caulk and then use Eternabond tape to seal the vents or whatever the caulk was sealing. Eternabond is so hard to remove that I only use in to seal seams, not vents and other items on the roof.

If using Dicor Lap sealant, clean the surface and apply over the old.
