Caulking That Stays White

For Godís sake, Canít they make a flexible white caulk that doesnít get black after a few months? Is this too much to ask? I have tried every type of latex caulk out there and they all get black and look ugly after a few months. I donít care if it costs $20 a tube. I tried coating with Poly Glow, no good. I donít want to use silicon based. The only thing that works is painting over it and that isnít easy to get good looking results. Maybe I am anal but stay white damn it. Sorry I just came in from re-doing caulking for the umpteenth time. Thatís a full weeks job to do it right

So I found a Geocel Proflex nothing about 9000. Is that what you mean? Has mixed reviews

You don't want to use a latex based caulking on the exterior of RV's.
A great product for the exterior is Sikaflex polyurethane sealants, they are far superior to any dicor products as far as longevity and quality is concerned.
Also does maintain the white appearance

All the Dicor sealant I have used turns grey over a period of time. Maybe I don't clean it often enough!
