What is the base liquid nails is made of? Never heard of using that stuff on an RV. Most people use Dicor or Proflex. Tried the Proflex myself once, never again. Back to Dicor for me.

The most important thing it to clean all the old sealant off and clean the area to be sealed so the new sealant will stick to it. Dicor self leveling is normaly what the factory recomends.

Liquid nails is a trademark, and there are several products produced. If you are referring to the caulk it is a latex.
I also prefer Dicor.

Eternabond + Eternacaulk. The caulk on the edges is mainly for cosmetic reasons, but it does help with keeping water out before it meets the tape itself.

Eternabond tape for seals such as front and rear cap to roof, shower skylight or roof vents. Dicro for items with a large transition such as the crank up TV antenna base.

Any caulk be it Dicor or whatever may need to be renewed from time to time. Eternabond tape will outlast the roofing material.


Eternabond tape to seal the front cap to roof seam.
