Since the subject of recaulking comes up quite abit on this forum, I thought that I would paste the email I just got from Lance on the subject in the space below. Lance, to their great credit, has always thoroughly and promptly answered my email questions and the following is a good example.
---------------------

Mr. (my real name)


The sealant used on your camper is called Geocell MHRV2300. You can purchase this from any Lance Dealer, part number MC114 This is a white sealant used on the exterior sides, Moldings,doors and any seams. You will also need Geocell Clear, part number MC115 this is used around your windows and any seam area needing a clear seal.

Removal of the old sealant. You will need Mineral Spirits or Naphtha to clean the sealant you will be removing. Then you will need a plastic scraper to remove the old sealant. Clean the area once again, let dry and with a regular caulking gun you can re-apply the new sealant. When applying the sealant do not use your finger to smooth out the caulk. If you must smooth out, use a piece of an ice-cube to do the re-tooling.

For your roof seams and vent areas you will need a Dicor Sealant. part number MA125 This is for the TPO Roof. Other sealants can attack and degrade your TPO roof. The Dicor Sealant is also used in a caulking gun.

If you have further questions please contact me.

Sincerely,

Doug Means

The use of a ice cube is a new one on me. I'll have to try it. Thanks for the post. Ed
