I think most folks and myself use dicor. Comes in white and clear. There is self leveling for horizontal surfaces and the is for vertical non self leveling. I'm sure the pro's and vets will chime in with more info. Hope I helped. Cheers.

Local RV repair place uses Sikaflex. Have it on my front window and have read good reviews.

I have used sikaflex in industrial applications, sea going cargo containers to be specific, the grey color. If you get it on your hands it will take forever to come off. It seals and stays sealed but

it does not clean up easy at all.

Sikaflex makes white and clear boat versions that have very good reviews. They also make a white RV tube that I have used and cleanup is just a tad more messy than other RV stuff I have used in the past. It does take 24 hours to set up. The magic finger coated with soapy water works just fine. It is a bit more “stringy” is ya know what I mean.
