What's the name of the sealant

Hey All,

We've got a Class A Vista 32K that I got on top of this past week and saw that I really need to re-seal the channel where the roof meets the sidewalls. I *thought* I had a link save in Amazon to the product that Winnebago suggests you use but when I logged into my saved items it was not there. I'm not really sure where I got the link or information (I know it was a forum) so I'm at a loss and hoping someone knows the name.

Any help would be much appreciated!

Thom

When I Google Winnebago's part number (072889-10-000) from the sealant call out sheet I get this:

Also, here's a link to Winnebago's service tips on sealing the roof joint:

You can download the Winnebago "Sealant Callout Sheet" for your specific model here;

Sealants Callout Sheets

If sounds like you are looking for the thermoplastic sealant. Never use silicone.

Here's a helpful article from a recent WIT Club Newsletter;

I used OSI QUAD clear as recommended on many rv posts with good results. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Speaking of seals, anyone know where I can find the replacements for the seals around my windows as well as the sealant that needs to be used (if any). I went to my local rv supply and they had about 50 different types of seals, from doors to windows. Anyone replaced their window seals?

Winnie has a 10 year warranty on their roof but only if you follow their maintenance schedule which for some models is 2X per year. And you have to have evidence (but it can be your own scraps of paper with dates and materials used).


With that in mind, Winnie changes their sealing procedure as often as the sealants change their formula so it's always best to contact Winnie to verify what to use.


Finally, if you're not concerned about the warranty, you could use 2" Eternabond tape run down the entire length of the roof inside the rain gutter and smoothed up onto the roof. After cleaning as much caulking out as possible. So 1" ends up inside the gutter, and 1" is attached to the roof. Since it sticks like crazy, and runs nearly the entire length of the roof, I think it's a pretty effective way of holding the roof on.



Winnie had a few months back in '06-07 I think? where they installed defective roofs that were 1/2" less wide then they needed to be so they'd easily pop out from under the caulking holding the roof into the channel (that's all that holds the edges of their roofs on, caulking). Their in warranty repair was Ebond tape. If it's good enough for them...

That's nice to know. I really don't see how you can go wrong by using Eternabond unless you have full-body paint and are concerned about appearance. Clearly this is not an issue for me and my 2002 Suncruiser.

I think most full body paint jobs end just under the roof gutter so since that's where most Ebond tape is used, not really an issue most of the time. In addition, Ebond has other colors of tape now.

I'm a big fan of Ebond...have it all over my roof...end cap seams, roof edges, around roof top devices. I wish they paid me for the advertising I do for them on forums.

Oh, I can plug my RV repair blog! I keep forgetting to do that lately. I've been writing and posting to this blog for 15 years now and I've made $100 from ads ($6.66/year), so that's not why I do it. RV roof maintenance...

I do have full-body paint so the eternabond idea is out of the question as the paint comes op over the side to the top.

For what it's worth, Eternabond comes in white, gray, black and tan.

Not to hijack but I have been thinking of going to Eternabond on our trailer's TPO roof to gutter seam as I'm tired of having to always check and/or replace the sealant. I've been wondering if the black is black throughout or is the adhesive side a different color? My concern is I don't want to see a racing stripe on the gutter side (you know that OCB thing).
