Question Water proof sealant - skylight

I have some cracks in the putty around the bathroom skylight up on the roof.
What is the best sealant to use to cover this.

I would clean up the loose caulk and apply Eternabond tape to the seams. If not, use Dicor self leveling caulk.

I would definitely clean it up and go the Dicor self leveling first. The tape is excellent at sealing something up, but it can be tough if you ever have to remove it.

I have used the tape and it worked out well going on 3 years with no leaks. Clean the area very well first then i used a bead of weatherproof caulking around the skylight then added the tape.

Thanks - not leaking but the tape or caulking has cracks in the center of it. I will see what they have at my local RV store.
