With a new trailer like that, plus it has the almond color, I would call CR an ask them for some of their colored roof sealant to match. I don't know where to purchase it other then that. Maybe someone else that knows will chime in here.

ok thanks. my concern is do I use a self leveling lap sealant or proflex? im not sure of the difference? is one for seems only and the other for the flat surfaces etc. I can get proflex in almond but can only find the lap sealant in a paintable white. I was looking for a few other opinions on the matter. correction found dicor in dove probably pretty close to what is on the new reserve roof

here is a link the may help it did for me (watch the video) I will be checking my roof type before proceeding. I always like to double triple check on something before I do it even advice from the dealer in my opinion should be checked. you never know If the tech is well trained for sure. I have found that proflex sealant can only be used on a TPO type roof and dicor can be used on both TPO and EPDM type roof. please leave more feedback everyone. feel this is good info to have on the shelf. http://www.campingworld.com/shopping...nt-white/32125

That is what I use on my roof when ever I open up something, or add. The self leveling is the stuff for the roof. When ever I've used it, I make sure it's a warm day and it seems to spread and level better.
If your roof is almond color I would hold off until you can locate some.

My local Camping world had the almond self leveling in stock and matched just fine for me.

This is the response I got when I e-mailed Crossroads. Alpha Sealant. They have both Self Leveling and vertical applications. see below

Hello again, Jason!
You are looking for Alpha 1015 in beige. If you call Tiara RV Sales in Elkhart Indiana, they can order it for you. You will need primer as well. 574-266-2136 and ask for parts.
Hope this helps.

Ok that helps I will see if I can find some guess I should have email crossroads directly. my dealer wanted to give me something off the shelf and I didn't think it was right. I traveled 240 miles to Michigan to get my 33BD and could only communicate with them on the phone that is why I didn't have a good feeling about it. they had a great price on the TT but there service wasn't the best

I contacted Alpha and they told me it was OK to use Dicor on the roof since I was having problems obtaining the Alpha. I don't think it is available in almond color, though. I have used white on the roof with no problems and it does not show.

My bathroom skylight was leaking on my brand new 2013 HCT32RL. I tried caulking twice, yet it still leaked. I ended up buying some of the CLEAR spray on sealant in the can, like they sell on TV. It worked great, havent had any more leaks since. That stuff really does work. On TV, it's black, but they sell a clear version. Good Luck.

I bought a 2013 300BH and installed a remote fan this summer and couldn't find the almond self leveling caulk. Called customer service and they sent me two tubes in a couple days on the house..
