Sealant/caulk for corner bead rails

What brand of caulk or sealant is used on the rails in the front rear corners? Mine are showing signs of peeling (after being repaired a only year ago).

Dicor lap sealant can be used or you can cover the seams with Eternabond tape. I personally would go with the Eternabond.

Ok thanks. I have Eternabond and thought about using it. Just not sure if I should cover the whole corner rail (rubber gasket and all) or just the edges and leave the gasket exposed (if this makes sense).

I wondered what the factory might use on those corners. Whatever it is seems to suck.

Just exactly where, and which corners are you talking about?

If you mean the vertical side wall corners, then I would say re caulk.
If you are talking about where the roof meets the front and back, then Eternabond tape would work good.
