Anyone know what type of caulking is used around windows, doors, hatches, etc on the Zingers? I had a small leak at the top of the storage garage opening and wasn't sure what to use so I grabbed some clear aluminum siding and gutter silicone. Just wondering what the OEMs use.

Dicor self leveling for the roof and side seam along gutter. The factory uses Silaprene around the vertical openings like the windows, slide seals, corner's, etc.

You can get the Silaprene at Hahn Systems, 800-686-0502, in Elkhart and the Dicor from Camping World or most RV dealers.

Just a note on the use of Silaprene (you can buy ProFlex at most RV dealerships, it is the equal of Silaprene):



Be prepared to work quick and use a rag and mineral spirits to clean the area and smooth out the caulking. This stuff get's sticky quick and can goop up if you apply it thick. I cut the nozzle tip very small, just large enough to insert the metal rod to break the inner seal. Use some painter's tape and mask the lines where you want to apply the sealant. Apply the sealant, with a rag and some mineral spirits wipe the caulking line and remove the tape.



You now a factory looking job on your camper!

Anybody know if there is any difference between Silaprene and 100 % silicone?
