After four seasons of fun out in the elements the original caulking is starting to peel off in some areas on the outside, such as around the fridge cover, water heater cover,etc. What productdo you recommend I use to re-do these and otherareas acknowledging that I'll have toscrape offthe old stuff?

Do not use the "self leveling" Dicor sealant. When used on vertical surfaces it will run.While harder to find there is Dicor sealant that is not self leveling.

I have used a high grade silacone sealant on the fiber glass. When doing the roof I use the Dicor. As you indicated make sure it is clean before appling the sealant.

Dicor comes in self-leveling and non-sag versions. It works great, and as cwit said it's a easy clean with mineral spirits. The other alternative is Proflex which is longer lasting, more flexible, but is a tad harder to work with.

Around openings and trim use Frog tape or painters blue tape to mask the area and make a stright line and even caulking line.

Crossroads recommends NOT to use silicone on the openings (although some people have had luck with it in certian climates).
