Ever thought of using urathane
Pro-form has black and gray
AUTOBODY uses this to glue your cars together
Works like a silicone but it's paintable and very strong

Donna,
Would this be the right thing to use as a seal when replacing the porch light?

i would use an epoxy to fill the hole, sand it carefully then seal it with gelcoat finish repair that you can get at any boat store, it comes in white, and a multitude of colors and you should be able to make a nearly invisible repair.

Fran, I'm not sure if I'm the Donna you're asking... but, no you don't use marine epoxy when replacing a vent, window, light, etc. It's for permanently filling holes... or filling holes that will be redrilled. If you're removing an exterior light and replacing with the same thing, use Butyl putty for a leak-free seal.

I hope this help.

Thanks Donna,
After reading through ALL the posts I sort of figured the butyl putty tape would be the better product. We got some yesterday and may try the porch light replacement this weekend.
Thanks!!
Fran

The PO of my trailer had to take the old regulator out of commission when they replaced to new style LP tanks. They simply left the old regulator where it was, firmly mounted to the shell (thus, all holes stay plugged). Maybe I'll take it off some day and plug the holes, but for now, I'm leaving it alone.
