Angry Best caulking

I don't know which is the best caulking to use on the exterior of the trailer...but is is absolutely not SILICONE. You can not apply new caulking without 100% removal of the old. Additionally, there is no 'good solvent' on the market to remove it. Nothing, not even new silicone will adhere to the old.

Monte, welcome to FiberglassRV. I hear ya regarding silicone. Anyone owning an all molded towable is miles ahead to stay completely away from that stuff... it's the Devil's Bane! Have you read this? Silicone Remover? especially post #8 by BCDave
