I agree with this wholeheartedly. Silicone caulk or such may leave behind the silicone oil which is a bear to clean up, and pretty much nothing sticks to it. When cleaning up, use every solvent you can think of, and lots of elbow grease. To seal various hardware on my Scamp
I like to use Lexel as a non-silicone alternative. It sticks to almost anything, but takes days to completely cure at room temperature.
Back on-topic: leaks
are always hard to find, it is necessary to dry up the inside as well as possible, then start tracing when it rains, sometimes I resort to a garden hose.
