Most clear caulks are made with Silicone.
Silicone + Fiberglass = Oil + Water = Bad Karma.
Read my answer to this post.
The RV guy is probably thinking you'll save time and work. Yes, it's faster and easier to just squirt out some caulk. It just never lasts, and the silicone residue prevents other sealants from sticking. I pulled my leaking windows 6 years ago and applied the Butyl Tape Caulk just like in Per's post within my link. Not a single drop of leakage since.
