I used that 3m 5200 marine adhesive to seal a leaking black tank seal and i have to say it is very very good stuff......it comes in two types ( 7 day cure and i believe the other is one day cure) I used the seven day cure and also put a big glob of it on a piece of cardboard so i could do tests on it and it is much better than silicone . I still want to test out butyl caulk but haven't done so yet.

The guy assembling the new Trillium here in Calgary recommended ProflexRV. It comes in almond color, which is a good match to my Trillium.

What I am not sure about is what type of caulking should I replace it with. I'm just back from the Hardware Store and one tells me silicone, one tells me a mono ultra, one tells me silicone attracts dust and unfortunately I know only that I need an ivory color I am wondering what is the best exterior caulking I could use as I don't want to be redoing this again for quite some time. I am not sure of availability here in Canada but perhaps I can hit on something similiar to whatever is suggested. In reading past forums, people speak of butyl ?????????????? what is that.

Also I need to recaulk the windows (the glass to the aluminum frame) also, what is the best type caulking to use for that process....???????Any help is greatly appreciated...

Thanks in advance to everyone for your help...
