Trillium window sealant

I have recently reinstalled the windows on my 1300. The butyl rubber worked really well, but the local RV dealer recommended sealing the edge with a product called Captain PHAB white marine sealant. I am hesitant to use it as I don't know what it is. Has anyone experience with this product? Or has anyone a recommendation? I remember someone here recommending a silicone and this is not an application that needs shear strength, so the dreaded silicone might work well, but I have never had much luck applying it smoothly. Thanks.

Hi Doug, I just used exterior, printable caulk around the sides and top of the window making sure I left the bottom open for drainage should water get in. Then I painted the caulk as it attracts dirt that does not wash off.

By the way, the belly band is almost finished.

Hey Claire. Thanks, sounds like a plan. Good meeting you and Rob. Glad the belly band is working out.

I ended up using a product called ProflexRV. It looks and feels like a silicone but is a mix of thermoplastic rubber and hydrocarbon resins. Going slow I was able to lay down a finished bead in most places without tooling. Where tooling was needed I used my finger dipped in liquid detergent. I made a real mess in one spot and cleaned it immediately with paint solvent on paper towel and it came up quite nice.
