Ensolite Repairs

I have a 1977 Triple E Surf Side with fairly intact ensolite. It's grungy and needs a paint job, but before I do that, what is the best thing to use as tape on the seams? I read that latex caulking is the best to reseal, but the seams are taped already it just needs fixed in a few places.

I might have missed this in my search, so a link to an existing thread on taping seams and what to use would be helpful as well.

Thanks

Scamp has the original tape for sale on their website. I used it, works great.

Video How To Caulk and Paint Ensolite Seams

OK, after years of shooting 8mm and Super 8mm movie film, VHS and Hi8 videotape, and now digital video, I have finally taken the plunge and created my first ever How-To video for You Tube - How to Caulk and Paint Ensolite Seams in Vintage Fiberglass RV's!
It's a little on the long side, so feel free to fast forward through the slow bits.
Find it at https://studio.youtube.com/video/4rK.../edit/advanced.
If anyone has any suggestions for more how-to's, or any other subject for You Tube videos, please let me know. I have a couple of ideas, but they may take some time. Next one up will likely be Winterizing a 1978 Trillium Travel Trailer.
