Nothing recommended other keeping it clean & the joints properly sealed.

For the first time last year I tried Aerospace Protectant 303. I noticed that the roof appears to be cleaner than the same time last year, but who knows. At the very least, it gives me a kinda' warm feeling deep down in my belly.

Pretty sure they are still using Alpha systems membrane. A few years ago I made a special arrangement with a purchasing agent at SOB where I work and sold every tube of Alpha 1021 self leveling seal that I brought to the Rally. Not sure if I can make the same deal or not for this year.

You shouldn't drink it, save it for the roof!

camping world now sells Alpha caulk. It's got a different number on it but I contacted Alpha systems and was told camping world contracted for the alpha caulk but wanted it to be a different label. I was told it is the same stuff. Bought some and used it on roof. Went on and looked the same.
