Not silicone , it does not last long . Also if you have old tubes of silicone it sometimes will not set up. Sikaflex has worked for me on other parts of trailers
@Wood2Sawdust is right, don't use silicone. It may be OK for a short-term fix, but you'll regret later. Silicone tends to leave a residue after removal, any other sealer may/will not adhere when you need to re-due the area.

That's what I would suggest.  It definitely won't come off!

Thanks for all the input, I went with flex seal for a temporary fix....it held up in the rain at least once now. It'll give me time to evaluate the other options and work on a more final fix!

There is rolls of tacky tape they use for sealing around skylights. I got some that was 4 inches wide and you peel the surface wax paper off and it sticks and doesn’t let go, you can purchase it at any rv parts store!

This is the way to go!

Sikaflex or marine 5200..... it'll be permanent, the 5200 is the best.

5200 takes forever to cure but its sure bulletproof once it does. Windoweld Urethane is good too. And E6000.
