I have only used the caulk gun for Dicor. As with most caulk tubes if you don't use the whole tube, make sure you use a plug to save the rest or it will harden and be worthless.

I have always used a caulk gun, even when I was an RV tech. The only time we ever used a can was when we replaced an entire rubber roof. We applied from the can for all wide edges (underneath front and rear edges) and then used a caulk gun on the top under the cap molding and on all screws.

Much easier to work with the gun.

Just my $0.02

Hello revjeffrey, our lower trim (Axis 24.1) is coming lose on 1 side. What category of dicor do we use to adhere it to the body again and then what type of dicor do we use to seal the edges together? Thanks in advance for any help you can provide. Appreciate it.

Oops sorry, I meant to pose this question to Funhog. My apologies!

Hi Tom, I actually posed my question to revJeffrey and meant to ask you. Could you please help? Thank you?
