I have a gallon can of white flex seal. Can it be used to cover the seams on my fifth wheel?

Can flex seal be used to go over the seams on the roof of my fifth wheel trailer?

I would check the can to see if it is compatible with EDPM or TPO roof material prior to using. Dicor is probably the most commonly used material.

Jim, I doubt you want to use Flex Seal; Use an RV specific product such as Dicor Self Leveling lap seal on horizontal surfaces and Dicor non-self leveling on surfaces (edges) where it might run otherwise.

I know Phil shows making a boat out of chicken wire, but honestly I wouldn't get in that boat nor would I use Flex Seal products on my rv ANYWHERE, especially the roof.

Don't know if anyone saw the commercial where Phil Swift took spray Flex-Seal and sealed a gutter? I have on at the back corner of my house and decided to give it a shot because I wanted to see how it worked. I got onto a ladder and had my lawn tractor parked about 8' down wind. The Flex-Seal didn't work and my orange lawn tractor is now permanently polka-dotted from the Flex-Seal overspray. It will wear off in a few more years hopefully.

I didn't see one with rain gutters....I thought it was used to make boats...those are the only ones I saw. Maybe it's supposed to "float" vs hold water in a gutter??

Although I have had good luck using flex seal for some things I would not trust it for your RV needs. The only time FS did not work for me was using the spray on a seeping basement wall. Went with a product made specifically for that and it worked fine. BTW spray did work for my gutter leak.
