Two words in the English language will keep your RV in the best condition possible: preventive maintenance. A host of annual RV tasks are sometimes a chore but they’re usually not too difficult or time consuming. One of the easiest jobs is taking time to seal RV seams with Dicor RV Lap Sealant.
Is it time to re-seal your RV seams?
Sealing RV seams is important because water damage often happens at the corners where RV walls are joined together. Although RV walls leave the factory with sealant already applied to the seams, over time UV light and weather breaks the sealant down. This creates gaps in the corners which allow moisture to get inside. If that happens, the RV becomes a victim of fiberglass RV delamination, an unattractive defect that is impossible to fix and takes every ounce of resale value out of the unit.
The good news is that you can protect your RV from this problem if you take annual measures to re-seal the exterior seams on your walls and roof seams with Dicor Lap Sealant. But don’t head to your nearest RV repair shop to get the job done. This task is so simple, anyone can do it.
Why use Dicor instead of caulk?
Don’t reach for silicone caulk to seal your exterior seams. Although this material is waterproof, over time it dries to a hard finish and cracks. Removing it is difficult and messy.
Dicor Lap Sealant, on the other hand, never hardens even after years of ultraviolet light exposure. This seam sealing product remains flexible and water-tight over time.
The only disadvantage with Dicor is that it can get ugly and dirty. Also, after many years it has a tendency to shrink and separate. That’s OK though, nothing’s perfect.
