    What type of caulk?

    What type of caulk should be used on the exterior? I know not to use silicon, but there is a siliconized caulk, an acrylic caulk, and of course the dicor self level and no sag.

    I've always used Dicor. Use the self-leveling on roof seams. The other on vertical seams.

    I understand the dicor for the roof and front and rear caps. What about the caulk that holds the rubber D seals in place, the side molding, around the tops of the windows, over the cargo doors, etc.

    Dicor non-leveling works for vertical surfaces and around windows. Iíve had good results with a caulk called BOSS 378, too, for non-roof applications.
