Fitting / sealing roof vent

Post by Daisy »

Hi help needed I have a leaky roof vent and am wondering whether something like Plumbers Mait would make a suitable non setting bedding compound when I refit the vent, thanks
You`re only meant to blow the bloody doors

T25- you were only supposed to weld the bloody sills

Ive always used external glazing sealant. Works every time (for me) and last longer than likely ownership of camper.

Sikaflex lastomer 710, made for the job and never fails. Plumbers mate would probably do it but it’s quite ‘stiff’ and would need quite a bit of pulling down to guarantee no small gaps.
