Try Sikaflex - on Amazon - black color - pretty sticky, gooey stuff ! Use but don't overuse as it is messy !

Many in the RV community use Dicor self-leveling lap sealant on around roof fans, AC units, solar wires etc… anywhere there is a potential leak or to repair an existing leak. It comes in white or black (and leveling or non self-leveling). Some say to use black only, even on a white van, as the white product gets dirty and yellows with age. I used it on my transit roof as a preventative measure to cover the the bolt hole roof caps that are on these vans.

3M 5200 is hard to beat but it is a permanent solution.

another resource - https://www.sportsmobileforum.com/fo...ons-18369.html

this is what we've used on our van because we prefer zero-to-low VOC's:
https://chemlink.com/product/m-1-uni...esive-sealant/

and where to buy - https://store.concreteexchange.com/p...dc8a3757&_ss=r

we've used chemlink M-1 to mount l-track to the penthouse roof, to seal the weld mounts (t-nuts) before coating the penthouse with monstaliner, to attach awning brackets to the body, to attach weld mounts to the penthouse for mounting lights + camera, to seal body cracks, etc.

other options in the zero-to-low VOC realm:
