    It would be helpful to indicate the model in addition to the model # that you indicated. On our Solitude, yours may differ, TPO is the roof material installed and Dicor is approved for TPO and if I recall correctly EPDM roofing.

    Ours is an Alpha Systems roof. Alpha Systems 1021 self-leveling caulk is what I use.

    Sorry for not enough info, a new 22MLE. The Alpha System is what I was looking for, someone said the sealant is hard to find, will start looking before I need it. Probably the best thing to do, don't ya think! Thanks again, appreciate it!

    It can be found at Camping World or the Lippert Components store on Amazon.

    You probably have an Alpha Systems Superflex TPO roof. To keep everything in the good regarding warranties you will want to use Alpha Systems products only. Check your roof every 3 months and document it.

    In recent observations at non-chain RV dealership parts departments/stores near us, since Lippert acquired Alpha the accessories are showing up to compete more actively with Dicor. Literally racked in adjacent bins. Cost per tube obviously higher, but not the hidden online/shipping premium but what appears more inline with usual retail margin. One even had the new tube packaging versus the traditional Alpha.

    Thanks again for all your help folks, finally got 22MLE home about 2 weeks early. So far so good. Like it a lot. Now if the weather would just cooperate we could go camping, somewhere other then our driveway! That is life here in Mich.in early spring. It will get here soon! And by the way, ordered it on line along with the special spay lube for Schwintec slide With PDFE, dealer did not have have either one.
