enclosed trailer roof leaking. on looking, the original grey calk is dry and cracked. the best calk I know of is marine 5200, but I'm wondering if thats overkill for sealing the aluminum sheet to the roof of my trailer .... thanks for advice.

good clear real silicone will outlive the trailer if the area is clean an prepped good.

Thanks man. My dad is rebuilding a boat at the moment, so I've got access to the 5200 .... but the stuff is so nasty to work with, I may just go with the silicone .... gonna seal it with something tomorrow night either way.
