The only thing that will stick to silicone is more silicone.
It is a temporary fix that becomes a permanent problem.
You come around my trailer with silicone and I'll get after you with a fork.
Really, there are many better caulks. The ONLY thing good about silicone is it's cheap. This is one thing you shouldn't cheap out on.
Donna, the reason I asked is because when I installed the mounting kit for the solar panel, the caulking tube that ETI supplied was all dried up so I used silicone. Fortunately, it hasn't leaked, but guess I better replace it with the good stuff. Thanks for answering!
