Winnebago Sealants/Silicone
« on: October 28, 2017, 01:23:36 PM »
I have been reading posts that talk about not using silicone for a sealant. Shortly after getting our MH I ordered the Winnebago Sealants from "winnebagoparts.com" using the part numbers from the Sealant callout sheet. Three of the 4 tubes I got say Silicone on them. The 4 tubes I got are:

NuFlex 311 - Silicone - Part # 1312640301A
NuFlex 313 - Silicone - Part # 1312640403A
NuFlex 331 - Silicone - Part # 1312640502A
Manus-Bond 75-AM - Part # 07288910000

Should I use these?

I am getting ready to install fasteners for an external windshield cover and I want to seal the screw holes. I don't want to use the wrong thing.

I say use what they sent.  In spite of what some believe,  Winnebago call - out sheets for some coaches do specify silicone based sealants for some applications.

^^ What Paul said ^^ Trust what Winnebago specifies in the call-out sheets. I suspect silicon sealants have very different characteristics.

Thanks John and afchap. I was concerned because while the website is winnebagoparts.com the receipt is Mobility R.V., Inc. I was afraid the sealants I was sent might have been a substitution for a real Winnebago part. I don't want any problems down the road. I used some of the 311 when I put on some gutter extensions. I will watch it.

winnebagoparts as you have discovered is not Winnebago Industries. You can call the 'real' Winnebago parts and order directly from them or ask them to corroborate the sealants you were sent by Mobility.

FYI - I called Winnebago and was told the NuFlex sealants are the sealants they use.
