Yes, you can use Kool Seal to seal the whole thing. Probably easier than just doing eams - or fixing leaks one at a time.

As for the tub, it is difficult to say without seeing it. First problem will probably be to find a replacement - these tubs are not as well standardized as residential models. Do not expect that Gulfstream will be able to provide one - RV manufacurers do not stock vintage parts like car companies do.  You will have to judge how difficult it is to remove and to get a new one into the motorhome to replace it. Measure openings carefully - sometimes the only way to get a large iten inside is to remove a windshield.
