How does one determine if, with no water showing, one has a leak around a Land Yacht window frame?  If caulking around the windows is merited, what material to use?

Does anyone have any experience with Camping World roof caulk/inspection service?  They quoted me $349 to caulk around the roof openings (I presume they also mean all screw heads, etc.) and inspect the roof.  Good deal or no?

If roof needs a new covering, what is recommended for fiberglass roofs?  Cost?

Due to the age of the coach (1990) and the frequency and intensity of rain in Florida, I am thinking that a roof inspection/fresh caulk job might be in order.

My Land Yacht had a leak by the passenger window, at least I saw water on the panel below it and the carpet. upon closer inspection it was not the window frame but a roof seam above ( I saw water when I squessed the edge of the padding above the window). In looking at the roof it was evident that some of the sealant was starting to lift a little bit.  I used a piece of patching material (can't remember the brand, but I know it was recommended here). the type I used supported appling right over the top of the existing material (no need to scrape and remove) did the trick. have not had any leaks since

;D

Thank you for you comeback.  I'll have to give my LY a more thorough exam -- I'll probably have CW do the roof seams, just because I am a newbie and don't want to run the risk of internal water damage.  $350 is not a bad price, at this point, for some peace of mind!
