    Not sure if it IS Mastic but on the M/H where the different parts on the outside are joined the mastic has gone black in places and looks unsightly.:Sad:
    is there a produce I can use to cover it as I have tried to no avail to clean/remove the black which seems to have been absorbed by the mastic.

    usual remedy is to remove it and re-apply.

    you dont need to remove it between the panels...not possible anyway..., just the visible surface sealant.

    you can buy special tools to remove it. take your time and it will come off then simply reseal.

    Have you tried white spirit or turps, old plastic credit card will remove sealant easily.

    To clean the dirty sealant try neat Fenwicks Motorhome Cleaner with a tooth brush and flush off with hose ........ bit laborious but works for me :thumb:

    Soudal

    Scraped the old sealant with an old credit card and covered with Soudal fm B and Q. Really pleased with the result. Looks like a new van
