  • Alpha Systems

Butyl tape is an essential tool for weatherproofing marine and RV components. This trimmable tape lets you easily remove excess material after sealing up vents, windows, and doors for a clean, finished edge.


Features:

  • Butyl tape functions as a gasket for a weatherproof seal when mounting RV or marine components
    • Sticks to the underside of mounting brackets and installation points before pressing into place on your RV or boat
    • Provides greater protection from the elements than using sealant alone
    • Prevents the intrusion of moisture into nail or screw holes
  • Adhesive works on most nonporous materials including roofing membranes and metal
    • Won't crack, harden, or shrink
    • Can be applied in temperatures from -5 degrees F to 120 degrees F
  • Easy to use - press tape firmly to first surface, remove backing, and then press onto second surface for an even seal
    • Trim grade tape means you can easily scrape away excess with a putty knife
    • Applies best to clean and dry surfaces
  • Made in the USA


Specs:

  • Quantity: 1 roll
  • Dimensions: 20' long x 1" wide x 3/16" thick
  • Application temperature range: -5 F - 120 F
  • Shelf life: 12 months
  • Colors may vary
  • 1-Year limited warranty


Butyl tape is used primarily as a gasket for preventing moisture from leaking into your RV around cutouts in the hull for vents, doors, windows, and wiring outlets. Butyl tape is widely used by RV manufacturers because of its high performance and durability. It does not dry out and crack over time, and its strong adhesive quality means it sticks and stays in place on smooth surfaces.


Butyl tape is most often used in conjunction with sealants to create the highest level of weatherproofing to prevent leaks and ongoing damage. It's ideal for use in areas where fixtures need to be drilled, nailed or bolted into place. The rubbery material keeps those openings sealed and free from water damage. While this is great for those who do their own repairs and upgrades, butyl tape is also good to have on hand to make temporary repairs. The tacky material can plug up any problem areas and hold strong, so you don't have to cut your trip short.

I used this butyl tape when installing 3 slide topper covers that I also purchased thru etrailer. So far so good. It seems to be working well and keeping out the moisture.

  • How To Determine The Correct Slide Out Awning Sizes For A 2018 Coachmen Leprechaun 319MB
    If you're wanting to install a slide out awning on your 2018 Coachmen Leprechaun 319MB Class C Motorhome then you'll just need to measure the slide out from the outer edge of the flange to the outer edge of the other flange. You'll also need to have 5"- 7" of clearance on both sides of the slide out to allow for enough room for the arms to retract without coming into contact with anything else. For example, the Solera RV Slide-Out Awning # LCV000182037 would fit a slide out measuring...

  • Is The Solera 18V Power RV Awning Compatible With A 2016 Fleetwood Bounder 35K Motorhome
    The Solera 18V Power RV Awning # LC729505 is designed to bolt to the side of the RV so you would be making new holes in your motorhome's walls. You'll just need to ensure that the awning arms aren't going to interfere with anything on the side of your motorhome (doors, windows, etc.). The 18' length is from the center of one arm to the center of the other arm (pictured below). The arms are approximately 3" wide so you'll want to do some measuring to ensure the arms are not going to contact...

  • Recommended Replacement For A 16 Carefree Freedom RV Awning On A 2016 Fleetwood Bounder Motorhome
    Since you have a 16' awning already I recommend the Solera 12V XL Power RV Awning # LCV000334965-362241. The arms are 72" in length so you'll want to ensure that there isn't something in the way that would interfere with mounting them to the wall of your motorhome. Overall, the installation is very easy but you'll want to have a few extra hands to help maneuver the roller around or hold the arm brackets in place while you mount them. I also recommend using some butyl tape # AL72FJ to...

  • Recommended Black Slide Topper For A 94 Flange Width Measurement
    For the 94" flange width of slide out you'll need the Solera RV Slide-Out Awning - Black # LCV000168107. You'll also need some butyl tape # AL72FJ to prevent any leakage from screwing in the mounting brackets. I've attached a video below where I'll walk you through exactly how to install your Solera Slide Out Awning.

You'll also need some butyl tape # AL72FJ to help prevent any water leaks through the mounting screws. I've attached a short video below where I'll walk you through the installation process.

  • Can The Surco Universal Exterior RV Ladder Fit The Curved Front Of A Toy Hauler Trailer
    The hinges of the Surco Universal Exterior RV Ladder w Center Hinges for Contoured Rear Wall # SP501L would allow for you to go around the front bump out but with it being so low I don't know if would be a comfortable fit. The top portion of the ladder is approximately 52-1/2" (not including the very top rails that mount to the roof) and the bottom is approximately 48" (including the bend). I recommend measuring the front before and after the bump out first to be certain of fitment. If...

  • Recommended Replacement For An Atwood GCH10A-4E RV Hot Water Heater
    The dimensions of the Atwood GCH10A-4E are 15.5" x 16" x 19.2" so I recommend the Furrion RV Tankless Water Heater - 18" x 18" Door # FR68SR to ensure that the door completely covers the cutout hole and any scuffs from the old flange. This unit is 12-5/8" L x 12-13/16" W x 19-3/16" D so you'll need to make some slight alterations to your cutout hole to fill in the gap but the performance output of this unit will be worth the work. You'll want to use some butyl tape # AL72FJ around the...

    The Go Power Eco Solar Charging System with Digital Solar Controller # 34273837 and Go Power Rigid Eclipse Solar Charging System with MPPT Solar Controller # GP97MR you referenced both will be wired directly from their controllers to the battery bank and will not be wired to an inverter first.

    We don't carry any kind of blank that could be screwed on but you could a hard plastic sheet from your local hardware store and cut it to fit over the hole and then drill out the correct sized hole for the Mighty Cord Replacement RV Power Inlet # A10-30INVP in it. with this method you could use the same screw holes that you already have as well. I recommend using some butyl tape # AL72FJ and non-sag sealant # AL28KV on the plastic blank to prevent any water from leaking in and damaging...

    I recommend installing the Optronics LED Off-Road Light Bar - 11,600 Lumens - Mixed Beam - Double Row - 50" Long Item # UCL25CB on the top or side of your trailer to provide more light. This Light bar has an easy tilting adjustment to get the perfect angle for more visibility. It has two brackets that come with bolts for you to easily attach it to the trailer wall or roof. Regardless of where you mount I do recommend using some butyl tape # AL72FJ on the brackets to ensure a watertight...

    Since the Replacement Hardware Kit for Stromberg Carlson Lend-A-Hand # 1091 is going to be mounted on a wall you would want to use non-sag sealant to prevent any water from getting in between the hardware and trailer wall. We have a variety of colors to match your trailer: White # 344270341437-1 Beige # 344270341438-1 Black # AL53KV Gray # AL33KV Almond # AL43KV I also recommend using some butyl tape # AL72FJ as this will spread through the threads of the mounting screws to form...

  • Recommended Furrion Water Heater Replacement Door For An 18" x 14-3/4" Opening
    Yes, the Furrion RV Tankless Water Heater # FR93FR is my recommendation for replacing your trailer's Atwood water heater. The door you'll need to cover your 18" x 14-3/4" opening is the Replacement Access Door for Furrion RV Tankless Water Heater - 18" x 16" # FR63FR. The mounting bracket for this replacement door will connect directly to your trailer's wall instead of the water heater, allowing you to easily cover the opening.

The only other items you'll need will be a some additional wire to run from the awning to your power source, some heat shrink butt connectors to splice your wiring together, some ring terminals or spade terminals to connector to your power source, and some butyl tape # AL72FJ and some non-sag sealant #...

  • Recommended Replacement For A Dometic CareFree Latitude Awning On A 2017 Thor Windsport 34 P
    You can definitely replace your Dometic CareFree awning with the Solera 12V XL Power RV Awning # LCV000335015-362241. You'll just want to ensure the length is correct to replace your current awning since the arms are a bit different between the two awnings. Solera awnings have vertical arms that will mount to the wall of your motorhome. The # LCV000335015-362241 has 78" long arm brackets so you'll need to ensure that these won't get in the way of anything else (windows, door handles,...

  • Recommended Powered RV Vent For A 2013 Heartland Trail Runner With A 7-1/2" Thick Roof
    Technically you could use the Ventline Ventadome Trailer Roof Vent w/ 12V Fan # V2094SP-30 or the # V2094SP-28 but the garnish wouldn't be long enough to accommodate the depth of your ceiling. The largest garnish we carry for Ventline fans is # VA0445-37 at 5-5/16" so you'd have a gap between the vent and the garnish. You'd honestly be better off with the MaxxFan Mini Plus Manual RV Roof Vent w/ 12V Fan - LED Light - Black # MA00-03851 or # MA00-03801 for white cover. These two vents...
