    there is a sealer I always used on the old tin roof on my motorhome, I think it was some kind of zinc stuff. stays flexible, lasts for a few years before you have to do it again. I'll look and see if I have some still around and get a name

    go to an RV place and they sell a sealant which you spray on and dries to a rubberized compound. I think it is called Stop Leak. Worked well for me on an older trailer we used to have. Best way to fix though it to take the vents out and reseal properly. Stop Leak is a lazy man's way but worked

    go to rona or hd they have a clear rubber roof sealer i used that on the 5er this spring, worked great and dries to a flexable coating, it was also on a metal roof like yours. put it on with a puddy knife or trowel after you clean with soap and water
    also rtv sealant for a caulking gun stays flexable and sticks better than silicone

    I bought some stuff from Woodys, its white stays flexable. Im sure all RV places would have it. Line X your roof would probaly cost you about $5000.00+

    Bought a gallon on White Knight RV roof sealer last week at Crappy Tire for $40. It is the white stuff that stays flexible and usually much cheaper than the RV store. They also sell smaller cans and spray as well. See link below:
