If it's a mobile home he probably has it 2-12 pitch roof I would use roll roofing instead of shingles hope this helps

There is no effective long term way to store tubes of silicon. Even unopened tubes have a finite shelf life. I have found the most effective way to store opened tubes for medium lenght time, is to allow a bit of excess to flow over the tip, and allow it to form a plug. In a few months, this plug may extend the full length of the nozzle, but you can push this out with a piece of steel rod (from the tip end). I keep my tubes of silicone and caulking in a cool dry place. I've never tried the bucket of water method, so I don't know how successful that would be.

They're not the same thing, spackle is used to fill in holes or indetations made from nails in drywall while joint compounds are used to join drywall panels together.

Some joint compounds will say that they are ready mixed so you can use those right from the bucket but if it doesn't then you'll have to mix it yourself. But don't worry its not too hard, this short video has good and easy to follow instructions.

at least 2. I would suggest to look closely after the second coat dries. if you have a smooth transition than it is fine, if not, a third thin coat should make the finished product look better
