Loose Tape On The Undercarriage

We just purchased a Forest River Wildwood X-Lite 231RBXL the first part of the year, and we've been pretty happy so far. I'm getting ready to winterize it coming up, but I've noticed on the underside that there's a black tape that looks like it's used to help seal areas where lines run through the bottom of the trailer; it reminds me of wide black electrical tape, or black duct tape. I've noticed a couple places where the tape has come loose, or has fallen off. What type of tape should I use to replace the stuff that's come loose?

X4! Just clean up the area with some kind of cleaner so it will stick! I used brake cleaner on a rag.

My question would be why is there any tape in the first place?

Had a water leak on our camper and the dealer cut the underside to gain access to the hose fittings rather than taking it all off; guess it saved a lot of time. The Gorilla tape held for the two years we owned it.
