Best way to repair roof seam separation?

Just returned from a 10 week road trip in our Sunseeker, and while I was on the roof I noticed the stuff covering the seam where the roof appears to meet the cab has deteriorated/torn.
It's happened in a couple of spots and other areas look as if they may soon do the same.
What's the best way to take care of this? Dicor, Eternabond tape, both, something else?
Thanks in advance for any suggestions!

I would use a 6 inch wide strip of Eternabond over the top of that.

Would the Eternabond work on that dimpled fiberglass roof? Just wondering how well it would seal since the roof is not smooth.
