Front Rubber screw covers coming off?

Has this happened to anyone else? We took our first trip this weekend with our new 2014 Tracer and on both front corners the black rubber covers that are in the vertical channel covering the screws where front fiberglass cap meets the side walls came flying off in the wind! This to me should not be normal, as this trailer is meant to be towed (which deals with wind).
I know that it could be probably be fixed by placing a small amount of silicone in the channel, but it's a NEW trailer!
Thanks

Try pushing it back in place. Could be it was never installed right and was loose.

I did push it back in the channel, but when I started towing again the wind took it right out again. I think it will need some silicone to tack it in place, but I'm going to see what the dealer says (it should be covered by warranty). I was mainly looking to find out if its a common problem or if maybe it was a defective part.
Thanks for responding!

Hopefully that will be the only problem you have with it! These units come with a lot of little bug-a-boos that have to be worked out.Congrats on the new unit!
Good luck and happy campin
