2014 Salem Black Stripping on slide bottoms

The galley section if my new TT has the black stripping (the very edge) not attached in spots.
What should I use to re-attach it to the vinyl of the slideout? The other sections look like white caulk of some kind.
Thanks!

The easy way would be to glue it-and clamp it.Wait overnight and call it done.

This will be a pretty easy repair, your local Auto Parts store will have "Weather Strip Adhesive" which you can apply to the inner channel of the molding itself...This material is used for moldings just as yours.... Just remember to use it sparingly, this black colored adhesive will start to set as soon as it hits the air, don't worry , you will have time to push the molding back into place... then just keep pressing the molding onto to the body so it fits nicely, it should dry within 1/2 hour of so, depending on the outside temp.

I think I got it fixed... Picked up the weather strip adhesive as you suggested from O'Reilly
Just in time too since we got snow today! And yesterday was 70 degrees... No joke. Missouri weather is crazy...
Can't wait to try all the liquid systems out in my new TT, but really don't want to until the threat of freezing is gone for good. This winter just keeps hanging on....
Thanks for the advice!

I agree this winter will not stop it's pattern here in Virginia it was 70 yesterday and will be 75 today, and then they say snow again for Tuesday. It is supposed to be spring now. This is the coldest and most snow that I have seen here in 10 years. Some of the old timers say in my small Town that they haven't had a winter like this in 40 years. It is really starting to get old now......
