Advice to repair alumininum siding seam

I have a small fiver with a driverside rear seam separating and am looking for advice on the best easy way to fix it. I did have a ceiling leak a couple years ago on the other side of the camper from a leak around a vent pipe. I've since sealed that and had no more leaks that I'm aware of. This seam separation has been there for some time and may or may not be related, but it doesn't seem to be getting worse thankfully.

Any thoughts would be appreciated

I had something similar that happened when pulling out of a site and barely catching a tree on that corner. It ripped off that corner piece. I found an RV repair guy on Craigslist that fixed for me pretty cheap after sending some pics and model info.
I watched the repair which was basically just removing that trim piece, screwing the sheet metal back down and installing a new corner trim piece and re-caulking it all.
