Driving Rain - Leak...

As luck would have it, my warranty expires in 3 days and we are on the road... away from selling dealer... Yesterday we were driving / towing the trailer in the heaviest rain / wind storm that I have seen in awhile.. Last night I noticed small traces of moisture in the pass through compartment and on the a small ledge inside the front wall/bed... Not a lot but moisture. I examined the front outside of the trailer and found only one spot where excessive rain driven by high wind could push water through.. The metal panel seal / seam about 2/3 of the way up the front... Unlike the other seams, this one has excessive movement / gap when depressed.. (photo)... Question is it a good or bad practice to caulk this seam with standard white RV caulking to avoid this problem in the future??

This looks like a good area to protect with Eternabond. Looks like you have about an inch under your decal. The 2" tape would probably work better than caulking due to the excessive vibration this area would be subjected to.
