Penjoe, thanks I like that idea.

What works to keep the trim in the track? A small bead of silicone inside the track then insert the trim or is there a better solution? I can push it back in place but it comes right back out.

Same thing happened to me. Until today I didn't know this was a shared problem or what caused it.

I noticed it last winter and was not able to get it back in. I decided to wait for a warm day. we had a 70 day a few weeks ago and it was much more pliable. I worked it back in with the help of a tool made of plastic.

Now I know to look for that screw at the bottom.

That's exactly the way I did it. I think it's probably cosmetic anyway.

My entire trim was painted and the stripes didn't line up. It shrunk when the weather warmed up. I pulled it out and installed new black vinyl trim. I left the bottom screw out so it could move. 25' roll costs $8.

Many RV stores carry it. Bring a sample as different sizes are available.

Looks like white and black are the choices.
