ok, you have two threads going on same issue. You own a 2013 Rockwood SIG Lite 5th wheel.
Did you buy it like this or did you hit something?

Looks like you clipped something backing in.

I would just add another screw to hold the bent piece down and re-caulk with Proflex sealant.

Here is the link to black:

0 28103 Proflex RV Flexible Sealant Black 10 oz.

Unfortunately, it looks like there has been water intrusion do to failure of the caulking. The molding is screwed into the edge of the flooring/substrate and due to moisture, the edge of the floor/substrate can no longer hold the screws. To do a permanent repair, you may have to tear apart the interior in both corners, pull up carpet/lenolium, check for mold and treat or cut out the damaged area and replace. Then resecure the molding and recaulk. You can buy new molding and insert from a good camping supply outlet.

Herk, I think the pics are of the 2 rear corners so, I think it "looks" like more of a sealant/water intrusion problem.......but, don't quote me on that.

Ah, I see that now. He has a severe problem in that case.
I would make an appointment at the factory.
