It's where the front wall attached to the roof. What's the best way to fix this before the trailer goes under cover?

Pick up some lap sealant and just put a little of the top of it. It'll fill in the holes and make sure you don't have any water leaks.

+1

Whatever you do, DON'T put caulk/silicone on it. I recommend Dicor Self Leveling Lap Sealant.

Don't want to start a new thread, but When I was fixing the roof, i noticed that the Front Cap gel coat is discolored.

Wife and I scrubbed on this, its not dirty. This is right above the hinged window on the front cap. On the opposite side and down is another spot like this. Is this an Issue?

DW is concerned that is this a defect in the trailer... Me, i have no idea and figured someone on here has to be smarter than me.

If I haven't mentioned it before, Thanks for all the help. Everyone on here is a great resource
