Ceiling joint issues

Just had my SV 301 dewinterized, and wanted to get it ready for camping. We bought it new last May, and I noticed that two of the ceiling strips that cover the joints were coming loose. Looks like they were secured with silicone calk. I glued them back using gorilla glue, but I was wondering if this is common on a new tt. There are no signs of water damage, so I don't think this was caused by water. Anyone else have this happen?

Just curious. Why didn't this post make it to the "new posts" section? This issue is not specific to only Surveyors.

but
too late to change now

this is a real common problem on older units
after a while the heat seems to shrink things

I had that happen on our last trailer when it was only a year old, it's just cosmetic but it still pssd me off that I was constantly putting them back up.
