Rear metal trim separating - pics attached

I have the camper(255RS) in storage and noticed this today. I have no idea what could have caused this? I am hoping that I can get the metal back in place and then caulk it but does this sound doable? Not knowing what happened has me worried though. Could this have happened when pushing out the rear slide?

Any help is appreciated.

What you're showing looks like the corner moulding on the camper. There's a plastic strip on the other face of the moulding that covers the screws attaching the moulding to the camper. Remove the plastic strip and see if the screws are tight, stripped, whatever. I haven't ever removed the plastic strip but have heard that you require some warming to soften it so it doesn't break.

It is indeed the rear corner molding. It runs from the top to the bottom. Thanks for the info. I have not had a chance to get a good look at it yet so I will not more later in the week.
