Question Silver Colored Caulk

Hello all,
I was re-securing the lower front trim on my camper and needed to remove the plastic silver colored trim used on the corners (this is a big plastic molded part).
This part, along with the wheel well opening trim/skirts are sealed along the edges with a silver colored caulk.

Has anyone found a source for this? I will check with a FR dealer, but thought I would ask here also. IIRC, these trim parts were not used after 2008.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

GE (General Electric) makes a silver caulk. Used it to seal the rain guard on my wood stove chimney ( not in camper-in the house ). Found it at either Home Depot or Lowes, can't remember which. I will check & see if I still have a tube & get the info for you MOD Guy.

It is a high temp, non hardening caulk made by GE. It does remain pliable.

Thanks for the suggestions. I ended up going with DAP Dynaflex 230 Window, Door, and Trim Sealent in a Gray color from Lowe's. Ended up being a very good match. I need to work on my caulking skills tho. I think I caulked each corener 3-4 times (removing and redoing) until I was mostly happy with the way it looks.
