I had the same problem with my 2015 23ikss. Front bunk opened. It was held down with very little silicone. I siliconed the entire length of the tent down to the bunk. Then siliconed the white plastic channel down to cover the seam. Let it dry for a few days. Seems to be holding just fine. I taped the outside seam while the silicon was curing.

Thanks syogerst. I think I will first try to do what you did (your white channel must be the same as my brown channel). The screws, although probably more secure, make me a bit nervous.

I'll try more silicone, then snap the channel back in place (easier said than done I'm sure). If it happens again, I'll consider other options.

I was also afraid I'd screw it down to far and go right through. Good luck😊

I finally had a chance to take a closer look at my bunks. They are as others have described. The front and sides have the plastic cap fastened down with 2 or 3 self-tapping 1" screws that go through the reinforced canvas edge. The back cap (where the canvas came loose) was only tacked down in a few spots with silicone. I don't see any reason why screws weren't used all the way around.

I'm headed to the hardware store to pick up screws and silicone.

I'm still wondering what the fix from FR would be.
