Bunk end pulling out at top

Anyone have tips on reinserting the top of the bunk end canvas back in place? We noticed the top right bunkend on our 2013 Roo 183 has come out. Not ripped just pulled out.
If itís a simple fix, looking to do it ourselves. Click image for larger version

i have done the sides and bottom, have not had an issue with the top. The sides and bottom were just held in with silicon. Ran a bead in the track, stuck the seam in and let it dry. For the side seam, I had to partially close the door to get the canvas seam in the track, then closed the door til the silicon cured. It has held. I would think the top seam is the same way.

There must be a strip of something it gets tucked into before you apply silicon?

not for the side or bottom tracks - not sure about the top track.

Just went through this exact same thing with my Roo 19. Bought it used from the dealer and it pulled away on our first trip last fall. Ours was out more than that we brought it back to the dealer and they fixed it free of charge. I wish I knew exactly what they did, but I do know they used proflex and bonded it back in place.

Would love to know what they did to fix yours. We are popping it to a place this afternoon to have a look.

Figured it was it. Only took a nice day and an exterior inspection. The canvas pushed into an exterior track, however once I saw the exterior issue, I was able to reinsert from the interior back into the track. We will silicon now that we have it back in place. Saved the trip to a dealer. Phew. All it took was a handy person and a little time.

I opened my camper up this weekend to dewinterize and clean. Took a look at the corner to see what they did. It looks like they removed the material a bit further and cleaned it throughly. Then they coated it all in proflex and stuffed it all back in where it belongs. After that, they coated the area with more proflex inside and out. That stuff dries incredibly hard and it looks to me like it's not going anywhere for a long time.

Any chance you can take a picture? I'm curious if there is something we can do to proactively keep this from becoming an issue.
