Overhang flaking

So I just bought a 2014 Coachmen Chaparral 29bhs. Brought it home and going over it I noticed that where the bottom of the overhang meets the sidewall it is flaking. I did notice the silicone right above this spot was seperated from the trim. Could this be water intrusion? See attached pics as I probably have not explained this very well.Click image for larger version

When the manufacturer paints caulking, in a short while it will crack. The sealer can move and flex but the paint cannot.
If you reseal these areas DO NOT use silicone, it has no place on an RV.
Research auto paint and bodywork sites for the correct sealant.

Mbbutler what do you mean by your statement? Is this just mainly cosmetic? Do I need to teseal the underside of the overhang by pulling the trim back and resealing it?

Sorry for the delayed response. You thinking is just painted caulking? If it is that will make things super easy to correct. What would you suggest to do about resealing the trim edges?
