Canvas coming out of track at the bottom

I was giving the 183 a thorough cleaning and saw a glint of light coming through at the back of the side bunk. There is a track where the canvas edge is wedged in, and then another plastic piece glued over locking the canvas into the track. I'm pretty sure nobody put pressure on the canvas to make it come loose. When I look there is about 6 dabs of a silicone gunk across the width of the bunk hold the top piece on. I want to try and fix it myself. All the other bunks seem to be holding on tight. What is the Roo glue? Is it silicone?

I have a 233s Roo. We had ours separate due to heat and humidity, we think. We called our service center and it was out of warranty by a month. But they told us that how they would fix it. We could either do it ourselves or have them do it. We were told put down weather proof caulking, then put the fabric back in the track, add the cap over it and then add screws thru the cap every so often. Worked out GREAT

The DAP stuff would be ok, but I always prefer 100% silicone. The stuff that tries to imitate it is inferior IMO. The real stuff is made by GE and the clear is unpaintable but the most resistant to water and cracking.

Cropper, how long were the screws? Did they go into the door? I May just try the silicone first, it's not the whole length, the left third and right few inches. The center section is still holding.

Our side bunk has this problem also. You could roll right out at the moment. We plan on just using the silicon glue. It's on the to do list before we head out camping on Sunday!

So I fixed it. It was coming out due to the tent having such a hard time making the curve around the end to side corners. I couldn't get it to stay in the track holding it in. The GE silicone wouldn't stay stuck either. I ended up putting a screw in each end.
