Water - cause for concern?

I attached two pictures. The first picture shows the general area (passenger side, cabover, underside, trim strip). The second picture shows the specific area I'm looking at. You can see a drip of water at the end of the trim strip. Water appears to be *above* the trim strip at the end. Note this corner of the camper is the low point for where it's parked. I am guessing the heavy rain we've had here dripped down the side and ran under the trim strip. I looked at the exterior wall and on the inside but don't see or feel any issues. I think I read on this forum (by Brian) that the trim strip was just for aesthetics and wasn't there to prevent water intrusion. But I wanted to get the group's thoughts.

?? I noticed mine dripping from there before. I followed it up the outside and found my gutter blocked with pine needles. I didn't notice it coming from inside.

OP here - I wanted to toss this topic back up to the top of the list - hoping some people can let me know if their Sunseekers ever have water under this trim strip?

Thanks!

Doesn't seem like a problem based on your description (dry inside) and circumstances. I probably would take out the screw and peal back the strip to see behind it. Rain on the side has to drip off somewhere and it seems to be the low point for it to drip from.
