Rain gutter issue

Has anyone see something like this on their TT? Something with tremendous force happened here. I mean, the cover there was ripped out of the anchor screws.

Has anyone repaired something like this? Thanks for your help!

Looks like the cover was just pulled up. All you need to do is squeeze it a bit to pop it back into the channel. It doesn't take a lot of force to do this.

I agree. It looks like the vinyl trim piece came loose. Same thing happened on our trailer. It is just a piece of vinyl that snaps into the metal piece that the screws are screwed into. Those screws do not hold the vinyl trim. There are small channels on each edge of the metal piece and the vinyl trim snaps into these channels and covers the screws in your photo. There may be a screw through each end of the vinyl to keep it from shifting and doing what yours looks like.

I just bought a 100 foot roll of this trim for $22. The stuff I bought was made by rvdesigns. Measure your metal trim piece. They are either 3/4 or 1.

Thank you!

Thanks for the suggestions. I was able to squeeze the cover back into the channel and stretch the material out so it is smooth again. I also covered the exposed ends with a healthy dose of outdoor silicon.

Were headed out Monday for a few days. Ill keep an eye on it during and after the trip.

In a couple years you'll be replacing that screw cover trim anyways. I'd say every 3-4 years I'm replacing a good portion of mine due to it drying out and cracking.
