Weather seal fell off!

Took my 2015 Palomino Puma out this weekend and noticed the weather seal covering the corner of the front of trailer came off. It used to cover the screws from the roof to the bottom on the front cap. Is this simply called weather stripping?
Any help would be appreciated. Click image for larger version

Yea i just finished replacing mine after 3 years. It fell off the slide and the guttering. I had to remove 4 screws on the slide to replace but the screws on the roof are under eternabond now...i overlapped it a little and replaced it all down one side. The other side ternabond covers the entire seam to halfway down the gutter. I will be doing this later this year to the side I just replaced. I ran out of COVID maitainence time.

I bought this. It was a little thinner than what I pulled off. Mine is black but you can order in white as well.

Thanks! I just ordered 50ft in white. Do you have to remove a screw to do the replacement?

I replaced mine on the back last year, very easy to do. I will be replacing some more areas this year. The vinyl doesn't last long in the sun. Mine is cracking and breaking apart. Luckily it doesn't cost much and is very easy to replace.

On my slide I had to remove a screw on the ends with a plastic cap. Other than that they simply squeeze in.

For the roof you may have to peel back some dicore most likely where it disappears to get to a screw possibly but it depends on your camper. Since I had eternabond the roof seam I cut the cover short and overlapped with more eternabond.

If you have to remove dicore clean the area and reapply more dicore self leveling sealant.

I will be replacing my front left weather stripping today. I only bought 50 feet so unless it only uses 25 feet per side I will have to wait till next weekend to get the right side done.

Just replaced the weather stripping on front left side of my trailer. As some members said, it was easy. Guess what? It was super easy! I let the roll of stripping sit in the sun to soften it up and it was easily pressed into place. Will be replacing all if my weather stripping. Thanks for everyone's advice.
