I actually just completely repaired that slideout section..... I bought used and the previous owner ripped the keder (which is different on the slideout than it is on the bunk ends)
It was repaired with some crappy pleather fabric and a TON of velcro stuck on to the fabric and body so it would "stay". There was no way that was holding in a bad wind. I got such a great deal I didn't worry about it and knew I would fix it later.
In the end I bought the plastic piece from Forest River, the fabric Keder from T J Snuggles (the tent manufacturer for FR) and re-sewed on the keder by hand.... thats about 4 hours I will never get back
Then I cleaned up the adhesive on the body and attached the new plastic on the body. There are probably 5 or 6 screws in it now. You can screw in the same as the bunk ends just be more carefull because its screwing in to a softer material. If it keeps coming out, buy the plastic again its just as cheap as the bunk ends just a different length and it will be tight again.
I would wager that the tent has been pulled a few times when closing because the slide out fabric was not "ballooned" out and it caught the bed rails and pulled the ends.
