Missing Caulk On White Hawk?

Here's a shot of the driver's side rear of our 28DSBH. Is that gap supposed to be there or is there caulk missing? The passenger side has a similar appearance.

While I agree with the first two responses that it's no big deal, it needs to be fixed by your dealer under warranty by replacing the vinyl strip and not stretching it this time when installing it and then re-caulking the ends. I would not be satisfied with just a dab of caulk to fill the holes.

That trim shrinks in cold climates. Have them send you a strip, cut to size, and insert a screw through each end into the trim to retain it. Finish with caulk over screw and trim end. No biggie.
