Roof back edge

Hello. The rear edge of my trailer has a black seal that appears to hollow. I just noticed that one end is open exposing a 3/4 to 1 inch hole that probably extends to the other side which is caulked over. I dont recall seeing this before but it may have been this way. I assume the opening needs some caulking. Is that right? Or is the hole for air or drainage - seems unlikely to me but Id figure Id ask the experts. Thanks, Jack

Are you referring to the vinyl insert trim, that covers the screws on the metal strip? If so, that insert trim shrinks a little with cold temps, sun, and age. All it does is cover the screws, and makes it look better. A picture of it might help if it's something different that your questioning.

Thanks for the reply. Maybe that’s it. I will be taking my trailer out of storage and have a photo in the next 5 - 10 days.

Thanks!

With COVID-19 it’s been 3 months in coming but I got the cover off and reinspected the trim. Yes, that’s exactly what I have experienced. I need to get some black trim and black Dicor I think. I measured the existing trim and it appears to be 1 inch from side to side including the curved sides - I assume I’ll need 1 inch trim then.
