Tenting separating from frame

I've got a 2008 Jayco 26L - the tenting on the front is starting to separate from the frame at the bottom on one side. It looks like a semi-transparent plastic strip has ripped. This strip is screwed into the frame at intervals, and I assume the tenting hooks into this. I want to replace the plastic strip all the way around - is this something that is more or less standard (i.e. I could procure a length at any RV store) or is this something I need to get from Jayco?
I'm assuming that the rip is the result of replacing the door a few years ago (Jayco replaced it n/c off warranty due to a leak), and the cable lengths were slightly off, thus putting more pressure on the bottom of the fabric. I've since moved the cables to the highest bolt hole, relieving the pressure.
That's the other question, is there any way to adjust the cable length, the bottom of the cable is attached inside the door, not easily accessible.
