Vinly Trim Covering door mounting screws

2014 266 RKS Jayco Eagle.
Any Jayco owners experiencing a problem with the vinyl trim, coming out of the door molding during travel down the highway?
This occurs even worse during travel in hotter weather.
If yes any recommendation to correct the problem? Replacement with the original vinyl trim does not correct the problem. This has already been done by the dealer and the problem continues. Has anyone found a substitute trim insert with a heavier duromitor or trim which would grip the molding from the inside and outside?

My 2010 still has the original vinyl trim and has never come out. I'm wondering if its thinner and has a lower duromitor and is yours white or the new black.

I have the same unit as yours, but a 2013 model year. The trim around my back door (kitchen door) does the same thing. So far, I haven't had a problem with the molding around the front (bedroom) door. I just push it back in, but I agree with Homer1959 - I think the molding is too long. When it heats up (from the sun) it wants to expand; but the screw at the bottom prevents that. So, the expansion forces it to buckle and come out of the track. I've considered removing the bottom screw, stretching the molding (cutting off the excess) and then reinstalling the screw. Glad to see it worked for Homer. Think I'll do it once the sun comes up.

Mine has always blown out. The dealer service dept. added more screws through the channel trim to help hold it in place. The tech said that that was Jayco's method of fixing the problem, but it still comes out of place at times.
