Cool 2019 198bh Front Cap trim

Hello, 2019 198 BH front cap trim question. This has started to separate and come loose. I suspect some of the screws have backed out or perhaps not all were in there correctly to begin with. I called my dealer about pricing for trim and they insisted only way they could find out was if I took them the tt and left it there for days/weeks just to get a quote IF Gulfstream has trim? Unacceptable to me. Can't seem to find much info or even decent repair video online on how to best approach this repair? I have it waterproof taped currently but need to get this fixed. Where is a good source to get this trim? Would the RecPro roof trim with 3/4 Leg be flexible enough to follow the contours of the front cap? Any other suggestions or ideas? Here are some pictures of what I have going on.

I would call Gulf Stream and send them the pictures they may fix the problem. Looks like they did wrong in assembling the camper at the factory. Forest River has repaired their campers when they were out of warranty if there was a problem in the way they built their camper. You need to keep it dry until it's repaired you don't want to allow the lauan plywood to get wet or the insulation inside. You could use duck tape or a similar tape to keep it dry.

I've tried, they are very difficult to get ahold of. I just leave messages and nobody has yet to return my calls. I'm very disappointed in their lack of standing behind a product.
