Replacing strip between awning and roof

We were inspecting our roof this weekend and we saw that the area between the roof and the awning was quite cracked in places. We thought it looked like a type of caulking but a neighbour said that it's really a rubber strip that covers the screws that are there and that we can buy it in rolls. He said it was really easy to replace, that it just slides right in. But he didn't know what it's called so I don't know how to order it.

Does anyone know what this is called and has anyone replaced it before? Is it as easy as he was implying it would be?
Thanks,
parkgirl

It’s called screw cover. It comes in two widths do just make sure you get the right one.

THANK YOU. That was very helpful to know both what it's called and that it is in two different sizes!

Thanks for your reply. By googling 'screw cover' I found that it is sold as 'vinyl trim insert.' Bought that exact type that you linked to only I ended up paying almost 3 times as much in Canada!
Now I just hope that replacing this will fix our major leak!

Yes but I think we must get way better quality stuff!

You may want to check for your leak. This stuff is just a cosmetic cover for that metal track. It gives it that finished look. You may want to expand on the leak.

It turns out that the screw cover was not the source of our leak, but I would not really consider that cover purely cosmetic. It covers up a row of screws that are not caulked at all and are running all along the eavestrough so they are exposed to water if they are not covered up.

I had a leak along the little gutter above the awning. The crack was hard to see, but a guy posting from Florida discussed it and I found I did have that problem. I removed all the old sealant and cleaned with isopropyl alcohol. I used a flexible caulking and then did the other side of the trailer for good measure. My little mystery leaks appear resolved.

I used "Big Stretch" on one side and "Loctite 2 in 1 Seal & Bond" on the other only because we had moved and I couldn't find the Big Stretch again.
