Rubber Cap/seal for all the roof screws???

On our 2004 Dolphin I noticed that there is a rubber slide/lip in cap/seal that is located just above the rail for the awnings that goes the entire length of the coach.
It looks like it was designed to form a sealed area protecting the screws that hold the fiberglass roof cap in place - (if that makes sense) My observation is that there is only a few remaining pieces (due to dry-rot I'm assuming) and a lot of screws exposed. I am concerned that this may predispose my coach to a leak???

What is this area actually called and where can i find that type of seal?

Any help on this is much appreciated as I want to replaced this ASAP and its looks like its something I can install.

thanks in advance

Eternabond makes a tape that you may want to consider.

Actually I believe its more like a rubber gasket than a tape! It looks like a something that you can lip in and slide down the track.

Google 'RV Vinal Cap' or 'RV Screw Covers' for more options.

If it's anything like my 2000, it's more of a trim cover to hide the screws, not really a seal. Discovered that my screws underneath were rusted & leaking.

It's just a trim cover - the screws are set in caulk that is under the strip and that's the leak-proofing. You can get a new rubber insert - it's a standard item in many RV stores or online RV parts places. The insert molding comes in a couple widths and various colors.
