In our last hybrid, that was starting to happen in ours. The cause was the cable was a tad too long, causing too much strain on the bunk fabric, especially in the corners. The cable in our Aerolite that supports the bunk had 3 adjustment holes on the bracket to make the cable shorter or longer. I un-bolted the bolt on the bracket inside the RV and moved it to the next hole. That raised the bunk a 1/2" but also relieved the tightness on the bunk fabric.

Now to your issue, I called Aerolite and they forwarded me to their company that makes their bunk material. For $125 they would resew the "J" channel back onto the bunk fabric. I would call whoever makes your trailer and ask who makes your bunk end fabric.

I didn't want to remove mine, as the cracking was only about 3/4". I glued mine with a automotive emblem glue or Shoe Goo that is flexible. Here is a picture of my tare, before I applied any glue. 2005 Aerolite hybrid

Thanks for the reply ! Unfortunately the maker of the trail cruiser , R vision is out of business . Also the maker of the bunk end tent is gone. Have spent hours trying to track down the "J lock " molding , to no avail yet.

In case the response didn't make it, contact Top Stitch. They replaced the entire J Lock Spline, and with shipping and handling charged me $68.50 and I am very happy with their work and service. Quick turn around too.

I just got my canvas back from the canvas store with the new J lock molding sewn in. I am having a hard time wrestling it back into the channel to re-assemble. Anyone have a tip to make that happen easier? I have it laying out in the sun now to try to soften it, but surely someone has conquered this challenge before. Any ideas?

I used a rubber mallet and a small piece of wood to drive it in. You also may want to spread the slot some with a wide blade screwdriver. Insert the J-Lock and then crimp it back down with a pair of channel lock pliers. I had to do that in some spots as well.
