Rear trim coming off

We went out to where the RV is stored today & the trim on both sides rear is coming off. Looks like it's had silicone put under it. Do I just need longer screws? Or do I need to try a different remedy?

Thank you. We put fresh silicone caulk (good from -60 to 400F and longer screws. Worked like a charm.

Well, it worked until DH didn't leave himself enough room at the pump & scraped it off. Now, I need to see if I can find replacement part.

Getting gas with RV

Our truck is 12ft. and our TT is 25ft. DH pulls into a gas station. When he is ready to leave I make sure the truck windows are down and I watch him slowly pull out. So far no damage. This can also be done as you exit your campsite. Easy enough to get back in the truck. I haven't been left behind yet.
