The seam in question is the one under the bunk and that can be seen when sitting in the cab

If you have seams opening, I'd look for structural damage due to rott on some of the wood members.

well when this seam opened up the cause was due to hitting a barn on the corner,which then the seam popped open , so i guess if its not rot it might be a broken piece of the structure. either way i guess it has to be opened up. i wish i could find a structural print of this. thanks for the reply!

Post a pic so we can see it

There is a metal trim there you need to unscrew it and remove it for now if just a corner came loose then unscrew enough to let it hand down, there is a trim that runs along the outer edge you might need to remove some of it also, some units have metal there some have wood but it all attachés the same while you have it open make sure it's dry in there. You can attach it back with staples used in a air gun, or small screws the kind that have the washer heads on them Phillips style so they are as flat as possible get some help to hold the FG back in place then put the trim back and seal it good when done with pro flex
