Do these need fixin'?

Hi, just a couple things I had questions on. They're not really related but and i wasn't sure what else to title this.
I hope my pictures uploaded ok.

Pic. 1. This is on the top of my trailer, right before the trim that goes down the side edge.of the curved front of trailer. I only took one pic but it's the same on both sides. I figured the caulking was done this way for a reason but now I'm second guessing. Should these be caulked?

Pic 2. I opened the access panel to the outside access to fridge the other day and now it doesn't seem to want to lay flat on the left side. The bottom of the inside there is some sort of plastic so I'm hoping if any water does get in it'll just run out from the bottom and not really hurt anything. Would this be correct? If not I'm thinking an adhesive foam strip on that side?

The roof looks like it is missing some screw cover molding/trim or the one installed is not long enough, possibly slid down on the front cap. The refrigerator vent I wouldn't worry about those things never fit right.

Fridge vent should not be like that. Every one I have ever had lay flat. Is something caught in there that is holding it out?

Plastic trim has either slipped down or shrunk. In any case on the roof, some Dicor self leveling sealant should be added at the end of the aluminum strip and I would fill the open area or reposition the filler or simply buy a 100 ft of new and replace it. Take the very last screw out, put the strip in and cover the ends with sealant. Screw will keep it from slipping.

Yeah that makes sense on the trim. I'd go with the pieces being too short as they are both the same on each side and I can't see any sign of it slipping down.

Thanks, I'll do this first thing in the morning before work.
On the fridge vent there's nothing caught in there but maybe I need to play with the hose some. That may have moved out of position and now pushing out.
