Need help - I seem to have overcleaned the bathroom

Hi all,
I have an 08 19ft int'l and was cleaning the shower after our last trip and had a weird rubbery clear strip over the caulking come off while I was scrubbing (see first photo - 2nd photo is where it was before I scrubbed it off). Also one of the "buttons" sorry don't know the technical term came off (see third and 4th photo). I'm wondering if you all can tell me what that weird strip is and if I need to fix it - also what I should use to reaffix the button?

No one would have believed I could clean too much

Appreciate any help you can offer.

2nd issue first - the button cap just presses on over the screw and on to the base under the screw. Under the screw is the base that sets into the inner rim of the top button. Mine pop off all the time. I have taken a dab of silicone and put it in the cap and then popped them on. They stay on longer but still tend to pop off eventually. There are better types in the hardware store - fairly common decorative cover for screws in wet locatins and in boating supply stores - I've replaced some in my unit that just will not hold. CHEAP

The bead of rubber looks like an applied silicone sealant that never really adheared to the bathroom finish and just peeled off - but that's a guess, never seen that before. Is there a seam there between the two panels?

The little white cap is what pops off of Scamp trailers all the time. If it doesn't snap firmly in place, put a little silicone in it to hold it on.

The rubber strip I have no idea. I don't have it in mine. It looks like the caulking in yours is intact.
