Airstream "trim"

I HAVE A VERY SLIGHTLY USED 2017 AIRSTREAM AND THE TRIM IS FALLING OFF! I looking for ideas and suggestions on what to use or how to keep the trim in place. It is the trim that is long and thin in a slide closest to the road. Right now it is in place with duct tape! haha! Ideas?
Thanks! An Int. Serenity.

The rub strips do indeed degrade with time. Some folks try to stick them back on. Others simply get a roll of the stuff and put it on. ( It comes with adhesive on the back ). The folks at JC replace it rather than glue it back. They certainly are not against gluing stuff in place, they do it on a bunch of things. Their claim is that re-gluing the rub strips does not tend to be a lasting fix.

The last roll I got came from OODM. They are now under new management. No idea how their parts operation is doing these days. Woodlawn Airstream seems to be the place most are ordering parts from these days.
