This plate has ruined 1000's of trailers. Remove rub rail then caulk. Check for floor and frame damage. Pull belly skins to see what is going on in there. This is the major cause of rear end separation.

I️ read here that itís best to remove the trim to seal properly. This was done a few years back. Iím thinking itís possibly one of the rub rails. Waiting for rain now and I️ did a bunch of sealing over the weekend.
Water can get through the hinge plate hinges though , if that make sense ! But just flows into the storage area. Assuming designed like this originally. Attachment 302491

Yeah, such a shame, only reason this trailer has survived is that it resided in the southern Cali desert for much of it's life. The rear flooring as survived except for the extreme outer edges. One side is showing signs of slight movement but in the scheme of things I'm not worried. I've pulled the rub-rail off and caulked. I suspect water was getting in from somewhere else too. Waiting for the next rain ☔️ now.

27' Flying Cloud Rub Rail loose.

2011 27 Flying Cloud Rub Rail coming loose on the left (Road) side.
Has anyone seen this before?
The heads of the screws popped off and the Rub Rail is pulling away from the body. Wondering if this indicates problems elsewhere or could it be from water getting behind and freezing?
