If you mean the interior stuff, I took mine down, curled it up in a 2gallon metal pail, and poured boiling water on it. Let it sit 15-20 minutes, then installed it. Again. While installing used a rubber roller to flatten Lasted about 3years

Take it off, fill the seam with Dap caulking and use a sponge to get the texture right and never have to worry about it again.

So Rick, how long will that caulking last? And Hubby wants to know why not use silicone.

Don't mess with silicone. I'd use either Dicor, Sikaflex or Proflex RV. Once you use silicone, nothing sticks to it after that - including silicone. It's extremely difficult if not impossible to remove, and it doesn't stick to certain materials.
