Ruth, some people (I do) put a tiny tiny tiny bit of caulking on the clear plastic cap on the side that goes up against the trailer around where the rivet goes through it - before shooting the rivet into place. Dont put to much as you do not want the caulking to seep out from under the cap - keep a cloth in hand to wipe away right away any caulking the seeps out from under the cap. Some people also put another tiny tiny dab of caulking over the rivet hole before they put they snap the white cap on. Again you dont want the caulking seeping out from the cap.
As you have figure out by now any caulking that is visible on the trailer is not a good thing
