What goes in the groove of my outside vent

Hello I need to know what to put in the grooves of the outside fridge vent. Thought I had some aluminum strips but they don't seem to fit. Can anyone help with what should be there or what to use.

Should be a plastic trim, maybe elixr brand, need to measure the opening size and see what size you need

I think it is regular vinyl trim strip, such as used on the side trim on almost every travel trailer. It comes in rolls, various lengths and colors. It if flat as manufactured; you tuck it into the grooves, then it appears convex. Note: you must anchor ends with a screw as this stuff shrinks a lot when exposed to the weather. I replace some on my motorhome and where I missed anchoring the ends, it shrank about 3 to 4 inches in less than a year ( I had to replace it again)

Hi nearly all aluminum truck caps used the plastic trim you need it's curved outward and has flat edges to slide in the channels . Not sure who makes it Google should lead you to the manufacturers.
