    I’m putting new core-tec HD planks in the rear of my trailer. At the back door I install a metal track with a rubber cap.
    The rubber usually holds up for a year or less then it gets pulled up and tears.
    It doesn’t seem like the cap ( vinyl?) doesn’t hold up like it used to.
    Any time I try to remove a cap the stem rips off in the track, and you have to dig it out to put a new cap in.
    Anyways... I thought of filling the track with silicone , in hopes of of it lasting longer. Anyone ever try this?

    I just use silicone to hold down my reducers so I don’t see why filling the track with silicone wouldn’t work.

    I will do anything to avoid using cap and track. I hate that stuff and it hates me!!
