Problem with seal on slide out.

I have a 2017 Heartland Pioneer RV. This morning, when cleaning the top of the slide out, I noticed a rubber seal sticking out from the wiper seal (not sure what it is called). My question is, can I access the interior of the slide out to gain access to this seal and put this back in place? If so, how difficult is it to remove the interior trip. Any help or advice would be appreciated.

Kinda hard to tell what that seal looks like in your picture but most seals are somehow accessible for replacement.
Have you lifted that wiper seal and looked at where the problematic one attached?

The seal may slide through a track on the exterior and may be anchored at each end by a screw.

Yes, I tried lifting the wiper seal with the slide out only a few inches out, but was not able to see the other seal until the slide out was all the way out. I have added two other photos that might shed some light on this.

If an exterior seal, look at the ends. If interior, pull the slide in at least part way and stand on a step ladder to get a look at the ends.
