There is no real way to effect a neat repair on the original tape, without any surplus glue marks being left on the wallboards. The tape has often curled up outwards due to the extreme range of tempretures over the seasons, and cannot be flattened back into its orginal shape successfully.
We had this problem with our last caravan, a Lunar Zenith, but solved it neatly by stripping the old tape off gentilly, as to not damage the wallboard, then replacing it with some plastic D-strip. This is used widely to join panels in caravan ceilings and throughout Static caravans. It also solves the problem of mis-matched colourings if the original matching new tape is no longer available, our strip was in a neutral plain off-white colour.
It made a super neat job, and l would not hesitate to use it again on another caravan if ever l needed to. We bought ours from Don Amott Caravans workshop at Hilton in Derbyshire, its slightly wider than the original tape, which is good for covering up any unsightly left over adhesive marks from removal of the old tape that has curled away at the edges.
