Yes! Lol... Same thing mine did. Resealing the inside should solve the problem.

Yea. Id think sealing the inside only would be enough since if it can't get through the inside layer then it can't leak from the outside.

i think that just resealing the inside of the tank is all that you need. consider the trim only as bracing

Correct technically the silcone doesn't "glue" the glass together the bead that you place on the inside corners once dry actually uses the pressure of the water to create the seal and the trim holds it together.
