Fix a tent zipper

Hi, My zipper has become separated:

Is it possible to fix? I've tried with no success.

Hi and welcome to the forum!
If this zipper is sewn closed at both sides then no, it can't be fixed. It's needs to be replaced. Basically would need to be taken apart to have a new zipper inserted.
If one end is open, you can try and rezip from there, slide it down to close, then get some needle and thread and sew several stitches right above where it closes to keep it from coming apart, altho eventually it will happen again.
