Glue issue

Has anyone else had an issue with the glue not holding on all the fake wood tape that goes around all trim pieces?

I've had a few come loose but just glued them back on with a construction adhesive.

Check close. All of ours is coming off everywhere. Everything is going to need to be replaced. We found out they had bad glue.

Same here. Several trim pieces have come off or are loose. I have glued several and continue to glue more. The good news is they are just trim pieces so nothing is damaged when they fall off and they are an easy fix but they can get lost when they fall off. Everyone should check theirs, especially the border along the walls above the flooring.

I have used an entire bottle of contact cement so far.

Any trim I have messed with on the inside has been stapled on, i'll have to check it out.

Considering some of the highways & backroads I’ve towed my rig over the past 5+ years... I’m surprised any of the trim work is still hanging on my walls & ceiling.

Well, haven't had glue issues, but do have shrinking trim pieces! Considering how cheap they are made to keep them light, it's half expected.

The fake wood grain that is glued to our trim is so thin....reminds me of onion skins. And yes, some has already popped up, but I can't get under it to glue it back down until it tears or falls off. So cheap. So frustrating.

I am interested to know how dealers keep these RVs from falling apart while on the sales lot!

They only try to keep them less than 90 days...
