2002 Dutchman repair

does anyone have an idea how to fix the exterior panel pulling away? Both front sides are doing it. Probably leaked and swelled the wood?? I have to wonder how hard and what is involved with fixing it.

You remove the rubber trim, then remove the screws that hold the metal trim in place. Screw the side panels back down using new holes then replace the trim, again using new holes. During the process while you have the panels loose see if your wood is rotten, if it is, put it back together and sell the trailer.

Capehar; Thanks for your reply. I can see the front of the supports by looking in the storage bins and I do not see any sign of them being wet. I will try what you suggest as I don't have much to lose. I will post again once I try what you suggest.
