Glue is not holding on Ceiling and wall

I purchased a 2012 Forester 3011DS about a year ago and have put about 12,000 miles on it in that year. After our last trip I noticed the ceiling fabric is coming loose over the cab area of the coach. On further inspection I discovered the whole front panel of the over the cab wall is come loose. I don't know if it is the use of the 'green' glue or is this a problem with this coach. Any suggestions or experience with this problem?

We bought a 2016 evo tt. Went on a 3,800 mile trip and noticed in about 5 places the counter top laminate is coming up. I don't know if it is the new water based contact cement they are required to use or they are not letting it set long enough before applying the laminate to the top. It's back at the dealer waiting on approval from FR before they do the repairs. Hate that it takes over a month to do a few days work, especially during camping season.

Randal, are you sure it's not a bigger problem like a leak in the roof/cap junction?

We have a 2006 Lexington, ceiling in bedroom (soft) let loose. We glued. Then letting loose in living, had fixed at rally. Now coming loose again. Old glue, new glue....either way not working. We will pull and fix again with spray contact glue.

Ceiling and wall adhesive problems

No leaks or evidence of leaks. It is a one piece cap. Yes it is a padded ceiling and I made a mistake in applying 3m headliner adhesive. It is no longer sagging but I do not like the appearance and think that I will have to pull the front panel off to correctly glue it back and I will probably have to replace the whole ceiling section on the overhead to make it look like it should.

Headliner coming loose

Yep, I've got the same issue on my 2011 Georgetown 337DS. It has the "soft touch" liner that is nice in the places that haven't separated but is a constant pain pressing it back up which only holds for a short time.
I'm very curious what others have done, and what products were used to achieve success!

I would like to know how to access the ceiling behind the vinyl cloth. I thought I would use commercial roof liner glue to reattach the liner.
