2008 255 GTS slide issue

We just picked up our 2008 255ds gts. The couch slide wood trim is loose on both sides what is the best way to re-attach them? looks like staples were used. Otherwise she is in great shape. What a pleasure to drive home.
I have been reading posts here for the last three weeks on what to look for.
What a great site All the folks here are such a wealth of info..
Thank you

Welcome! My first thought would be a pneumatic brad nailer (less likely to split the wood than hand nailing). It would help to see a picture!

Best regards,

If your referring to the trim that surronds the slide out, like a big picture frame, had same problem on 2 of my slides. As was mentioned, use a brad or finishing nailer with some 1 1/2 inch nails. Works perfectly and won't split the wood.
