Glue gave in

Has anyone else had a problem with the glue on the battery cover step? I noticed last year the glue was running under the step, every time I picked it up I got glue on my hands. I took the step out today and cleaned the glue off of the metal step and the rubber cover and am now looking to use something to put them back together. should I use another glue or contact cement or liquid nails? Any Suggestions?

Good idea that should hold up in any kind of weather and temps.

Mine does the same thing. What did you use to clean it?

I tried some paint remover first but that didn't work real good. I happened to have some spray on gum and adhesive remover which cut through it pretty good and then I washed it off with soap and water. Getting ready to try the Auto trim adhesive now. Good luck.

Clean with acetone first.

Contact cement is as good as it gets if you follow directions

Henry, that stuff works great on that type of material as it is specially formulated to adhere the rubber to most materials. I have used 3 M brand in the past on replacing a convertable top. As for contact cement, not so sure on that. I'd stick with the glue designed for that type of application. IMO

I have gotten the mat glued back on with the spray adhesive seems to be working, the test will come after putting the step back in the coach and waiting to see what the different weather conditions do to it. So far so good.
