I've had a few come apart on our fifth wheel. We have the gooseneck adapter on the unit and it locks down on the ball in the bed of the truck. So whenever a bump, rough road or the stress that's put on the camper when towing it jolts things loose and apart sometimes inside the rv. I'm just going to have to go with a different hitch system

You will need to re-glue them. Use wood glue and either large rubber bands till they set up, or buy some cheap adjustable clamps from china freight.

The interiors of RV's go through extreme temperature, humidity changes that are much greater, than what your cabinets at home would experience.

if you have a small air compressor, you can get a little nail gun. or even a Nail Gun Compressor combo for about $99. Then carry a box of 1" finishing nails with you to tack everything they failed to tack properly...... or you can get finishing wood screws and use a screw gun.

I have a 2016 - same issue. I bought a 2 pack of Irwin mini clamps at wal-mart for $7, and a tube of Gorilla Glue for $4. Came out perfect and for $11 you can fix every cabinet if you had to. Pain in the A** but the least of the problems I've had with my FR.
