Formica is what I thought he was having trouble with ???
Edging on mine is vinyl of some sort. The countertop is formica. I think the problem was with the edging.

Go with contact cement ( as someone already stated), be sure and follow the instructions. Gorilla glue may also work, I haven't used it enough to say. Good Luck.

My issue with the cabinet edging (or counter trim as I say) is that the trim/edging is either misaligned or too narrow, so it does not cover the whole height of the counter edge; thus, there is some exposed particleboard below the formica or whatever. This is true of just about every counter edge in my trailer, some worse than others, and the dealer is looking into what might be done about it.

It sounds there may have had some counter board swelling.

I've got the same in my trailer. I think the size of the molding when it makes the turn stretches out of shape and isn't wide enough to cover the edge at the turn. I hope I'm explaining it properly. It's just garbage material that was used. IMHO 😀

I should also state I'm not too concerned coming from tent camping. These trailers to me are still the best thing since sliced bread

The only fix I can think of other than replacing the molding (to use a third term!) is to seal the exposed particleboard with some kind of filler to protect the edge of the formica - because that is already getting worn in one spot on mine and a service person at the dealer volunteered that I may be getting a new countertop because of it. Not sure whether to be happy about that or not - who knows what other problems could arise during its replacement!

Pin Nailer

The 23 gauge is good because it will not split the Formica. Holes small enough to fill with crayon wax which will also take a shine. (23 gauge is same size as the needle for a B12 shot.) It will work if the glue does not. I just put Formica over the top and trim on my bar/island. The contact glue works good paint it on both pieces, wait till the glue does not stick to your fingers, (about 10 - 20 min) and then place the pieces together and press them hard.
