I had pressure washed off the velcro on the outside for the screen room and instead of putting new on I used my 3M 77 spray adhesive to the back of the tape and reapplied . The velcro is now on like gang busters and has made numerous washes - the pressure wash really cleans out the hook strips that get dirty and filled with stuff .

Thanks, I'll try it and report to the thread. Have hesitated using screws, but did try a staple gun and it worked, but now sure I want holes of any size in the roof. We've heard enough about leaks, and don't want to temp the water gods.....

Kdot.. how are the small screws, in the roof panel, working out at holding the hinge cover valance?

Did you run the screws through the velcro strip.. then attach the valence to the velcro? Or just screw through the valance fabric directly to the roof panel?

What size screws work safely? Do not want a hole through to the outside.

Thank you.

We had the same problem, just on the table side. I replaced the Velcro strip and cleaned the surface thoroughly with alcohol first. It has stayed so far, but if it comes down again, I will probably go with stapling it up. I think the heat changes really are just too much for the adhesive on the Velcro. If that is our only issue I will be very happy!!!!

Poor Velcro Used in Trailer

Chuck9997. Can't tell you exactly what size screws I used, but they were long enough to get through the fabric, two layers of velcro, and the thin piece of metal on the back wall of the trailer, and wide enough to hold in place. I put the valence in place on the velcro, then carefully drilled through the whole thing until the drill popped through the wall surface. You need to run the drill slowly so as not to wrap the valence material around the drill bit. Then just screw the whole thing down until snug. I think I used about 5 or 6 self-tapping screws. Don't snug the screws down too tight or you'll strip the hole and have to drill another one. After I did this, the valence never moved again. Hope this helps.

the velcro problem is not limited to A frames, the velcro is so small and ineffective on my dinette cushions they slide all over the place.

I use this out here in Vegas with our extreme heat. 170+ inside vehicle during summers.

Works great! It holds my brake controller to the lower dash without falling off. Don't even have to use a lot- really good locking strength.

I did prep with 3m adhesive promotor. Local auto parts stores sell them. Looks just like alcohol towelettes. It makes the surface tacky.

Poor Velcro used in my Trailer does not stay!

Sorry about that. They are scotch brand all weather fasteners. All plastic interlocking teeth. They come in four inch strips and got mine at target.

Funny- I just clicked it from your post and mine and it works. Oh well
