Molding on the side of 2 slides pulled apart!!

Molding has pulled away on both sides and needs to be re secured. The staples pulled away. A few of the experts on here may be able to give me a suggestion! My thoughts are wood glue, small screws or re staple! Not sure how to do the staple solution or what I would need. Model 8528 IKWS!!!

I don't think i would use the wood glue but that just me. The last one I fixed I used a pin nailer and angled the nails to hold better. small screws may also work and paint the heads to match the wood.

Can you post a picture of the problem? It will help us identify the correct method of re-securing the trim.

If it's just appearance trim then some narrow crown staples would do the job. You can find those at Harbor Freight. If it's the inside frame around the slide, then you need something more robust to hold it on.

I used a 18 gauge brad nailer to put my trim back up got it on Amazon for $29 ....use 1 inch nails you will need a 100 psi compressor also used 2 or 3 “dots” of adhesive to help keep it there.. I am assuming you’re talking about the inside

Had same problem with corner moldings on our Rockwood 2608ws stables pulled out. Had the moldings testable at international rally new stables came out again by the time we got home. So I super glued each stable and pushed back in holes and haven't had the problem in two years and 15000 miles of driving around country. Good Luck with what you decide to use. The best way to fix it is do it your self is my Moro when possible.

Had issue with molding on floor in front of 2017 Flagstaff 832OKBS. Had tech repair it with longer nails at an angle at Goshen Rally. Seems they used fasteners that where to short possibly.
