Bunk Door Seals

I'm looking for recommendations on what to use to reattach the seals. This is for a 2013 Shamrock 21SS. I'm guessing a very thin double sided tape. . .

I had that happen on my new shamrock also. The seals were installed incorrectly to begin with so they leaked and after the water intrusion the seals began to pull away at the corners. I put in a warranty claim for new seals, but I had to wait several weeks for them to get sent to me. In the mean time, I reattached them with 3M double sided tape I picked up from K-marts office supply section. It seemed to work well and it held for about a month and a half before I changed the seals. They were still firmly attached when I pulled the old seals off. I cant say how long this would last as it was just a temporary fix for me until I could replace the seals.

You could also try 3M weather stripping adhesive. That would probably hold better, but I choose not to use it because it would have been much harder to clean up to attach the new seals than the double sided tape.

I had the same problem with my 2017 IKSS. I used the 3M weatherstrip adhesive and it worked great. I consider it to be a permanent repair.

The situation is now getting worse. I used the 3M tape, even though it's thicker than I wanted, but while making the repair I noticed that corner of the tent is pulling away from the wall. The tent/doors have been replaced once because the seams kept leaking so I now have a November appointment at the dealer. I've had more issues in 3 years with this unit than 12 years with a Coleman Utah. On the bright side, at least I'm retired now and have the time to waste messing with this.
