Trim repair

The first night of camping, two pieces of trim fell off in the interior.





Must have had the pressure turned up to 11 on their brad gun. Most of the brads went completely through the trim pieces. I tried reattaching them with Liquid Nails. and, surprisingly to me, no stick.

After mulling it over, Anna dropped by a notions store and picked up some antiqued upholstery brads.







As time goes by, we'll add more of the decorative brads.

Pretty nice idea. I'm sure some folks wouldn't care for the look, but I like it.

Easiest way to repair is buy a cheap brad nailer and renail. Check pressure and adjust accordingly.

Last weekend I noticed the trim between sheets of drywall on ceiling was falling off. A little nervous about nailing them on... don't want to go through the roof with a nail. They did use 3/4 inch brads... anyone have any ideas? Thinking of Liquid nails or a good silicone adhesive.

Hi,
If you can post a picture of the area in need of repair, we can help you fix it better than new.

Drywall? When did they start putting drywall in RVs?

I've used both Contact Cement, Gorilla Glue, and Two Part Epoxy (JB Weld Clearweld) to reattach various parts of trim and the like in trailers.
The problem with brads, staples, etc is that given the light weight nature of the materials used, there often isn't much material for it to fasten to.
