Molding/stabilizers

Any suggestions for reattaching trim/molding that has fallen off? Glue or retac it? Also any suggestions on better stabilizers that i can change the factory ones out with? 2017 Rockwood Mini Lite 2507s. 2011 F350 6.7 Powerstroke.

Hello, I recently replaced all four of the stabilizers on my 2018 Coachmen after they basically rotted away. I went with BAL Stabilizers ( Model 2400D ), no comparison as to what came with the trailer, thicker steel, larger shaft, better coating. Even helped reduce some movement. Haven't been through a winter yet so can't say how road salt will affect. So far totally satisfied. Cheapest I found them was at Camping World for $100 ( per pair, free shipping ) Good Luck.

I bought the tool posted below for a nailing job I did in the house. It replaced my air-powered brad nailer, because getting air into the house was a pain.

It is superior to putting up trim on walls and fastening almost anything to something wood. I have found more reasons to use it since I got it.

If you don't have any use for something like this, then a little caulk or Liquid nails would do the best job.

I've used trim/finishing nails and a small tack hammer for trim. I may look into rsdata's idea though, especially since I have other Ryobi tools/batteries!

this brad nailer can push a thin brad nail and counter-sink it so that you can barely see it, and never split the trim piece ( at least I have yet to)...

don't use it often but it does a great job, and don't need to follow with a counter-sink
