Molding loose and falling off in some places.

Hello and good day! Another camping weekend come and gone. I noticed on this camping trip that the trim molding around the shower is coming loose and about to fall off. I also have a few other pieces outside of the washroom coming loose.

I hate to send this to the dealer if this is something easily fixed by myself. I was thinking of reattaching these with a finishing nailer and maybe even using liquid nails or silicone before I nail this back into place.

Any suggestions or lessons learned? Much appreciated!

I can't tell from the photo: Is this an area where water maybe leaking into a place where it shouldn't be? If so, taking it to the dealer would give you a 'paper trail' to have hidden water damage repaired.

Thanks for the reply, this is the molding on the sides of the shower. Sorry my first picture was sideways. On the other side of the wall is the hybrid tent. I don't believe there are any water leaks (this is a inside wall and there is nothing above it on the roof and the original nails don't feel damp or wet in hard rain), it just looks like the molding has pulled away from the wall maybe from the vibrations of towing.

Sorry for the sideways picture, I can't figure out how to rotate it

edit - rotated!

Back from the dead, this thread is describing exactly the situation I'm in but, unfortunately, there were no responses. Is there anyone that could offer input 8 years later?

OP: Did you get it fixed and is it holding up?

Thanks!

I never did figure out why this occurred, nor did I come up with a permanent fix. We eventually traded in the trailer for an Airstream. Good luck!

Sometimes, when trim pops up like that, something is pushing it or maybe the pieces is a little bit too long and is trying to bow out. A lot of times it’s worth just taking it off, cleaning both surfaces and then reinstalling it. The trim piece might need to be trimmed. Liquid nails and finishing nails or whatever adhesive seems right will usually work.

The previous picture shows a small brad that looks pulled out. No way a brad that short will hold it in place.
