Wood Trim

Hi, Some of the wood trim on our motor home is coming loose. Pounding back the staples does not seem to fix the problem. Is there an easy way to fix this problem that looks good? (Note: I;m not real handy.) thanks, john

glue it and clamp it-- Harbor Freight has some clamps that will do the trick-- just as good as my $25 ones.

This Glue is about as strong as you can get--

+1 on glue and clamp. 100+'s on the Gorilla glue Love that stuff. If it is a piece that you can not get a clamp on.....apply glue and get some small brads and nail the piece back in place. Countersink the brads and if you are carefull no need to fill (no one will know except you). If do want to fill the holes, get the crayon type wood filler to match at HD or lowes.

Agreed on the above posts. Also, depending on where the trim is located, you can simply use masking tape to "clamp" the piece down while the adhesive / glue sets up.
