"Crown molding" trim pulling away from wall

We have a 2019 Pinnacle 36 FBTS and on a recent trip noticed the "Crown molding", tje molding on the wall covering the upper accent lights in the living room area, was pulling away from the wall. It's not liked they did not using enough nails because in some areas it looked like they used a machine gun nailer.

We just got it back from the Jayco service center at Middlebury and that is an item we had them look at, among other issues. After the 150 mile trip home I noticed the scarf joint on the one wall was beginning to separate again. There is not a lot of wood behind thd trim to nail into. Has anyone else had a similar issue? What did you do to fix it? My thought is to glue th trim to glue the trim to the wall and then nail it?

That’s what I would do. I believe they use 1/8” crown molding staples, I have thought about getting a battery stapler for when I need to fix the molding.

We've had a lot of trim come loose over the last three years and I've simply glued it back in place - so far so good. I did try a nail in one of the bedroom pieces that came down, but to your point, there's not much behind it for the nail to bite into and it came down again.

Same problem on our Pinnacle. The molding is pulling away but only on the ends. Bringing it in for some other warranty work and they will fix it so it never pulls away again.

Not dry wall screws but small black Phillips head Finish screws I got at Ace hardware. Length was about 3/4 inch. Dry wall screws have too large of a head.

You could use some caulk to hold it in place. It works great for holding small stuff like that in place, but can be removed if needed easier then if it was glued. It would still take a bit of effort to remove the trim with caulk, but it wouldn't damage the area like glue would. If you use clear caulk if you get a little along the edge you won't notice it.

I had a nice Porter Cable cordless nail gun and I sold it in the garage sale when we sold the house. Dumb mistake. I have chased down a lot of loose trim and panels in our new home. I have successfully used Tightbond II glue and hand driven wire brads.

Yup, except I use small brass, usually with finish washers. In some places have installed inside cleats to attach trim or interior panels to. Screws hold well and allow for later removal for whatever reason.

Glue for fixing crown molding

Hello, Im new to the forum and this is my first post. We have had similar issues with our crown molding seperating from its substrate. We used GOOP glue to glue it back to the wall and haven't had any issues with any of the crown molding we have glued back on for over 1.5 years. Trick is to "GOOP" both surfaces and let it become tackey before pressing the crown molding against the wall. Best Regards, Marty

Hi - it was a Titebond Ultimate wood glue that I picked up at Lowes. Believe it or not we've also successfully used Elmer's on some of the vertical trim pieces.
