On my 2019 Broadway EB, there are odd bits of the wooden trim coming away and they need just sticking back down. Any recommendations as to which glue to use would be appreciated TIA. Steve

Try a hot iron with some form of protection but ask your OH first!

Thanks TW my problem is it's trim that runs down a corner where one bulkhead joins another by the bathroom door and I think getting an iron in there will be a tad tricky 😆

Had to use a hot iron on the trim that fell off the bulkhead, it worked until the internal temperature got to 40 degrees and promptly fell off again.

Auto sleeper to their credit offered to have the van for three weeks and replace the bulkhead but I think it would be the same situation once the temperature rose to 40 again, Tim at AS thinks that evo stick would do the job and will give it a go when it has the hab service in May,

Hi . My thinking is evostick as well ..might give it a try. I know that it can cause blistering on some trim types though

When the cover came away on bathroom door, I was advised by other members on here to use this Wickes Soudal Contact Adhesive.

Trim is still stuck after 2 years and we spend summer in South of France.

I would think that other outlets are available also.
