Thor ACE Bedroom Wall Panel

Not sure if itís the same in other ACE models, but my 30.2 has a bowed panel at the top of the rear wall that has popped loose due to bumps and jumps on rough roads. Thereís nothing load-bearing about it; seems to be more decorative than anything. Question: has anyone else had to fix this? If so, did you use staples/staple gun or small screws/finishing nails? It appears to attach to the rear wall and the ceiling with staples. Iíd like to fix it with something a little more substantial to hopefully prevent it from recurring; however, I donít want to do unnecessary damage to the ceiling. Thoughts and advice appreciated! Thanks yíall!

"Decorative" may be right - it hides the wires back there.

Mine had tracks on the ceiling and back wall that were stapled to the wall/ceiling. The panel just snapped into grooves on the tracks.

I had to fix my wall track last year because the Thor monkeys can't even shoot staples where they are supposed to go. I used tiny screws to attach the tracks back where they belong.

When mine came off I first tried to glue the plastic strips that hold the panel up. That did not work maybe I did not wait for the glue to set. There seems to be a lot of pressure on the plastic strips as the wood panel is bowed. Anyway I ended up using small screws to hold the panel in place.
