Inside Slide-out wood trim?

Hello, I have a 2019 30FE and my inner seal on my driver side slide has came off. My question is has anyone removed the wood trim on the interior of their slide. what tools did it take and how did you do it. I trired to staple it back in place with a pneumatic stapler and it was very hard to get to and it came down again. I do want to fix it permanently. Thanks

Ours were glued on, a real pain to get off.
I used liquid nails and lots of clamps, 2 yrs ago on the new trim.

Liquid nails was my go to for years but my cordless glue stick gun has taken its place.
The glue sticks USUALLY let you give the part a sharp lateral wheck and it let's loose.
Heat will usually take the part back off again if the part will take heat.

Liquid nails for a permanent mount, glue gun if you need back in there.
Gorilla brown liquid glue is a good choice also.
But
It swells like spray foam so you have to be neat
And
It forms a little ridge around narrow pieces kind of entrapping them. The ridge is good or bad dependant on need.

I used screws to secure the compressed paper trim to the inside of my slide. I found enough robertson screws left over from the factory when I bought the coach that I have a decent supply of various colors to fix things. The top piece of trim that runs from my fridge to the front was bowed out. The assembler missed a bunch of 'nails' that was supposed to secure the piece. I pre-drilled and spaced the screws about every 2 feet.

What I screwed I first dipped the screws in gorilla glue and gave them a spritz of water.
I couldn't keep a screw in it other wise.

I haven't had near enough trouble to actually replace a panel or trim yet but if I do, a little experimenting with some stain, and it's getting either real wood or pvc trim.
But
For now I have aslo just screwed or glued the pieces back on.

I have read, and until typing this had forgotten I tried it for the first time three days ago:
Spray foam is an excellent glue. I used it on aluminum skinned foam board. It really stuck the foil together well.
So messy, and like stp oil treatment, if someone somewhere in the county is using it, I'll get it on a good shirt or in my hair.
