Need strong glue

I am having problems with the wall panels in my coach. Dixie RV fixed the panels that were falling away from the walls and the molding strips, but they keep falling away again. Dixie RV keeps telling me that I will have to pay to get it fixed again because the warranty has expired. Does anyone know of a strong glue that will hold the wall panels and the trim molding in place.

Most hardware stores carry construction adhesive. That's some pretty strong stuff.

If I was going to affix panelling and/or molding with adhesive, I'd use Liquid Nails Panel & Molding Adhesive. It's really inexpensive, and who knows, maybe that's what the dealer would use.

What tinman said. There are several different types of construction adhesive. Ask the people in your supply store which one will set up the fastest so you don't have to keep pressure on the panel for a long time.

I was thinking about using flexglue but have never used it. don't know if that would work good or not.

Had the same problem in my outlaw. Was fine until I waited out hurricane mathew in NC. The damp weather for three days swelled the panels and popped.
The fix was to use my Ryobi vibrator saw and cut a eighth inch off the bottom. Then pinned nail them back no glue. Been four years havenít popped since.
