An odd but easy repair

So, getting ready for our first outing and while inspecting the rig I found the little corner trim pieces on the slide out were coming loose. After pulling the back one off I saw that it was only attached with double stick tape. I attempted the repair using the same material. It didnít last 50 miles. We stopped so I could remove it and repaired it with 3m marine adhesive. I do not think it will come loose again.

I am having a related issue only my trim piece actually broke. My teenage son was wheeling the recycling bin past the slide-out and "BOOM", he smashed the corner.

I need to get a replacement, probably just need to call Thor to find out what this part is. I wonder if it comes with sticker material so I can match the color scheme.

Anyone replaced one of these?

Many body shops & car dealers use Graphic,Decal,Striping companies they come by as needed or once a week and do repairs. If you have a friend working at a shop have him get you a business card.

If you go to a reputable RV dealer with a body shop they can probably get the part, if they don't already have it in stocks and do a color match off the old one. Those slide picture frames and molding are used on numerous coaches and not just by Thor.
