Question Headliner separating

Coach is 13 years old an vinyl liner is pulling out from tee strips. Foam backing appears to be dried out. I assume glue has let go. No water damage evident. Does anybody have experience with this problem? Possible fixes? Also still looking for fuse panel location.

Look at the Winnebago forum. They have had multiple issues with the headliner with various solutions.
I was one of them but decided to trade in my coach rather than tackle that job again. I previously replaced the headliner on a boat I owned and swore I would not ever do it again. Winnebago wanted $20K to replace the headliner.

Same deal in cars. The head liners that have a foam backing dry out and turn to dust. Next thing you know its dropping. Nice having a padded headliner but you will be replacing it. Just cor to any shop that does car interiors and ask them.

Can't glue the vinyl back because the foam sheet has it normally is stuck to has perished.
Use screws with matching caps screwed through the sagged lining into the backing ply - on about 1 foot centres so it creates a cushion pattern. If pulling out at the tee joints, adding a couple of dabs of gorilla glue before tucking it back under the strip using pins to hold it in place until the glue dries. Obviously keep the glue away from the tee strip itself.
