Previous should read 'no leak'.

Some of the bus conversion guys use a hypo-equiped glue to insert into and above the headliner -- squirt some glue and press in place.

Might work for you.

That's a common problem with Winnebago rigs; particularly in hot sunny climates. Interior temperatures in closed up rigs can get hot enough to melt the headliner adhesive.

Your best bet, is to re-heat the headliner with an iron, with a towel placed between the iron and headliner; and press it back into place.

I responded to Larry in NC about this problem. I live in NC also and we are in the process of replacing the headliner on our second Winnebago. We were told that the foam has disentegrated and can't be glued. When we cut the headliner down, we realized that indeed the foam came off with the brush of the hand. It took steel brushed and a lot of elbow grease to get the rest of it off. This is the second rig we have had that has has this problem. Good luck

This is a common problem with foam backed headliners in the South. Keep a hands off approach ressisting the urge to touch the headliner and take measures to control the heat/humidity levels in the coach to help control the speed of deterioration. They tried a one piece fabric design which works better unless one of the dividers between the four foot ceiling backer panels comes loose and then you have to slit the fabric to get to them and then put external divider strips in their place. To me the long term solution is to pull it all down and replace with an unbacked wall carpet putting new divider strips between the sections.

Regards,
