Watch out for falling crown moldings

While riding down the road, I heard some noise in the back of the rig (the bedroom to be exact). Both the closet door molding on the top and the crown molding over the dresser both fell off. We examined them and it seems that they were put in with a little bit of glue and a couple of short brads. We were in a KOA at the time and the maintenance man gave up some gorilla glue and some long finishing nails and we put them back up and held them in place with duct tape till the glue dried. It seems to be alright now. I asked the rv tech who lives here to check out a couple of things on our rig. The air dump stopped working and I asked him which was the best motorhome to buy. His answer was NONE of them. I guess when you are going up and down bumpy roads and stuff everything will eventually loosen and fall off. I think that these manufacturers do not do the best work that they can. Happy trails to you all.

It's all about how many they can push out the door not the quality of the unit.

Yep. I just gave up being frustrated after a few months of fixing things on my brand new DP. I just kind of expect to have to fix some of the "bit of glue and short brands" workmanship when it comes apart... and I put it back together the way it should have been done in the first place.

You're right though, about how hard on these rigs it is to go bouncing down the highway all the time. We're probably lucky that even more stuff doesn't come apart and more often.

Best of luck.
