The side panel at the nose of the trailer has pulled away from the framing. I noticed it in the rearview mirror going down the interstate, that side panel bulging out catching the wind.
I pulled it over got the panel back under the trim and kept it there with good old Duct Tape.

Now I need to repair it. What adhesive should I use to on fiberglass to metal? Also add any suggestions to making the repair and preventing it from happening again. I have resealed the whole nose already to make sure it's air/water tight.

The good news is, I only need to move it about 40 miles to next years seasonal site where it will sit for at least two years.

I would suggest a complete investigation of the frame to see if there is not other issues happening. I am not saying you have frame failure, just that there has been a lot of comments again about frame failures and this sounds from your description like it could be the case.
