Help with torn siding

I recently purchased an older class C, 1988 Coachmen. There is a tear in the siding that had been repaired but has come loose. I was able to use RV Glue uder parts of tear and close it up. I was thinking of using Eternbond over tear to seal it - any comments on effectiveness of that. Also can I put small screws down tear to help hold the siding to the wood? Thanks.

What Midniteoyl said. I think the screws would be fine, just seal them with a dab of Dicor (NOT silicone <----- my personal hobbyhorse and nemesis)

Is this a full tear or a partial tear into a sheet of aluminum siding? If its a partial, use a small drill bit at the top of the tear to drill a hole to keep it from progressing with vibration.
