Loose wall panels

I have several places in my MH where the wall panels have come loose and are either protruding1/4 inch or so and other places where they are bouncy - I can push them in with my hand until they rest on the frame. How were the panels originaly attached and how do I fix them?
Thanks in advance.

Inside walls loose is good compared to outside.. They were probably glued. I would use a small decorative screw, take time to find studding.

Since you have a Holiday Rambler you have aluminum framing and not studs screws will be more difficult. I had a similar issue and used 3M spray glue to reattach the panels. You need a glue that is Styrofoam friendly to keep from melting the insulation which the panels attach to.
