I recently installed thinsulate to the dog house of my friends motorhome in order to reduce heat entering the coach. This really worked great UNTIL the glue gave way due to heat.

Any suggestions on what glue to use? Thanks in advance!

Be careful what you use. Nothing flammable.

I'm thinking "Liquid Nails", Maybe? I don't remember if it can handle high temps, Or how high might be the better? I don't have another tube right now so I can't read the label but, It should handle the temps ok.

I'm lost. I've gone to look for me. If I should return before I get back, please ask me to wait.

Most dog house insulation kits use one or another form of 3M HiTack High Temp Spray Adhesive which comes in an aerosol can. It is available in most auto parts and auto body supply houses.

I had the same problem, over time, the heat caused the glue to loose grip and the insulation fell down.

I since have used real "duct" tape. This stuff is very thin metal with adhesive on one side. Don't know what it's called but it's used by "tin knockers" to seal small holes and between duct sections. It's held up well and is heat resistant, no problems so far.

I recently replaced my dog house insulation using 3M Super Trim Adhesive (yellow), No. 08090. Be sure it's "Super Trim" and not "General Trim". Just follow directions and you will have a superior bond. Be careful as the liquid and vapor are flammable but after it dries it is heat resistant. Apply to both surfaces and allow drying between coats (3). Then allow at least 5 minutes of drying time before bonding.

Hi, I went to the rv store here in Tucson today and found that they use something called 'Sticky Stuff'. It's a high Strength, High Temperature glue that will not let go, as the dealer said. Comes in 12 oz. cans and is in our area $13.00 a can. Hope that helps. Have a good one, Capt.Dan
