Trim Strip Adhesive

I had to remove a trim strip on the beltline molding of an American Coach Tradition. It was held on with some kind of double-sticky tape which is probably an OEM product. I need to reattach but don't know what to use. I was thinking of using 3M superweatherstripping glue, the yellow monkey-snot stuff. Anyone have any other suggestions? Gorilla tape maybe?

Double sided molding tape has been around for a long time. Should be available at a good Auto parts store. If you are having a hard time finding it, check with a local Body shop. Ask them where they get theirs or find a Body shop supply store.

3M or Scotch tape

I have used the 3M double sided red tape in places on our RV to hold panels with good success. It can be purchased at most auto parts stores.

Thanks - I've never seen double-sided molding tape, but then I've never looked either.

I have found it at Walmart too. I use it both inside and outside on wood, metal, or whatever. It is better than whatever Winnebago used originally.

Or, if you want for it to be removable like I do on the slide side trim, you can use commercial strength double-sided Velcro. I did this because a lot of time the PS seat gets moved back just enough to catch the trim edge when putting the slide out. It has saved me a couple of times by pulling away just enough to keep the trim from breaking where I thought I had moved the chair forward enough but didn't.
