If you can not find any screws hidden under fabric edges the wood strip moldings maybe held on fascia's by Velcro tape strips.
Use a heavy blade spatula to pry & lift off fascia trim.

It might be similar to how our slide outs are trimmed out (pic below) on our Bounder. The material is glued down & the trim pieces are finish-nailed on top. Once you, carefully, get the trim off, you should be able to heat the area with a hair dryer to soften the glue. Then cut & peel off the damaged & replace.

Nlovnit, It is just like you said, we just pryed off the trim carefully the fab. was staple/glue, I took the cover pieces down and pried old meteral off, I then had to iron my extra material to get the wrinkles out,I'm still working on it so I will keep you updated. this is a slow process, hope were doing this right..
Thanks
Bonnie

we finally finished it was not as hard we took the board border down very carefull,we were able to pull the cloth off which had staples and glue, we use that as our pattern to recut the new one,we bought some spray glue for cloth ,sprayed the board then lay it on the cloth and folded and trim as need be and stapled it bk down, let sit for three hr's .actually we didnt put it bk up till the next day . it turn out very good.
the only thing if it discolor's again I'm not putting the cloth back I will either paint it or put a paper border bk up. I'm not really crazy about the cloth boarder any way's. I was just glad It wasnt as hard taking the trim down and my hubby, actually put the trim bk up better than what it was to begin with
I like this site it is great for all info,on "MH" thanks ..

Me either. Our slideouts are trimmed that way. Sure the cloth inserts match the valances, but it was the cheap way out doing it that way. Starting in 2007, the trims were wood (or at least wood-look).
