Is "silicon glue" different from silicon caulk, and more to the point, should I not use it on the Bambino's interior aluminum?
As the author of the quote you cite, I must first say that anything you stick to the walls in the privacy of your own Airstream is entirely your business as well as the adhesive you may choose to use.
That being said, you really need to tell us about your Airstream. Does it have vinyl-clad, aluminum interior skin. If so, you should use an adhesive that adheres to the vinyl surface.
Do you have a 60's era Vintage Airstream? If so your adhesive must adhere to the Zolatone without damaging it.
Only if your Airstream is one of those late models with a polished aluminum interior will your adhesive come in direct contact with aluminum.
So, I am not sure which silicone "glue" you are looking at.
Do you mean "silicone adhesive caulk?" If so, that is more caulk than adhesive and not suitable for your application as inferred from Post #1.
