Exterior plastic trim/bumpers

This past weekend I noticed that some of the black trim pieces on the coach are coming off. I have pushed these back in before, but one longer section had almost come completely off when I found it. Id hate to lose this stuff.


I was thinking about just applying some silicone caulk under and press it back in place.


Anyone have a better suggestion?


thanks,
Aaron

Do yourself a favor Aaron and just replace the trim from Out of Doors Mart.
After the trim gets some years on it, its almost impossible to keep in place. Also do not use silicone on the trim, or anywhere on the coach for that matter.
When you try to glue all that trim back in, when you will be replacing it anyway, you will have to dig all that stuff out of the tracks to install the new trim!
Just about every track of 1 1/2 trim, was attempted to be glued in place on our 350, so yes, I had to get all that Vulkem out of the aluminum tracks!
