Rub Rail or Waist Trim?

Another question about something that needs attention on my LY30. This trim strip that runs around the coach has started to come off. front The bumper piece has completely fallen off and the curb side is about half way there. What is the procedure to either replace or reattach this? It seems fairly rigid and along with the weight is seems like it would be a challenge to re-attach. Ideas anyone?

It is a peal and stick product. Must clean old tape from alum extrusion completely before trying to install new trim. I don't think you should try to re-attach failing trim strip. they carry replacement trim at Out of Doors Mart.

That is a peel and stick trim (possibly a 3M product). Old tape probably dried out causing it to come loose. If you want to re-attach you must clean and remove old tape from Aluminum extrusion and the trim. Temp fix with double sided carpet tape might work short term, but you should replace trim. It can be ordered from Out of Doors Mart.

Thanks for the pointer to check out Out of Doors. I guess I should abandon hope of finding even a close color match. I'll get away with black on the sides, but the front bumper piece is wider and it looks like they only have blue, maybe orange.

If it is a rubber like moulding strip and flat on the back it can be reattached with an automotive adhesive. I can’t think of the name right now but it is yellow in colour and smells like rubber cement when wet. You put it on both surfaces, wait till tacky and stick it on. I used this ten years ago and it is still good. Might be called weatherstrip adhesive.

Does Scotch-Weld neoprene contact adhesive ring a bell as the product you used?
