Rubber Moulding falling off

I have a 2007 Safari SE 20 ft trailer. There is a one inch wide rubber moulding that runs from the side of the trailer around the back. This moulding is coming off on one side and I have tried multiple different adhesives to try and get it to stay on. Anyone had the same problem? If so, what did you use to get it to stick? Right now it is duct taped on! Very, very, tacky!

rubber moulding

had the same prob on my 2012 International, rubber moulding was turning loose in several spots. i used Gorilla Glue, the product is a heavy duty construction adhesive. comes in a tube , like caulking. just had a tube that was recently used. seems to do the job , just finished a 2 week trip and have no problems. good luck.

As mentioned above, 3M double sided tape is the proper adhesive to use. I would caution against using glue or construction adhesive since at some point the trim will deteriorate and need replacing. I have completely replaced the molding on our 19' Bambi and used 3M adhesive remover to remove the molding and replace.

Rubber Moulding Falling Off

Thanks for all of the replies. I bought the super strength 3M moulding tape and that did the trick! Plus, it was very easy to use. No more duct tape!

Just used the 3M Super strength molding tape. It looks very similar to the original double sided tape which was reasonably easy to remove. I had a long section that detached while in storage during unusually cold weather here in Texas. I wonder if folks further north who see even lower temperatures have a problem with the molding detaching?
