Keep your slideout corners from getting away

Got a slideout or two on your RV? Take a close look at the exterior of your slideout rooms next time you do a walk-around. Many slideouts have corner pieces installed -- they're an easy way to cover the slideout trim pieces where they join at a 45 degree angle.

Here's a problem through: These cover pieces can get loose over time and eventually blow off on the side of the road somewhere in Texas. One solution is to take them off and reapply adhesive using a clamp to hold them in place until the glue thoroughly cures. An alternate fix is to remove them, drill and countersink three or four holes, then reapply adhesive and screw them back into place. Once the glue cures, cut the protruding screws off the back side where the slideout meets the wall. This application will keep those pieces in place -- even in Texas!
