Wall Tape

When we were camping this weekend we noticed that the wall tape below our bedroom window was coming off.

It had rained out but don’t think it was a leak but losing it’s adhesive. We could push it back on and then it would lift off some again.

Does the tape dry up after a period of time (our trailer is 2014) and from being towed from place to place?

The tape is in good condition. What would you recommend to adhere the tape again?

I was told to get a finishing nailgun. However I found Gorilla double sided tape and stuck it with that...

Would the finishing nail gun have been to fasten the wall panel on tighter?

I never thought about double sided tape. It would leave a smoother finish under the wall tape

Not sure about tighter. The heads of the finishing nails are small and with the flex an RV has during travel, these heads pull through the softer wood on the trim tape very easy.

I peeled back the tape where the panel was loose, removed the factory staple and drill and screwed in SS screws. Masked off and sprayed auto headliner glue on both the wall and tape and reinstalled. Permanent fix for the loose panel.
