FOOD FOR THOUGHT. Re attach better is good BUT be aware some trim needs to be removed for repairs.
Slides sometimes need to be removed so all trim must be removed to do it.
Accuslide cable slides may need some trim removed to service cables.
IF YOU ATTACH TO WELL repairs may become more complicated. CONSIDER ACCESS TO DRIVE MOTOR.
I PREFER SCREWS for some trim I know will need removed.
GLUE suggest you be careful, removal may do lots of damage.
Saw 2 inch screws mentioned. Walls are not very thick and what is in them that may get pierced?

Happy repairs

Trim

At some time or another all my trim has fallen off. I got tired of the penny nails and nail gun so I used screws with pop-over button caps. You insert the screws in the ring and screw it in, then pop the cap on. Got them in the same color of the trim and it looks great

We had the same issue our first trip

We had the crown molding on our’s drop the first trip out. All of the brad nails were nailed angled up, so the combination of up nailed brads, weight of molding, road bumps, and the thin luan walls (lack of gripping surface for brads) you have this issue. I air nailed all of my crown molding angling my brads down and to the side changing side to side on every brad. I have not had a problem since.
