Crown Molding falling

Why doesn't Keystone engineers come up with a better solution to attaching the crown molding. Why should we have to fix this whenever they fall off. I've seen years of posts on this issue so Keystone should be aware of this chronic problem.

I had dinette side come down last fall. I used clear silicone and finish screws to reattach it. I pushed trim with nails sticking out back into the same nail holes (buttered with a little clear silicone) then added the finish screws. For the other side that had not fallen I just put finish screws in it. I did not drive the screws in straight right angle to trim, but put them in at opposing angles.

I have also used PL-200 construction adhesive to secure the trim. Just be careful not to overdo it and get too much squeeze out.

I haven't had it "fall off" yet but did a BR closet closet door slide track replacement that required the molding be removed. I have a low buck Harbor Freight 1/4" crown pneumatic stapler and used tit with low enough pressure on my Porter Cable compressor to just seat the staples at just below the surface of the molding instead of those stales being driven almost though. Still up and tight 5 years and probably 20K miles since.

Just don't grab the engraved slide trim tough. Two of ours have been reinstalled on trips with screws after coming loose due to poor stapling

Many manufactures have the same issue with crown molding coming down. In our 43' DP, which we bought new in 2017, I had to reattach a large 20'+ piece the second year of ownership. I used clear silicon and a finish nailer. The next year it came down again so I used double sided 3m tape and finish screws, that held it nicely.
