Loose fender

Just my luck, left Winnebago just hours ago and driving through Des Moines, some nice person gave us a beep and pointed at the passenger side wheel. Sure enough, it was a fender that had come loose again. Two years ago, we repaired it with J&B weld and it held until today.

Heading South, so going back to Winnebago is out of the question. Should we clean up the surfaces and re-apply J&B. Your thoughts

Or visit a local reputable automotive body shop ... they have good adhesives ...

I had a loose bracket for a fog lamp ... they glued it about 6 years ago ... it is still holding ...

Never been all that happy with JB weld, As you noted it lasts only so long then it lets go.. GOOP is a product I use a lot of now days, not as strong as JB, but I've never had it let loose.

Gorilla Glue also is handy.

And the suggestion to have a pro use his adheasives is the best one.. They have stuff we can only dream about.

I'm assuming you're talking about a front fender. Aren't the front fenders hinged at the top and held in place at the bottom with screws on a Winnebago gas MH? Why can't you replace the screws with bolts & nuts instead of using adhesive? Flipping up the fender makes it so easy to get access to the engine?

Loose Fender

Sorry, I did not clearly state the problem. The fender came loose from the bracket that can be swung upward and is attached with piano hinges. The fender was attached to the bracket at the factory with either double sided tape or an industrial adhesive. The tape or adhesives have failed.

I used Gorrilla(sp) Glue on mine-----same fender, and so far, so good. Just smeared it on with a Q-tip and clamped it for a day
