The hood bracket on my 2017 Winnebago Sunstar fell off. Does anybody have any fixit tips, video, etc.?

Greetings RudyV,
We have a few threads discussing just that problem. These two are recent and pretty good:

Welcome to the forum.

Used Epoxy

Hi Rudy,

Yep mine fell off a few years ago. I used JB Weld 5 minute epoxy, but you have to work fast. I think the key is the prep. I scraped all the old glue off both the bracket and front fiberglass, down to bare metal and fiberglass, to get a good bond. It's been three years and 20K miles, but so far so good. Some guys did drill holes and attach with nuts & bolts for a full proof method, but I just didn't want to do that. Good luck. Ed
