Don't confuse 3M super weatherstrip adheasive with super glue. The 3M stuff is more a like silicone rubber/caulk in consistancy. It stays somewhat flexible but is far stronger than silicone. It also has some body to it and can fill gaps between the materials you are bonding. It sticks very well making it far harder to remove from a surface than silicone rubber/caulk, an advantage where you want permanence.

Super glue doesn't fill gaps well and its instant drying can be a disadvantage in some applications. Super glue's best application is probably the original, Viet Nam battlefield sutures.

Super glue has some advantages, but I cannot think of an application in a trailer. Maybe others can.

>> PS - some guy at one store told me that crazy glue can be used to repair/fill cracks/etc in the existing gasket - is that for real - does he know how many hours and tubes of glue that would take?! But, maybe there's some merit in his suggestion if someone has just some minor gasket repairing to do

I was refering to Lainey's reference to crazy glue, not the 3M adhesive.

Sorry for the confusion. ;)
