Re-glue rat fur

I had a moisture problem over the winter that went unchecked (my mistake, lesson learned) and now the ceiling rat fur has come unglued on our trillium. What is the correct glue to use to put it back up? Underneath is a foam layer. Any spray-on suitable?

Probably 3M77 or higher.

I have used the 3M spray and it works. Key is to spray both the wall and the rat fur and then wait about 45 sec to a min. before reattaching.

Someone recommended the 3M 90 however it does not appear to be available here in BC. The 77 is, so I will go for that.

Water moisture sure makes a mess of things. Mold on curtains, cushions, walls.

Thank you!

I had trouble with the 3M 77 glue here in the Arizona heat, so I used DAP High Temperature Headliner Adhesive Spray. Since you are not in such high temps the 3M would probably work just fine. P.S. I had some 3M 90 and found that it would bleed through the headliner, leaving a yellow stain.

Paul, we keep one window open a crack and then run a little marine fan all winter. Keeps everything unmoist.

I was good every winter, however three things conspired against me this year (all my fault). I had my cracked open window open a little too much. I have one of those add-on window vents to allow air in but keeps the rain out. But the trailer was tilted such that most of the roof water ran down that corner of the trailer. That was too much for it and the water spilled over into the trailer. Then I failed to check frequently inside the trailer, which I normally would but this year was busy and my key was always not on me. Also, I never went winter camping this year. So the leak went unchecked for a long time. Now I'm cleaning up the mess. Lesson learned.

PS: I also keep a 20 Watt pet heater in the trailer during the winter and I use those dehydration crystals. But the water input was just too much.

It's one of the trailer laws of the universe.
