This material might be useful...

A colleague introduced me to this material recently. About sugru - the future needs fixing - sugru

It is a rubber material that can be molded, similar to modeling clay, then it cures into a flexible consistency.

It reportedly adheres very well to most materials.

I am just beginning to imagine how this could be used in our trailers.

Looks a little pricy though.

Oh, and it is a silicone rubber.

I ordered the sample pack and have used it for repairing several ceramic items, reattaching a plastic heater knob in my car, and also used the red sample to repair our Boler's broken tail light. The light repair has held up for about a year, though we do plan to upgrade eventually to LEDs.

Here's a previous reference:
Sugru anyone?
It does look interesting.

Information is good. Lack of information is not so good, but misinformation is much worse. Check facts, and apply common sense liberally.

I've been a follower of them on Facebook forever. ~however~ most of what is done with Sugru can be done with that old standby JB Weld. Many flavours of that stuff are available for pretty much any darn application. Generic moldable epoxies are out there, too. All of them are a lot less expensive than Sugru. But then, they aren't as colourful.

I think 3D printers will replace this kind of thing. When I first read about Sugru.. my daughter was in elementary school. She's now a full-fledged adult... more than 21 y/o. Thinking back Sugru is NOW more of a replacement for Modge Podge.
