Trillium Interior Door panel separating from door

I am the new owner of a 1979 Trillium 4500 that is in very good condition. It has been kept garaged for it's entire life in Sedona Arizona. I have an RV garage that she now lives in.

The only thing that requires some fixing so far is the interior door panel. It seems to be pulling away from the exterior door panel at the bottom. Looks like the old adhesive is giving up. Has anyone experienced and fixed this? If so, what is the best way to fix. I was considering a strong adhesive and clamps to get the job done but it may require more that that? Other than the separating, the door hangs, closes and locks just fine. It is the deluxe model door with window that opens.


My Trill is all original except for a new fridge and AC in the escape window. I even have the original key fobs! I have only needed to replace the water hand pump and tires. RV dealer ran a shakedown test and all functions passed.

Thanks so much for any advice, Steph

Door pictures now included

Sort of hard to see, but there is a about a 1/2 inch separation between panels.

Hi,
I am in Toronto and bought a T4500 with the same door with window 2 years ago. I have no experience with the use of adhesives. I used G-clamps with wood shims to fix my delaminated door using F/G resin and hardener. good luck with the repair. It has held so far.

Thanks for the idea

Thank you so much for your perspective and an alternative way to fix. Sounds like a good idea and I will incorporate that into my fix.
