I have a new 2011 Cougar 328 and the Rubber "Flap" Gaskets are coming loose on my bedroom slide. And instead of taking to the dealership for 2 weeks for them to repair, what can anybody recommend i use to re-glue the Rubber back onto the frame?

If you are careful, a double sided glue such as Contact Cement will work fine.
Be aware that when applying the glue to the RV and to the seal, and waiting till nearly dry, THEN when the rubber is placed against the RV it will bond instantly (and I mean INSTANTLY!) and stay put. It has to go right where you want it on the first try!
Again, it's imperative to work carefully because it will stick when it is put..period!
Note that if you do this without involving the Dealer, all further warranty claims for the seals is voided.

If you need to attach a gasket or the like and have a 1/2" wide surface you can use 3M automotive trim tape available in most chain auto stores. Once this stuff sticks you won't get it off. Not your normal double faced tape. Here is a link to show you what I am talking about.
First use the warranty if you can but sometimes it is not possible to drag your trailer to a dealer. This would be my next choice over any liquid, you can control where this goes.
