The carpeting on our slide is starting to lift alont the front edge. It looks like it is stapled down from the factory but some are missing or have come out. Would it be better to staple this down again or use some flooring adheasive? Anyone had to deal with this before? Not too big of an issue but just kind of annoying. Thanks

A air operated stapler is what I used to fasten down carpeting in my RV.

We had this problem. It was caused by closing the slide and part of the seal along the bottom of our slide ripped off and came in with it, so check your seal. I used a hand stapler to refasten the carpet and it hasn't been a problem. I also replaced the seal.

Why not use both. Use the adhesive and then staple it to hold until the adhesive cures.

I agree with Frank. Our carpeting is held down with double sided tape and it has worked pretty well
