Today the front grill of our new class a came off.  Now we are a long way from home.  Has anyone had this happen and can suggest a temporary fux that might get us back through our long journey?  I doubt duck tape will hold it. Thought about twist ties but dont want to damage the paint on our rv.  Help!

Can you post a photo, is it just the mesh part, maybe some screws backed out, it is really hard to say without seeing it.

JB Weld. Clean the metal to bare metal and glue it back on. You'll need to find a way to to hold the hood in place until the JBWeld cures.

Zip ties, Zip ties, Zip ties are all that is holding our grille, traveled home from Az to Oh with no problems or damage to grille. Easy to remove and secure grille properly now that we are home.

I guess its because we traveled over some very bumpy roads?  It was held by glue and screws.  We got some zip ties. He is working on it now.  Should be covered by warranty when we get home.
