LED light strip falling off

We attempted to wash off the notorious "Love Bugs" native to TX that pummelted the front cap. Not completely finished, and we noticed that the light strip over the "REDWOOD" decals on the cap, was dangling on one end.
When we able to get closer to it, we noticed that there wasn't any adhesive underneath that portion. Since we don't want that 'flapping in the wind' while we take it out on the road, and we are not going to haul it to the dealership for repair; have you had the same thing happen, and what did you do to keep it from further damage?

Thanks,

Shelley

P.S. This light strip is on the 2014 models.

Yes I have. Use an automotive double side tape last fall. Still hold strong.

Hot glue is more tenacious. I like it and it's really easy to use.

I can't even reach the strip from a ladder... how do you get a hot glue gun up there? May have to buy mittens for the extension ladder, so they don't hurt the RW.

How about sturdy step ladder in pickup bed? We have done that in years past.

I was going to do that for washing off the bugs. Don't know why I changed my mind.
Oh, now I remember... We had just finished washing and waxing a SUV, the Dually (front end and windshield).. and didn't want to get her wet again.

I think we will heed your suggestion! Thanks!

I carry a "Little Giant" 7 ft ladder around with me. I can stand close to the top of the ladder and reach the top of the trailer

I carry the GPL Folding Ladders SLD-D7 7-ft Double-Sided Ladder.
Folds up nicely and stores in basement.

It's amazingly sturdy and you can use both sides, when I'l high on the ladder I straddle the top and use both sides for better stability.
