Wall Paper Issues

My 2011 XLR 35X14 has a wallpaper virus. Little bumps have appeared in various places throughout the coach with most in the garage. Last week a soft bubble about the size of two half dollars appeared behind the bathroom door on the outer wall. I pierced the bubble with a pin and red liquid began to drip from the pin hole. Has anyone else experienced these problems with your wall paper?

Have not ever had that problem but some how you have moisture in the camper. If they are in different areas of the camper I wouldn't think it is from a leak. Sounds more like condensation.

The bubble is about half way down the wall. I don't think it is condensation as I leave the AC on about 80 to keep the coach dry. I also leave two dry-zee-air canisters in the coach at all times. Beats me!

Yeah! I think you are right. I just don't know how to find it.

I've been thinking about this issue and just don't understand how water could be getting in the wall. The roof is good and I keep two desiccator canister in the fiver, one in the garage and one in the galley, so I don't think it is condensation. The only thing I can think of is an outside speaker allowing water to penetrate the wall during a blowing rain. What do you think?

Anything is possible. It could be some of the caulk around speaker or window.

What about the little bumps in the garage. It looks like the wall has the Chicken Pox!
