Exterior Repair

Does anyone know how to fix a stud that has popped outward, pushing against the outside aluminum paneling on a coachmen catalina. It's inbetween the slideouts, near the top.

My Coachman Catalina is actually in the shop right now awaiting a repair for a bulging side wall located on the drivers side, near the top/nose of the coach. I believe a fastner came loose and the air pressure is causing the side to budge. Came back from a 40 day trip and took it straight to the shop. I hope to hear back soon so we can plan some fall camping trips. My camper is a 2012 25RBKS

What model year is the unit?

Can you post pictures of the issue, both inside and out.

The only way to fix it properly is to either remove the aluminum siding or remove a piece of paneling from the inside and put the stud back into place and then refasten the stud.
