I have a 3 year old Rockwood Roo with a hard rear slide. Over the past few months I have been developing some soft small bumps under the wall paper on the rear wall adjacent to the slide out. It feels spongy like styrofoam. I can't see any leakage along the roof or see any signs of water leakage inside the TT. Anyone had similar problems that can share their experience?

I have no experience with bumpy wallpaper. But every poster over the last few years with bumps under the wallpaper has found them to be mold caused by a leak. Take a sharp knife or razor blade and slice open one of the bumps and see what's inside.

When I first joined the forum there was an extensive thread where a guy found bumps under his wallpaper.

He had a ton of pictures and covered the entire saga in a long post that has since been deleted.

Long story short - he had a huge gash on his roof where a piece of molding had popped up and water was coming through.

When all was said and done he had dry rot, mold, and delamination issues all through the trailer.

At the end of the day the RV company would not help him because he was out of warranty and because it is the RV owners job to check for those types of issues.

Bottom line - you have a leak, and probably a pretty severe one.

If you get it closed up now and get some drying going on you can probably stop this in its tracks with little damage done....but if it has been leaking for 2+ years you may already be in big trouble.

Sorry!!

It probably is a water leak.

Could be a water leak.
