I had them on my last unit. What year is your unit? 2011? Warranty up? If it's on you then a pin works well with a plastic squeegee to work them out. It's the effect of your wall "gassing" through the micro holes in the finish. The only way to correct it is to take all the decals off and clear coat the wall. Heat tends to get them going when the sun hits the walls.

The pin solution seems to be the best option.

Our 2014 Octane developed bubbles in the graphics when it was new. I was told to leave them alone for awhile and they normally go away. Today, 18 months later, I cannot find any track of where they were So in our case the service manager was correct. They were on the windows mainly, with a few small (dime size or less ) on the fiberglass walls. He told us if we punched holes with pins, there was a chance we would see holes in the graphics once they aged awhile. May or may not be similar to your case, just what worked for us.

I had bubbles on some of the graphics on our old trailer. They didn't develop until we had it 5 or 6 years. At that point the pin might work, but there is nothing on the backside left that sticks. The only thing to do then is use an Exacto knife with #11 blade and make a small slit in the bubble, then carefully lift the edges and push a little bit of Gorilla Glue into the bubble. A flat toothpick works nice for this. Work it flat with a small plastic squeegee and remove the excess glue that pushes out through the slit.
