2005 Jayco Eagle Interior Wall Damage

My Brother In Law has a 05 Jayco Eagle 325BHS 5th Wheel.
This afternoon he was showing me some interior wall damage by the rear bunks, I have no idea what is causing it so I told him I would post pictures on the Jayco Forum and see if someone could tell us what is happening to his back wall and what he needs to do to fix it.

My first thought would be that moisture is getting into the wall. I would check the roof carefully. Are there windows in the area that could be leaking?

Yep, its a moisture problem and had the same thing happen to my TT.

As mentioned, check entire roof, roof/sidewall joint, marker lights, windows, vents, etc.. If the FW has the Filon fiberglass outside walls, check for delamination...., it looks like this:

A leak can occur at one end of a trailer and show up as far away as the other end. I would check for possible leaks on the entire roof and at any penetration in the walls. Reseal anything that looks suspicious. Then, find a dealer that can do a pressure test of the trailer to see if you all missed anything.

If your BIL is lucky and the damage isn't too bad, once the leaks are sealed the bubbled wall covering can be carefully slit open to allow the wood underneath to dry out, then the wall covering can be glued back down. An iron set at low heat will help level wrinkles.

I agree, it has to be moisture.

OK, that was my first thought, water damage.
There are no windows in the back of the 325BHS, just 4 bunks.
He did have a leak at the front cap 6 months ago and some water damage in the front pinbox area.
Thanks for the info, I will make sure he checks the roof again and makes sure it is sealed.
