2004 Pace Arrow Leather Ceiling Sag

I have been full timing in my 2004 Pace Arrow 35G for 11 years now and love it.
The coach has been very reliable. Seeing that I live in Palm Springs, of course I have gone thru 6 AC units, but everything else is doing great! The problem I have is a sagging section of my leather ceiling. Any ideas on where to take it? Or a self fix? I can't imagine they would have to remove the entire panel. Let me know.

Sounds like the glue holding the material to the backing has dried out and let go.
Could be you'll have to look into having someone in, to inject fresh glue with a needle through the material and roll smooth, if no stretching has taken place.

Inquire at local upholstery shops , to see if they do mobile repairs.

I have a 2005 Pace Arrow with a sagging ceiling as well. My service guy says that he'll have to pull the ceiling material back to where it is still properly attached and then use a spray adhesive to reattach it and smooth it out like putting wallpaper on a ceiling. He's been putting off the job for a while because it's a finicky job that takes considerable time to do right, and he's so busy with other client's more critical issues at present. One day he'll get to it and I'll report on the progress.
The ceiling's condition has not progressed any in the last year, so hopefully it'll stay put until he can fix it.

(95% of the time, it is the foam backing between the material and the fiberboard. The foam starts to dissolve (it just turns to powder). The material sags. Respraying with glue does nothing, because the glue will not stick to powder. You can clean all the powder and glue the material to the board, but it is hard to get a smooth look without the foam.

That doesn't sound too promising! No wonder he doesn't want to rush into the job. I hope that it hasn't progressed so far that it's not repairable.
