Wrinkling Wallpaper

We've had our MH for almost two years now and have noticed several walls with the wallpaper starting to wrinkle and peel. I assume it is from the twisting and settling of the walls, windows, and cabinets over time.

We had no idea how to fix it so we thought we would try something to get the wrinkles out and to restick to the walls. My wife actually did the work. Kudos to her. She took the inside frames off of the windows which were only held on with a few screws. The she took a hair dryer to soften the paper and make the paper glue backing tacky. While the paper was warm, she used a Squeegee, something soft and flexible will do, and worked the wrinkles back out. It also made the wallpaper restick since the heat made it tacky again. It really worked fantastic. For the areas where the paper goes behind cabinets or molding, she used a razor blade and cut the paper along the cabinet or molding edge. This aloud for the paper to shift and lay flat.

Really came out great.

A great idea. Our previous MH had this issue, and it's probably only a matter of time for the situation to reappear. Now I have an idea for how to address the problem.
