I have a small spot on my coach and I haven't messed with it but am getting ready to. I was in the auto body business for 30+ years and I am going to go from the back side to try and fix a bubble on mine by drilling a hole from the backside at the top and bottom of the bubble and inject resin in and then compress it and let it cure without putting a hole on the outside wall for no chance of a leak from that.

From the backside? Does that mean that you'll be drilling from inside the RV? If so how will you determine the depth to drill?

Yes I will drill from the inside and I will measure the wall thickness and use a depth gauge on the bit and go slow and be careful

Good luck on the repair. The problem is that the wood is what is delamanating. The wood is in layers. when you glue the wood back together it will separate at another layer. The only way we ever had any luck with repairs, was to go from inside and cut out to the fiberglass, glue in new wood.

I agree, it's the wood substrate that's come appart. Permanent and asthetically perfect results will require replacement of that substrate.

It depends on where you are in Texas. If you are in the Dallas area, then call Blue Moon RV in Carrollton. They area a mobile tech or also have a service center where they do all kinds of repairs. They have done good work for me a couple of times.
