I have a 96 prism. on one side of the camper the siding about 4 foot by 3 foot spot looks as if it unattached from frame it is like a big bubble.i have looked for leaks but cannot seem to find one. how do i reattach it to take the bubble out? i just bought it a few months ago and the bubble was not there. of course we have had a few storms but i have check no sign of water leakage anywhere.

is there a way to put glue in there and press it back down. if so what kind of glue would i use?
thank you for any help.

That sounds like de-lamination has occured. The usual cause is water intrusion (water leak), which is sadly a common occurrence with RV's. The best water leak detection is Seal Tech . Trying to fix the de-lamination is useless until the source of the water is eliminated. Once the leak is sealed de-lamination may be repaired. This website is a valuable resource for the DIY type person: Repairing Surface Damage There are several pages on that website, so look around. A man once told me he repaired such a "bubble" as you describe by drilling some small holes in the bubble, injecting them with the proper glue, then parking the MH next to a large tree. He then put a brace between the tree and the bubble to push it back into a straight wall. Never did know the result though.
Good Luck!
