Wilderness wall construction

I have a 2004 Wilderness Advantage 285RLS 5th wheel. I had a rear wall to roof leak that caused some wall delamination, visble from the inside. The RV has aluminum frame construction, but I am not sure if that pertains to the rear wall. If the rear studs are aluminum, I hope to repair the delamination from the inside. Any information about the construction or access to references would be appreciated.........thx

The walls are all glued together as one. Need a new wall usually. That's all I know to do.

Thx for the response. I understand that the inner and outer panels are glued to the studs. i am trying to determine if the studs are aluminum or wood. Appreciate any info or reference material.

Well what I'm saying is if the wall is delaminating from itself, you can't just reglue it to the studs. The wall assembly would have to be reglued together.

delamination is if the trailer has laminated walls I think your trailer has hung walls like my Cedar Creek. They pull a inside panel even if they have to reglue the outside skin to a stud. Here's a link I believe on your trailer.

You should be able to just pull the inside panel and reglue it if I am understanding your problem right

thx for the answers. The link sent by "Life2short" states that all four walls have aluminum frame construction. That allays my fear of stud deterioration. Since only the rear inside wall shows delamination, I intend to remove it and replace with a customized interior. During the process I'll determine if the exterior is sound. Whatever I learn I will post.
