bumps on interior wall

In the rear living room area of my fifthwheel (back wall) has some small, spikey looking bumps towards the bottom. They are inbetween the luan paneling and wallpaper...
When I first bought it, I noticed a few but thought maybe it was glue that balled up. The other day, I noticed more of them in the same area and wondering if anyone else has seen this or knows what it could be.
Next time I'm there, I'll take some pictures...
Thanks.

We had a problem one year with the Allegro's. They used a weak glue and when they trimmed the panels the wallpaper pulled out and the foam insulation got between the wallpaper and the luan.

Thanks! I figured it could've been something like that since I saw no signs of leaking or water stains/damage. Where I became confused is that there are more but I guess since there isn't a controlled temperature at all times that any heat can effect the glue.

In my experience that indicates moisture in the wall panel. Used to get it in a previous coach until I re-caulked around the windows above where the bumps occurred. I don't think it takes much moisture to do it.

Are they bumps or trim nails working loose?

I'm betting on a leak into the wall causing glue material to migrate. If there is a window or other opening/penetration above, it probably needs resealing. If no opening above, then the seam at the top.

It is on the back wall but to the left of the large window. A few weeks back I washed the unit and did some caulking and the back window looked fine so I'll have to recheck it.
Now that I think about... I'll be checking the tail lights as well because its in that area.
