Hard Bump on Side

I have a 1998 Tioga which we have had for a few years.

I noticed that on one side there are a couple bumps that are very hard to the touch - can't push the bump in and feels solid.

Maybe an inch or two wide.

Any idea what this is?

Looking at delamination information it always seems to say that delamination is soft to the touch.

Any information appreciated.

USA the edge of a quarter to tap around/over the bump to see if it is Delaney and how big. Solid sounding and your good, hollow and strong indication that you have delamed.

Just tried this with the quarter and to be honest sounds the same if I tap on spot versus non spot area - only difference maybe a little higher pitch, but maybe I am hearing things.

Any idea what the difference should sound like?

Could be timber framing been wet and swelling, or even rusting steel will do similar thing

That is what I would say. I would just make sure the area above that area is 100% air tight. Funny thing with "leaks". It may be leaking at one spot and traveling to another where wood starts to be effected by wetness.

Thanks - if sealed up and no leaks at this point is this something to worry about as far as getting worse or will it just stay the same as long as no water gets in?

The change in pitch is what you are looking for. If it is delamed it will sound more like a thud than a high pitched tap.
