Even tried using a hair dryer on it (no results- it only strretttttccchhed the already unstuck portions, without getting any more to release.

I then painted and papered with a border.

A year later, the paint still has great adhesion, but the vinyl has continued to peel in places.
We...... when I say we I mean my wife used a steamer to remove the wall paper. Combination of the moisture and the heat causes the adhesive to release somewhat easily. BTW ours is a 1984 Winnebago.

Heidi, we did tile in our Winnebago and we're having trouble with the grout adhering to the tiles. We used a latex based sanded grout. It looks great till you drive then it cracks. We have only had the problem on the wall tiles, the counter tops and bathroom floor are fine. We were curious what type of grout you used on yours? Also wanted to know if you have had it out on the road since completing the tile work?

I noticed that you had wrote that you were getting your flooring from The Home Depot...... it coincidentally looks familiar to the flooring we did in ours. It looks great by the way.

I love the tile in the kitchen what did you do to prep the wall and did you have to use a glue that wouldn't bleed though the glass tile?
