Does anyone have experience with their vinyl inside coach peeling/creeping? I'm really checking on newer models say 2005 & newer. If you have had fixed, how has it worked out for you & have the fixes stayed fixed? Has the coach been stored in hot climates?

You mean the thin skin that covers the wall board? I have not seen peeling, but a tear will sometimes spread if it is in a traffic used area. I imagine if you were to flatten out the surface and spray it with some type of clear sealer it would keep the surface from peeling again.

Thanks, yes I mean the thin skin on the wall board. Only problem is that there is lots & lots of it happening & hence wondering if anyone else has had problems especially where used mostly in very hot, dry climates. I'm thinking the glue is heat-activated & gives way causing the vinyl to peel with coach movement.

WayKar, welcome to our website and forum. Where are you? While out in Arizona and working for a dealer out there; I found out we needed to keep a bucket of water in the coaches so the wood and stuff would not dehydrate and split apart. This may help this issue as well. Some manufacturers will not install high grade wall board on their lower end coaches and you will always have this kind of issue. Let us knw of some brands you are looking at for feedback from those that own or have owned them. Good luck and enjoy the forum.

Thanks RV Wizard. Yes, the coach is being stored in Tucson area & yes we put a couple of 5 gallon buckets of water plus any other containers we have available around because we also heard about wood issues. We have a 2006 Itasca Ellipse but I know the same wall vinyl is used by other manufacturers like Monoco & Fleetwood. Appreciate any feedback you may have on topic.

WayKar, I wish I knew the answer for you but I would be guessing in the dark. If you can get it glued back down you might try a protectant that has UV and Ozone inhibitors in it. I use a product called Envy that has simply been amazing on inside and outside of coach and other vehicles.

Thanks again RV Wizard. Looks like might not be an easy solution. Can you tell me more about this Envy product though & where I can find the product as might prove useful for other applications.
