Our 2004 motor home has a wall paper border that runs around the motor home just about in the middle from top to bottom. The border is about 6 or so inches wide, it is rolling up from the top and the bottom. I am guessing that heat has caused this. What are my options with this?

Thanks Johnnie

I have the same problem with my 2002. I got a tube of wallpaper touchup glue and have been successful for the most part in gluing them down.

Ours has not been on the bottom or top (yet!), but several corner ends have. I use a tube of seam sealer & the little roller that came with it. Seems to work so far.

This is a pretty common problem we have dealt with many times on new units not even delivered and those bought and later the boarder peels up. We think the real problem is that in the factory the area is not cleaned and the sawdust from construction is in the way. We have been able to even peel some of them all the way off, clean the area, wipe down the back to the boarder with isopropolyne alcohol and reinstall. Good luck and keep us posted as to your fixes. Thanks

RV Wizard, thanks for the info, clean the area that has pilled up, with isopropolyne alcohol, and use what type of glue?

Thanks Johnnie

Who has actually removed the borders? How and what did you use to remove?

We (service departments at RV dealerships) have take them off when they were fairly new. If they have been on for many months or years then they probably will not just pull off but might with some heat from a hir dryer. There are many glues that will work, wall paper to contact; but I would stay with one that can be manipulated before it sets up.

A permanent fix is to cut some 1/8" thick strips that are about 3/4" wide, stain to match or complement your decor, then nail them over the edges of the border. If you take your time and do a nice job it can look like a factory installation.

Hitchhiker, that is a good idea, I could see how that would look very nice. I think that trying to remove all of the border, would really open up a can of worms?? I will let you'all know how it turns our.

Thanks all.

Johnnie

Gentle heat and gently pulling and lots of patience will remove the vinyl border trim. It will take a lot of WD40, or GooGone, or similar product to remove the remaining adhesive. Good luck!!
