Wall paper pealing off on side of window

Hi The original wall paper is curling in some area around the window. Is there any way of re-glueing it? I just don't want to take it all off and install new one. Also the rubber moulding around the wood cabinet is doing bump in it. Any suggestion? I have a Motorhome 25 feet Travelair 2001. Tks

Make sure the peeling isn't a result of a leak around the window. If it's real wallpaper, get some vinyl paper adhesive at a store. Dampen the peeled paper to soften it up and then use the vinyl adhesive to paste it down again. You might want to use a wax paper covered piece of plywood or scrap lumper to clamp through the window opening to hold it flat until the glue dries.

I didn't know wallpaper could "peal". What does it sound like?

I have repaired some around my drivers door. i believe it is a result of condensation at least in our case.
I used a syringe filled with white carpenters glue. There was some leakage when I pressed it down,but a damp cloth worked well.

As was previously suggested you may want to try and soften it up. Ours was vinyl and I did not do this and the repair looked good as new.
