Noticed some wallpaper separation

We were looking at a Ventana LE yesterday at our dealer as we thinking about specials and noticed some wallpaper separation. Pictures attached. The entire kitchen backsplash seemed to be separating.

This was a left over 2018 - with a build date about 18 months months ago. It spent many months in the Florida heat - I am think this is the cause.

Anyone else experience this?

Yes, on the kitchen slide by the backsplash in our Bay Star. The slide flexes a bit and the wallpaper has wrinkled in places. It has not gotten worst, stayed the same over the past 2 years. I also notice by the passenger side front window. Not a water issue in our case, just flexing.

Our 2004 MADP has the same thing in two places. It hasn't gotten worse so it may not be uncommon on other coaches. I would not worry about it.

I have a 2018 Dutch Star and had the same problem to the left of the kitchen backsplash. I had Independence RV cut a piece of quarter round trim, wood trim that matched the cabinet work and pin nail it to the wall with a little glue on the trim piece, looks like it's always been there. They did an excellent job, I did not want the wall removed for something so simple. It would have been warranty work. I guess you could say I cut Newmar a break on that one!

This is pretty common in any RV, especially around the windows. The flexing of the coach will cause a "pull" on the wallpaper. Often, it can be sliced where it meets the window, resealed and cleaned up.

Yep, as Don said. We had it around the windows in our '02 DSDP. No leaks either.

Thanks folks. Just learning what is normal versus abnormal. I hope you have a good weekend!
