Sag in ceiling material above main TV

We noticed the ceiling above the main TV is starting to separate and hang down slightly. Looks like the Glue that holds the White ceiling material to the wood is letting go. Has anyone experienced this and if so does anyone have any ideas to repair it. The arrows are pointing to were it has come down and you can see the sag. Thanks

Slide is in. No water coming in. Feels like the Glue has given way in the middle of that area and it is causing the areas around it to slowly start to sag. I can push up on the area and you can hear the glue sticking for a second then lets go.

Jim, I had the same thing on the Travel Supreme, no water damage, I think it was the extreme heat in FL while in storage. I now run a dehumidifier sitting on the kitchen counter. It also helps to move the air so it doesn't get stagnate hot. Travel Supreme replaced the ceiling panel, end of problem.

I also think it is just one of those random bad luck deals with some glue letting loose or poor application. I'm sure a dealer could fix it but my suggestion would be look in your area for one of those mobile headliner repair guys for autos. They might need some tech help via you calling Entegra CS to how to remove the trim, but I'll bet they know how to glue that back just like an auto.

The alternative is a DIY repair. I'd try removing the trim (carefully) and using some spray adhesive and making a temporary brace and plate to hold the pleather ceiling cover flat.

We have the same issue, in the same spot, with our 2015 Anthem 44B. . It was noticed by NIRVC Phoenix while we had the coach in for other issues. We're not the first owners, so I couldn't confirm the cause. We live in AZ and have had similar problems in other coaches. I tend to agree with the "extreme heat" comment earlier. Our Anthem sat on a lot for a couple of months this year in 100+ degree heat. We were told that the trim needs to be removed and the headliner re-glued. We will have it repaired next month.

Thanks for the info Chuck. Here in Nevada it is very dry so I use a Humidifier. Just enough to keep wood from cracking. This started to come down when we first got home and had the air turned off inside for about 3 days. It got rather hot inside and I noticed it then. Probably over heated the glue. Lovely. Hope you guys are doing good in Florida.

Dave I will be calling Entegra on Monday. Hope they have a solution and maybe a name of someone out near us. Thanks

Bill is NIRVC going to do the work. I will give them a call also as I will be down there this February. That particular area above the TV is a wide piece of material so it no doubt will want to sag without some other means to keep it up there other than just glue. Thanks

Jim, Yes they are. I understood it's not a major repair. Just removing trim and re-adhering the ceiling material. I'll try to post pictures after the repair.
