Park next to a tree, houase or block wall. Drill 1/4" hole through the filon (not the plywood). Spray some minimal expanding foam in the hole. Cover the affected area with plywood. Place a few 1X2 braces from the plywood to the wall, wedging it so the filon flattens out. Remove the wood the next day. Caulk the hole.

I would use a good two part epoxy as the "adhesive", not foam.

You said you wanted to sell it and then said make it live-able. Which is it?

The bubbles he is talking about MAY be in an RV with aluminum side walls in which case they will be paint bubbles that must be removed, filled, and repainted. Most of these bubbles include corrosion through the aluminum skin, water behind the skin, and the repair can get pretty involved.

From another post it's a 96 coachman. That wouldn't have aluminum sidewalls. I assume it's delamination. No real good fix for that. Aside from the sidewall, it's likely there is water damage in the wall as well.

No fix for delamination -- Water leak is the cause -- There`s a luan backing for the fiberglass siding --Water causes the luan to seperate & it will not hold any kind of adhesive -- If you try any of them,you`re probably gonna create more problems than you have now --

Trouble and difficult to fix on newer RVs. Sell, take a loss on this “investment” and buy another RV after a complete inspection.
