Paint bubbles?

Hi all,

So doing spring cleaning on the trailer (2014 38RL) and was shocked to see little paint bubbles on all the laminated surfaces. It's on the exterior doors, slides and sidewalks. Has anyone seen these? I have reported it to the dealer but don't have much hope for help as the coach is 1 year out of warranty. The bubbles are not localized but all over. There are none on the front or rear caps or metal side skirts. They are soft but none are broken. Any ideas of a cause?
Thanks in advance!
~~ Yale

Yale, Do you have a painted unit or are the stripes and such actually graphics?? Vinyl graphics do bubble occasionally. Just helping to find you an answer.

Chris,
It's full body paint, no vinyl graphics what so ever.

I hope you are correct ... I'm wondering if anyone else has seen this and knows the cause/fix. Just a repaint if there is a bonding issue won't fix it short of a complete strip ... this is not good ☹️

Was this a paint problem or something with the fiberglass?

Strange it would show up now, and appears to be random. Are they soft or hard when you press on them?

Very strange it would happen with paint & clear coat, and not graphics.. I had that with my KZ, but it was the vinyl tape, and looked exactly like that..

Hope you find a fix, without spending money...

I have seen these types of bubbles form on boats that are left in the water for extended periods with out "bottom paint". I can not tell from the pic if it a paint issue or a fiberglass problem either.

Please let us know how this turns out!
