I just noticed some ceiling bumps too on my X160 over the spare bunk--I think it's water damage. Mine appeared close to the gutter. I did go up on the roof and noticed that the gutter was blocked by a tree nut. I also think my unit was level, which of course is a "no no" when parked.

I'm bringing in my unit this week to check those bumps as well as other obvious water damage. I'll let you know what they say about the bumps.

I have those weird little zit bumps on our wall, close to the ceiling. We've had several leaks repaired, so it could be that

our 05 ff leaked like a freak when we first got it...

OK, although I didn't get a specific answer as to what the tiny bumps are, the RV dealership noted a small water leak close to those bumps. Also, they said that I had tons of cracks in the sealant on the roof. I certainly believe this to be true. I wonder if this is a defect in the sealant that the manufacturer used. They had to strip everything off and apply new product over the entire unit. Pricetag--$550. I hope I don't have to do this again anytime soon. And who knows how much the inside repair job will be...I thought these rubber roofs were a good thing.

Those bumps indicate water leaks. Get them fixed before your into replacing walls and structure. Check your marker lights and any joints.

I would check this out www.rvleaks.com also the would does not become soft until it is too late as I just discovered the hard way. Those bumps are the tell tale signs of leaks that need to be addressed. If the wood is soft your into major money. Find the leak first.

You can't fix the bumps unless you replace the panelling. Which isn't worth it. I just learned to live with mine.
