There is a pad for above the door? I have bumped my head so many times that I have been thinking about getting out my old work hard hat.

Never paid much attention to it, so I don't know. Are you having a problem with yours?

No problem with it but I have a couple of areas just above it where the ceiling vinyl was never adhered to the aluminum from day one. If I remove the pad I think I can get to the "bubble" with some cement without having to poke a hole in the vinyl.

I see no plugged screw caps. I wonder if it glued or double sided taped in place????

Disclaimer - our trailer is much older, but: Ours has two screws covered by a plastic cap that just pops off. It's just a piece of wood under the fabric.

I haven't had a chance to look at mine but I assume it's like you said, double sided tape.

Looks like a call to Jackson Center is in your future.

Let us know what you find out.
