We also have the same problem with our 1990 Excella 34. I tried spray on glue - didn't work. Our wallpaper has also shrunk a bit.

I think I'm going to peel it all off and paint the walls with a special water resistant paint.

The "wallpaper" is actually a flexible vinyl film. After a number of years the plasticiser in the formula starts to evaporate and the film shrinks non-uniformally and that causes the wrinkles and lifting. You can try to re-glue it but it will be difficult to make it lay flat. You might have to even cut it. This will not look good and you might have to use some new bathroom rated vinyl "wallpaper" as a replacement. Painting is another potential solution.

We are planning to remove the wallpaper in our bathroom and paint but we don't know what to use to remove the current wallpaper. Any suggestions. Thanks very much.

We had the same problem with the vinyl in the bath only on an '86 Excella 32'. Previous owner had tried several fixes with no success. Started in corner of shower. Then had problems in several areas. When I checked the board behind the section in shower found that it was not real smooth & felt paint might not be the solution. Also realized that removing the paper was going to be very difficult. Bit the bullet & redid the entire bath with the 4x8 sheets of vinyl from Lowes. Not the easiest job but turned out well. Did it in '04. I had owned unit for 5 yr. Is holding up very well also.

3M has a spray contact adhesive no. 77 which does stick to the plywood and the vinyl wall paper. If there are no wrinkles, caused by shrinkage of the vinyl, it will come out looking not too bad.

West Marine Wall paPER & Below counter sink

West Marine has a product...called "Six-10"
It is an epoxy binder.
It will glue ANYTHING. Word of caution, do NOT use it anywhere you ever want to lift, remove or have future access to.

I have used it with great success in this very area, travled from FL to AK, back to issues at all. The application can be a bit tricky. Not out of the tube, but id you have serious wrinkles....a small strip of 1/8 ply and some clamps if it is on your leading edge....or if in the corners you can use speing loaded curtain rods...small or lg.

As a closing thought, those of us that have the below counter sink...the one that is held on with clamps and is forwver droppping down or needing center support.....This is THE product. place a very god bead on the sink edge, pull the sink down once to assure that you have contact all the way around. ( add more if you dont) Then replace the sink, clamp in place with the original clamps and place the temp support in the morning. you will NEVER have any seperation or support issues again.
