We have just purchased a slingshot 25rs, used for the fist time and havve noticed small bumps/bubbles on the wall where the door is close to closet. Everything I hav researched is makin me think there is a water leak. Has anyone else experienced this problem

That's a pretty good sign there's moisture behind that area. Not sure if you can access from below or follow the plumbing but I would expect that you would start to see it expand pretty quickly. With the plastic plumbing in these walls, anything is possible.

I would buy or rent one of the pin hole camera's available from Home Depot or Harbor Freight, drill a small hole where it can be patched later, and inspect.

Good chance you will have to open the wall up to repair but inspect first just in case it's not the case.Edited by: r2millers

I would start by looking on the exterior of the rig at a point above where the spot is. Anywhere there is a penetration in the exterior siding could be where the leak is occurring. I would also look at the roof. The thing about water is it can travel so a leak may be somewhere away from where you see the bumps.
Good luck,
Lonnie

Another tool you can buy is a moisture meter. I just purchased one from Costco today for $35.
