My wife would like to put up wallpaper in our RV bathroom. I checked the mirror and it looks like it maybe glued onto the wall.

Does anyone have suggestions on how to take off the mirror without it breaking?

Thanks!

Dan

I use braided fishing line to cut glue if itís like a silicone type. It cuts cleanly without breaking or putting too much stress on glass

100% certain that is a water leak. Guessing itís under a front side window but regardless of location you need to address the problem ASAP. Probably no serious damage yet.

Ok, now that everyone confirms itís water intrusion and it may be a leak or maybe someone left the window open and it rained.

Now, what are the solutions to repair?

No such luck on the open window idea. Definitely water coming through from behind. Iíd guess there has been a fair amount of leakage. But I also think youíll be fine if you find and fix the leak promptly. If itís beneath a window Iíd start on a ladder and very closely examine the perimeter. Assuming the window is held in by a rubber gasket youíre looking for even a very small gap anywhere. Maybe even use windshield sealer around the edge regardless. Windshield sealer is like a very watery silicone that flows where water could go before it sets up. Comes in a tube and is available at any auto parts store. Also check for clear weep holes along the bottom track if itís a sliding window. The procedure is pretty similar if youíre looking at a frameless window. You can use urethane caulk around these though which is thicker, like silicone. Itís sticky stuff. Once you are certain the windows are sealed work outward and upward looking at every seam, seal, penetration and joint. Use urethane caulk on the sides and self leveling lap sealant on the roof. I recommend doing the inspection and repair every 3 or 4 months. I almost always find something that needs addressing with each inspection. Donít delay or you risk rot and/or mold inside the walls and floor. Good luck.

Awol op

It drives me nuts to read posts that get diligently answered by knowledgeable motor home owners only to see the original writer go awol. I wish these people would just Google their questions.
