Bowed interior wall

I own a 2018 Rockwood 2104s that developed a weird bow in the wall between kitchen area and bathroom. I winterized trailer when the outside temperature was around 80 degrees 2 weeks ago, I went inside this weekend to put some pest deterrents inside, the temperature was about 25 and noticed these two bulges in the wall, no leaks and never have been. Since it's winterized I did not level it. I noticed the bathroom door sticks and I have to lift up on it to latch. Could not being level cause the wall to bow? Or maybe the cold weather swing?

I guess that's going to be first step, thanks!

Maybe level/stabilize it and see what happens.

It's mainly the bulge in the wall adjacent to the bathroom as well as door. A picture would probably help me explain, but I see no way to do that?

Has the bathroom door swelled or is the frame no longer square? I’d check what happens if you level it.

Actually, there's no stabilizer Jack's down, just sitting on tires and tongue jack, it is leaning to the right, but not a lot. I wouldn't think that would be enough to bulge the wall. It's sitting on my gravel driveway

My guess is you have pressure where it shouldn't be. I experienced the bathroom door way out of line once. I retracted all the stabilizer jacks off the ground and the door was lined up perfectly again.

Is the trailer sitting relatively level? What is the pad made out of that the trailer is sitting on? Is the pad smooth and relatively level? Is the pad sloped one way or the other? What is touching the ground? Are any stabilizer jacks touching or only the tires and tongue jack? If the stabilizers are touching try retracting them all and then check the door again.
