i just replaced all the walls in my double wide mobile. looked great, then i primed the new dry wall and have seams that are buckling. not all the seams are doing this. the drywall is attached right, scerws, tape, studs are all there and i did this job by the book. what could be causing the buckling? it's more like the mud drys, then when i prime it cuases the seam to pop out.

What sort of tape and compound did you use?
When tape pops up, it can be due to a dry spot under the tape.
What was your screw pattern on the seams?
What material is the drywall attached to?
How many coats of compound did you put over the tape?

Was it paper tape or fiberglass tape?

paper tape
Cut out a section of a failed seam and diagnose it. Has the tape lifted off the surface? Is there a hollow area under the tape?

no-could i be using too much pressure on the wall when i paint? wrong roller?
If the tape was properly applied and there are no structural issues, I doubt it's a painting procedure.
