While washing my 2005 Sightseer 29R last night I noticed what appeared to be bumps in the fiberglass skin. There are about 6 or 7 bumps abut the size of a nickel located to the rear of the drivers side mirror and just below the window. I didn't notice them before but it's possible I over looked them and the light was just right to make them visible. Another possibility is I have a leak and water is causing the lumps to form. I called my dealer today and they said bring it in and they will look at it but we are going away on Friday so it will be a few weeks till I can get it into the dealer.

Does anyone have experience with something like this on their rig and know what caused it. I'll still take it to the dealer when I can but if it is cosmetic then I won't worry about it but if it's caused by a leak then I need to get the leak stopped ASAP.

We had what might be the same thing on our Tiffin Allegro Bus. We took it back to the factory and they said it was bad fiberglass and they will be replacing the entire exterior side wall.

My 2000 Adventurer had pieces of gelcoat about 1/8 to 1/4 inch in diameter pop off the sidewalls. They were scattered all over the rig, and the problem was common to a batch of fiberglass used in the Spring of 2000. The ultimate solution was to return the RV to the factory in Forest City, where both sidewalls were replaced. Hope this isn't your problem, but if it is Winnebago should fix it properly.

Before you leave call Winnie Customer Service, make them aware of the problem, Document the call. Don't just leave your problem to the dealer...Have a safe trip
