Several months ago, I read about an Alpiner who had some roof problems. As I was washing the roof today, I noticed a 10" jagged crack on the curve of the roof above the passenger side bedroom window. I have an '06, FDDS.
There is an 1/8" gap at the widest. It appears that it could become a longer crack. I have filled it with silicone for now, but wondered what course of action I should follow. There are several 'folds' on various parts which looks like it was not straightened out during layout and could develope into future problems.

I had a crack above my entry door years ago. I took it to a coach shop (Desert West)in Phoenix and they fixed and painted it under warranty.
