Cracks in Slide Exterior

Just noticed a problem with out 05 Inspire. On the Drivers side rear slide, I have two cracks that are running from the upper corners of the side window, up at an angle. the forward one goes to the edge of the slide and the rear one about half way.

Curious if this is a unique problem. If not, anyone have a suggestion on what causes it?

As far as repairs, I haven't looked close, but these aren't just cracks in the finish; they go deeper than that. Not sure if this is something any body shop can fix, or whether it needs someone familiar with motor homes.

thanks for any suggestions.

Hi Toni
You might give Jim a call at infinity in Sumner Wa. He had a country coach in there with the fiberglass panel off. They do get micro cracks which is not a structural problem but the cracks you explain sound to be more significant .

Yes they can be repaired but it is not inexpensive. You are in a good place (WA/OR area) with many options for getting that kind of work done.

County Coach Corp. and Premier, both in Junction City, OR are examples. I had a similar crack in my driver side near the slide. It runs from the corner of the slide frame down to the beltline. A local body shop (someone I know and trust) gave me an estimate of $1,500 to reglass and repaint. However, he could not guarantee it would not crack again since he felt (and I agree) that it was due to some flexing at that point. So, I covered the crack with some Eternabond tape and put a polished stainless louver over it and it looks like a vent. Cost me about $30. Unfortunately, that likely won't work in your case.
