Basement doors

We have a 06 Tourmaster that has bubbles in spots on the tops of the basement doors. It looks like rust forming under the paint, but I did not think the door were made of something that would rust. I would think if it was rust it would be at the bottom not the top. Has anyone had this and what to do to stop it?
thanks
Adrian and Johnnie

Can you post a picture of the area? I think the door skin is aluminum but electrolysis could effect it like steel rusting. Make certain your coach does not have any hot skin 120 vac leakage to the frame and that the equipment ground is isolated to the power cord.

Use a volt meter to check for any ac voltage from earth ground to metal body or frame of coach when the coach is plugged into shore power, the inverter is in use and when the generator is running. Even a small amount of ac current can cause electrolysis.

Is this a molded fiberglass door? We had those on our '94 HR, and 2 of them got to the point I had to remove them, dig out all the loose material, then fill and repaint. No idea what caused the problem. These were molded from a fiberglass reinforced plastic of some kind. There's no metal or anything else there that might corrode there?
