Smile Country Coach Slide Room Body Panel Cracks

I have a 2005 Country Coach Inspire with four slides - just turned 20 K. I noticed a large crack in the driver side bedroom slide body panel that runs up to the window and then a smaller crack on the other side of the window. I have been concerned about moisture entering the slide room wall and what structural issues may be involved as well. I asked the folks at Oregon Motor Coach Center about it and they advised that it can't be repaired and the only way to cure it is to have a new room built. I'm planning a long summer trip and don't want to get stranded with a problem. I'm looking for whatever experience folks have had and what, if anything, they have done with it. Thanks.

Denny

I'd try to seal the crack...if water gets in the crack you will have a delam problem from the perosity

A new room??? Yikes!! You mean they don't think it can be re-skinned? I'd find a second opinion.

Could you post a clear picture of the cracks? IT may help in finding a solution.
