Exterior Fiberglass

We have a 2010 Fleetwood Discovery, we purchased it new in 2011. The exterior fiberglass is cracking. Looks like a boiled egg that has been dropped. I understand that Fleetwood had fiberglass vendor issues for a couple years including 2010. Any firm information on this issue

No, but you should contact Fleetwood directly on the issue first. Corning fiberglass had some bad fiberglass which was used in several RV brands but I can't remember what years were involved or which RV manufacturers. I would first see what Fleetwood says about it because it is a hugely expensive repair if it has to be replaced.

The Crane Composites (subsidiary of Corning) fiberglass issue was resolved by 2010 and didn't look like your cracked egg description anyway. It affected dark painted colors only and resulted in tiny pits or short (1/4") hairline cracks under the paint.

Your description sounds like stress cracks. Are they all over or just in a few places?
