Out of storage!

Just took our coach out of storage and discovered a small surface crack on the side (see pics). It was covered all winter. Question, what it the best way of repairing it before it gets worse?

I'm hoping you'll have more knowledgable responses, but I know in some application you can stop the advance of a stress crack by carefully drilling a hole (say 3/16") at the very end of the crack. Of course, repairing the crack is another story.

You might want to tape the crack to keep moisture out until it's repaired.

cheers,
Joopy

Before you do any repairs, you need to determine what caused the crack. Without correcting the problem/cause, the crack will most likely reappear after repairs.

As far as determinating the cause, we don't know, it came with it (she's almost 15yrs old). I have no experience in body work. Just curious as to what can be done to repair it.
