The only time I've ever seen that happen, not saying it is your cause, was when something bumped/hit it.

Is there any way you may have had a portable heater or something that exhausted heat close to this? Looks like the cracks on our Kamodo grill.

Oh, we had the same problem when we picked our unit up brand new. There was a too long screw fastening the generator tray to the front panel. It created a "star" like cracking pattern on the surface, but there was a definite center point.

We had something similar (but not as big), cause unknown, on the front cap of our '15. Fixed under warranty by S&S while at Camp Entegra

Yes we had stress fractures on both front and back endcaps of our 2015 Anthem though not to that degree. During PDI they called in the manufacturers of the caps to review. Entegra then fixed them for us.

We have stress cracks on the top of the rear cap on both the left and right side. Have on the list for our PDI.

Same with ours and will be fixed at S & S in June along with some paint issues.

Do you recall how many days it took to fix? I think the coach goes to Precision paint? We have a week scheduled for the PDI then a few extra days afterwards in case of a problem. Thanks

I'm thinking that our rig was at S&S about 5 working days. No work on the weekend, but Entegra put us up in Elkhart.

I have a small stress crack above my rear exhaust. I pointed this out to Entegra at the Tamps rally and they told me it was not covered by them even though there is no evidence of me hitting anything such as damage to the tail pipe. It is hard to see so I am just watching to determine if it will get bigger.
