Trouble with rippled nose cap

I own a 2011 Lance 861 Truck Camper and the fiberglass nose cap is rippled where the front lights are. Anyone experience the same? What is the remedy?
Thank You

You might find some answers for this at LOA. Just a thought.

Mine has delaminated also, but it doesn't make it leak. There is no practical fix.

The ripples are caused by delamination but do not pose a threat to water integrity. Had them on my Lance 1120 (1999) and was told by RV center not worth fixing as only a cosmetic issue. Think of you camper as a shoe box that is twisting from side to side as you go down the road. Things are bound to move, not only in truck campers but all campers, tag alongs, fifth wheels, etc. Sooner or later something is going to let loose. Just a fact of owning an RV. If it is not leaking, I suggest you just live with it.

Thank you for the info. It's nice to know that someone else has had the same problem. I had come to the same conclusion that it is strictly cosmetic since there are no leaks anywhere, but had not figured out that it was due to delamination. I had checked the caulking everywhere just prior to this happening last summer while travelling. The camper is in super shape and hardly needed any caulking. Again thank you.

I'd be a bit leery of the no leak remark.
If the skin has delaminated at the clearance light location only.
I'd remove the lights and look for leakage between the outer skin and the insulation.
You wouldn't notice any moisture infiltration inside the coach until it is to late to easily remedy the problem.
You will likely find evidence of moisture behind the lights.
Remedy: Remove all the clearance lights then replace them ALL with sealed LED's properly installed with a good quality glue. You will never have to deal with this problem again.
If it were my coach, I'd be pissed...........
