We just noticed a crack in the sidewall of our 2007 Dolphin 5342.The crack is approx 6 in. long and starts at the corner of the refrigerator opening and extends under the awning arm. Has anyone noticed this on theirs/ National is out of business so is our warranty? Thanks

Hi Ken. Welcome to iRV2.com. Sorry to hear about your problem but I'm sure someone will come along soon with some help. We do hope you continue to visit us and tell us about your experiences, good or bad.

To help more, I've linked this topic to the National RV Owner's Forum in the Owner's Corner section. You may get more infrmation that way.

I have a few on mine small one's less then an inch by the tail lights. take a very small drill bit and drill a hole at each end of the crack to keep it from going any further.
I bought a repair kit at a boat store and used it to repair the small cracks I had.

John, Thanks for the advice.I loosened the awning rod,then drilled a3/8 in. hole to stop the crack from spreading, then kept putting creeping crack cure into it intil it would take no more. I think this will stop it. Can you beleive this happened to a 2007 rv with only 8000 miles.I should have kept the trouble free 2003 Winnebago. I hope this the last of a series of numerous problems including,refrigerator removed twice,roof water leaks,replaced frt tv with lcd,two times broken b/r slide out pins,replaced dvd player,etc.,etc. Thanks, Ken
