Hi Clint, my 94 HR has the same thing in several spots. I am unsure about the external fix, but want to warn you that the spots you are seeing indicate that water has leaked in from somewhere. It gets between the aluminum and the thin plywood substrate, then eats thru. Look hard for the leaks and get them sealed, or your problem will grow. One leak I found was at the roofline by the forward awning support. Good luck, please post your solutions for all of us here on the forum, HarveyP

A common problem in that series of Endeavors. Our 94 36LE gas had the same thing. Starts out looking like a bubble as it was under a decal just aft of the driver door. Took my knife and burst the bubble and white powder was under it. Supposed to be and electrolysis created by moisture and the coating on the inside of the aluminum skin. Window behind the driver side couch had a leak, unnoticable from the outside or inside the coach. There was a 5yr. warranty on the skin. Brought it to Wakarusa and they replaced the skin on the whole driver side. While there they replaced all the moulding at the top and middle of the coach and didn't seal it well at the upper awning supports. In about 6mo. had another bubble 6" below the bolts. Brought it to Holiday World in Houston as I refused to bring it to Dixie in Baton Rouge. They replaced the whold passenger side skin again still under warranty and did a good job.
Hope this helps.
Dave

Electrolysis pitting was an issue on many aluminum motorhomes some 30+ years ago. The rear few feet of both sides of our late 70's Overland Class A was reskinned and two grounding straps installed. These woven metal straps connected to the aluminum skin and dragged on the road under the rig letting the static electrons pass to ground. Original pits showed up within first two years. Nothing over next four years we owned the motorhome. Hope this information is of help. Danny
