Tire failure symptom?

I have 16" load range E tires on a 35' Cruise Aire. One tire, less than 3 years old with less than 10,000 miles at speeds not exceeding 60mph has an indention on the sidewall, running in the direction of rim to tread, about 2-1/2" long, 3/4" wide, 1/4" deep. Is this a possible sigh of impendiong sidewall failure?

Is this something that appeared recently, or has it been there since the tire was new? Sometimes these are just blemishes that come right out of the tire mold, though not typically that deep. Go to a dealer for that brand of tire and have them inspect it. They should remove the tire from the wheel and look at the inside - outside appearances don't mean a whole lot.
