I did not see this post sooner. Very interesting. I had the front drivers area done on my new to me coach last year and frame was not painted in my cc in the wall. Rust all around drivers window which seems to be common. The owner of the shop has seen other CCs and thought it should be painted. But Iíve seen the original brochure on my coach and section of wall they show has frame clearly not painted. So the question is did I have delam due to no paint or a leak? I donít know. I only have one side with delam and not the other. I was told my delam was from heating and cooling condensation in the walls but why only one side? Will the other side fail too? Iím not sure Iím buying that as I think there would be a lot more CCs with this issue. There was roof damage hidden by previous owner so small leak could have traveled from there? To this day Iím Still trying to figure it out. Still have delam on that side further back along frame. My drivers side main slide has delam but itís definitely due to a leak! Nothing on passenger side.

I see the see the same thing. Keep in mind that where the tubing is bonded to the exterior wall there is no insulation. My shop's metal roof does the same thing where it is insulated, the wood shows through. Not an issue at all.

Warm moist air flows to cold drier air. Thatís why we put vapor barrier on the outside of homes in the south, and inside up north.
IMO living full time in an RV in a cold climate will eventually lead to rust, and delamination on these steel frames.
If you do....maintaining moisture levels inside is key. Plus keep your heat ducts pointed toward the center of the coach. Metal sweats.
