I have the same stress cracks on my Challenger, short of having Thor replace the corner trim pieces, I simply seal the cracks and watch them to insure they don't grow any bigger.

Our 2007 has no issues with these cracks. Has to be the "armstrong" screw tightening...

Daybreak Classic also has cracks on all four corners. Are we sure its tight screws and not stress related?

My 2007 Daybreak has them too. I have sealed the cracks with caulking. Been meaning to look at getting replacements, but it is never on my mind at the right time. Seems to be an epidemic.

Ours has cracked on one but it is in the V at the center away from any screws as if the whole thing was forced to comply.
I cannot supply a photo as it is inaccessible it is in storage.

This company may have the replacements. They are listed in the slide out seal section www.pellandent.com

Source for replacement corner caps?

I know this thread is a little old, but I am having the same issue on my 2006 Damon Daybreak and I was wondering if anyone has found a supplier for these slide corner caps. All the ones I find online are different than the ones used on my RV.

Have a 1996 Daybreak that has the same issues. I put clear silicone in (does not yellow stuff) and have no issues. I was thinking of contacting Thor and see if they still make them. If not I will take them off and see if I can do anything from the inside.

Funny that this should come up again. I just lost one this week. Don't know how to find it.

I asked the same question a while back. Here was the post with a reply of a place to find them and a part number.

FYI.. I never did replace them just put a seal over them.
