Has anyone had trouble with exterior door with inside panel cracking? One of our doors is cracking around the window and top. cracks running across the door.

Is this camp new or did you buy used?.....Do you have trouble openning and closing the door?...Look at the door frame, is there damage?...I have never seen anything like this. It looks like the door was forced to operate with something in the way, maybe by the way of the wind.
Check the hinge see if they are loose, and open the door and look a long the edge to see if the door is bowed.

We bought it new in Jan 2009 on our last trip in Oct 2010 we noticed the first crack in upper left corner. The door opens and closes and latches good. This week when de winterizing our trailer that is when we noticed the new cracks. We live in the bay area and it is not that cold so it was not freeze or snow problem. Yes very strange......the first crack we thought perhaps some rubbing in that corner like the screen door but could not see where that could happen.... How could the door be bowed?

The question you ask, "How Can The Door Be Bowed", I woundered myself because on my 2006 8314 the bed room door on my camper is bowed in the center where the lock and handle is and it is bowed outward, once i close the door then i have to push in the bowed area so that the latch will catch then i can lock the dead bolt and i can see that it is bowed when the door is closed the door is not flush with the extrior wall of the camper. The door is still like that from day one when i bought the camper new. Maybe the door was screwed up when they made it and they just slapped it on anyway.
I just thought i would put that out there for you to check because of the way my door is, but i have no cracks at least not at this time.

Cracked door interior of exit door

Thank you for your imput. I am talking with the dealer and talked with Forest River but I have the feeling it is a waste of time. I have found the manufacture of the door and sent them a message.
