I would recommend contacting the palomino warranty department and send them pics. That would guarantee that the factory knows about your issue. Oftentimes you cant trust that your dealer will get to it in a timely manner and notify the individual in charge to cover this issue in the future.
This is something to observe and keep track of, you dont want it getting worse.
There are ways of "fixing" it that dont require replacing a side wall. Especially since its under a decal. But that requires some skill that a lot of dealers and even factory workers dont have.
Good luck and i hope you find satisfactory answers to your issue.

I sent Kim in the warranty department pics today. Hopefully I'll hear back from him tomorrow. I can make a new decal out of flat black vinyl. I'm not super worried. I have options. But I'm hoping it's covered under warranty.

Good to know that someone up there knows how to fix them. They are pretty common in the boating world. Color match can be an issue sometimes and it takes some time tinting the gelcoat. I spend alot of time tinting whites.
Thats pretty good that they could take care of that, that quickly!

Probably too late since it's been almost a year since you bought it.
But you could plead your case to the warranty people and explain that the dealer didn't advise you of it.
But I believe that it's referred to on FR brochures.

I might try to call them and ask. I bought the first forest river camp trailer they ever sold at my local dealer. They just started carrying FR units. There weren't any brochures. I looked through all my paperwork that came with the trailer and there isn't any extended warranty offer.

Many dealers don't inform customers of it because they don't make money on it, like they do the 3rd party warranties.

Whites are tough.The grey was easy,opened up a new 1 gal can of gel coat,poured out about a pint,mixed it up and shot it on,perfect match.Then he says" do you have any use for this?"(the remaining 3.5 quarts).I said "sure",he left it under my rear steps,came back an hour later Blocked it ou,buffed it and done!
