Seams on the side

I noticed that on the side of my MH I can see perfect lines that run top to bottom on the MH. They are spaced like panels about four feet apart. This is a 2011 RB and I bought it new last April. I never noticed this before and not sure if this is normal or if I have a problem brewing. The lines are smooth and you can't feel anything but in the sun they really pop out. Hopefully this is something that is common with all the FR MH and its something that I just didn't see before. After the roof issue I'm a little nervous. Let me know if you would please.

Phil, I haven't noticed it. Sometimes just the way the light shines on it can cause such an effect. It's always possible you just never noticed it before.

BTW, Mitch told me if I have an roof problems related to the bad batch of roofing they got from their supplier, just to let him know.

Boowho??

Boo thanks for the reply. Keep a close eye on that roof. The cracks are hard to see.

Mitch advised I watch it carefully too. He said the cracks will be around openings that were cut during roof manufacture; like for vents, etc.

I'd like to go up and look around myself, even bought a $365 16 foot extension ladder (that compacts down to less than 3 feet) just for the purpose of going up there as necessary.

Now the DW panics every time I get near that ladder.

Boowho??

Phil, i have a 2014 RB and can see the panel lines exactly as you described, so can only guess they are made that way.
