Cracks in cab plastic near Velcro attachment points

We bought our Forester 3171 in December. On our trip this past weekend, I noticed that there are cracks next to the Velcro attachment points in the cab (where you attach the privacy curtain). Is this a Forest River or a Ford warranty issue?

Doesn't that come under the one year warranty?

Those are not Ford parts and they were installed by Forest River so it is a FR issue. It looks like someone seriously over tightened that screw!

I heard back from Forest River. It is their issue, not Ford's. We are trying to find a place other than Camping World to fix it.

We have the same crack too....and another one in the skylight over the shower. The dealer is fixing them. There were a lot of small issues like that on our new RV (2016 3051S). It seems like the quality control was lacking at the end of the production line. Nothing major....but enough of them to be a little annoying. Parts are being ordered and it will take several trips to the dealer to get everything repaired.
