Paint check on rear bumper 2012 378TS

Does this sound familiar? I've got veins of paint checking about the size of my fist on rear bumper roughly same height as turn signals. Would like to know if there's any hope of FR taking care of this since it's likely going to spread and obviously a an issue with paint finish

Have not heard anyone here having any issues with paint on their motorhomes.
Is the paint checking and separating from the fiberglass?
Is it the clear coat or the actual colored paint?
How old is your Georgetown?
If older than a year probably not.
Have you taken any pictures of it?

Can't hurt to send them an email with attached pictures and see what they say.

Could be some fiberglass cracks and more than likely won't be covered under warranty. The rear cap is fiberglass and the only way to fix them is to grind them out with a dremel and use body filler and then paint. Use to build custom boats so I know the process. Check with a boat place and they would be the best to give a quote, just be you description sounds like approx. $250.00 fix, as long as you can get the paint. If you can get some pictures could advise you better.
