Rear-end moulding/trim pieces cracked

The rear-end trim pieces around the outside edge of the MH are cracked all the way though in several spots. I just bought it used, so not sure how long they have been that way...or what cause them. I do not think water intrusion will occur, as it seems the fiberglass wall behind them would be sealed; however, it looks like crap.

Has anyone had this same issue? What steps have you tried to seal them? Any thoughts?

Thanks.

I am having the same problem. They tell me not to replace as they will be cracked again in a year. A couple of body shops have indicated that they did not install with enough clearance for screws to allow expansion and contraction. Have you found a solution yet?

maybe re-glass the panels from the back side for strength ?
ive done a little glass work before and we would glue down a piece of flap stock steel the glass over it for strength .
just a suggestion
