Cracks in fiberglass around tail lights.

All I can come up with is wtf! How does one go about fixing this? How does this happen in a 2 year old rig?

Don't want to jinx myself, but have not seen anything like this on our 2011 Sunseeker 3170 DS nor have do I recall seeing it on other posts.

The only cracking I have read about is on the corner of the slides.

Here's one link, there are more I'm sure...

Corner fiberglass crack on Sunseeker 3170

Hope this helps???

Our Georgetown 328 TSF has similar cracks. Like you we were very concerned. Our dealer is in the process of repairing them. Fingers crossed

Just picked up our Coach. Our dealer did a phenomenal job on the cracks near the tail lamps. . Hats off to them.

I'm no body man. But it's my understanding they grind the cracks which looked like spider cracks. I'm sure they needed filled in and then repainted the rear area. They did a great job for us.
