lines in fiberglass.

We picked up our new 30hds this past weekend. We love everything about it. However I Noticed in only one place on entire camper, looks like vertical very small lines? There located to the right of the door about 4 inches either side Where awning is attached. Will try to post photos. Is this something to worry about? Should I try a wax to see if it will go away? They don't just wipe off

Almost looks like brush strokes in the fiberglass gel coat, not sure how that would happen. I looked at two 30HDS's recently that had flaws, one was the unit that I had put a deposit on. I switched my deposit to a different 30HDS and it has not come in yet. Be sure though that I will look it over with a fine tooth comb when it does come in. I doubt that those lines are anything to be concerned about but I would keep an eye on it for sure.

Next time I'm at dealer I'll ask them. Thanks for the advice. My 30hds is fine other than the lines in gelcoat. We love the layout. Lots of cabinet space!

Definitely a good looking TH. Are you towing it with your F-250? and if so how does it do and what weight distribution hitch are you using? I will be towing mine with a 2014 Chevy 2500HD with Equalizer WDH. I've been concerned with the heavy tongue weight wondering how much the rear end will squat.

Pulls great with f250. Have equalizer hitch 1400 rated on bars. We actually pulled camper home with almost 1/2 tank of fresh water. Thought dealer emptied it... it pulled great and didn't squat truck to bad. A note: we may have slightly less tounge weight. In toy hauler we have the party deck, and walk thru dinette with bed above. We really love the 30hds.

Those are small cracks in the gel coat. Get a hold of your dealer and schedule an appointment to have it fixed. It will be covered under warranty.

Bullet bob, after they fixed the cracks in gel coat, it looked good for a few months, now there coming back. I've been on contact with diane daly and I believe camper is going back to factory in march? Not sure what repair method will be used this second time
