Possibly the screw was pushing out on the outer layer of luan and it took a little time for it to go back. Hopefully it doesn't return.

One thing you should not do on any of the fiberglass laminated walls is look down them at a very slight angle, especially this time of year when the sun is low in the sky. You will see more waves, bumps, and seams than you will ever care to see. These are thin pieces of foam and wood, not metal. All of them are far from perfect.

Our windjammer has a bubble above the water heater. Looks like the glue didn't bond. Our dealer said they are going to fix it in their body shop. All is under warranty. Should I be worried it isn't going back to factory?

It won't hurt to let them try...that may be your only option for now if that is what they are being directed to do by Rockwood. There is a method to repair using an injectable epoxy. I would say once they do the repair it will be up to you to determine if its acceptable or not from a cosmetic standpoint if the bubble is rebonded. I wouldn't worry too much about it.

Quality control issue if you ask me?

The more and more I read about Crusader issues the more and more I question whether to get one
