Bump in wall

Today I was washing my unit and noticed a bump in the wall above the left corner of my rear slide. Doesn't appear to be hollow and I was curious what is causing it? I'm not sure if it was there when I bought it..I never noticed it before. No cracks in that spot but I'm wondering if I should be concerned.
Here is a pic..

Hard to tell what's going on from the pic.
When I experienced delam on my previous tt you could push in the bump/bubble. If there is no give to it I wouldn't think that delam would be the problem.
If you get the chance it's probably worth letting your dealer look at it. For peace of mind if nothing else.

I think I will for sure. I'm a little worried about it

do you think something was on top of the slide when it was pushed in?

Nope. I always clean the tops and check before I slide them in. I'm hoping rv guy Might have an idea if he sees this thread. Before I store it for the winter I'll have the dealer look at it. I am oping it's nothing.

Kozzy - pretty sure you're looking at a seam between panels. Give me your floorplan and I'll check our wall layout to make sure. Assuming it's a seam, it's probably nothing more than cosmetic. However, when something shows up like this that didn't used to be there, it's always a good idea to have it checked out.

That's what I was thinking. But I want to be sure. It's a 318bhs. Thanks

i would also check the 4 corner jacks to make sure you haven't torqued one down too tight which could possibly twist the body,particularly at the narrowest points of the walls. i've seen a trailer at the campground which was jacked in excess on one corner and that resulted in the entry door becoming jammed and the siding above the door buckleing

Kozzy - did some checking. On both of your slides (front and back) there is a panel seam within a couple of inches of the left corner. This is surely what you are seeing. Could there be an issue of sorts? Yes. But, we are inclined to think it's more cosmetic than structural. Your dealer should be able to easily tell, though.

My jacks come down together , and I don't think I am over touring them...I lower them until I see the camper just start to rise, then I stop. This seems to provide the best stability. Plus the motors start to lag down so I can tell weight is on them and I stop..

Rv guy thanks mill have the dealer look at the end of the season. I checked it and there is nothing moving there when I try and push on it...but I just don't remember noticing it when I bought it either which worries me if it is something that developed....
