I'm only thinking other than replacing the whole side the would repair it like the fiberglass on a vet. I really don't have a clue just guessing. I am taking mine in during the off season so I haven't gotten any feed back yet.

Update on repairs to Crusader 295RST
RV returned to factory and repaired at a factory authorized body shop. Walls are Filon. Some repairs involved skin replacement, and turned out acceptable. Other repairs involved patching,sanding, and painting over the Filon. These repairs did not turn out acceptable as they are easily detected. Factory has requested RV returned to Manufactuer for evaluation. Will post again when resolved.

I'd like to know exactly where on the trailer you are seeing these? On slides, coach walls near slide openings - top bottom etc. ? Having the same trailer I'd like to know what to look for. Also what the cause is. What is flexing and where - frame - filon itself? Thanks for any additional info.

Just noticed another spiderweb on the rear by the ladder. I am contacting dealer now to find out how I get this repaired.

not just prime time problem, had them on both cedar creeks touring editions and my Ridgeview 360, all repaired at dealer with some type of factory approved filler and repainted.

Update: My cracks have been fixed by a body shop. It looks okay but the work area does stand out more then the cracks did. Like bondo on a new car but the cracks are gone.

Unless they did something to reinforce the areas I fear this fix is only going to be a temporary one
