Exterior walls

So I'll try this, has any one had any thing like this happen? Not so much the putty but the bulge in the wall, the shadow show's where it sticks out.

When did you notice this? Is it better or worse when hitched or unhitched? The sealer "squishing" out usually means there is some sort of "flexing" going on.

Wasn't long after we bought it, seems like it is getting worse. I tried to measure for frame flex when unhooked/hooked, it didn't show anything a couple month's ago. I'm gonna check it again. Wonder what my local non-selling dealer will say.

Looks like mine except a little worse,well my dealer(the one that got the sale) told me that was the heat pushing the sealant out . Take a 4 or 6' level and set it under the rail, mark the side of the camper(I used a pencil) with it unhooked then hitch it up and remark and see what the difference between the two marks are mine was 3/8" using a 4' level more then I want to see but I just have to keep a eye on it to make sure I don't leave the trailer at a stop light thats just a check for the flexing. I would call Primtime and the dealer to let them know whats going on because its not good, I hope you have better luck then I did with Primetime as I received absolutely no help from them or my dealer. Good luck and keep us posted. Keepaeyeonit

I would call PT again and ask for Rick Koelndorfer or Shane Imus. They both have been good to work with.
