Crack in front nose piece

I have a 2006 Flagstaff 24' fifth wheel and the front nose piece/panel has developed a crack that extends from the bottom trim upwards towards the middle of the panel. It has been parked since last fall. I'm wondering if there is a way to fix it or will I need to take it to the factory to have the whole panel replaced, and would anyone know what that might cost? I have attached a photo for reference.
Thanks for any information anyone can share.

Have you checked your insurance? Just a thought.

Drill a small hole at both ends of the crack. This will prevent it from getting larger. If the cap is made of fiberglass, it can be repaired. If it is plastic, don't know about repairing it. If you are handy, you can purchase a fiberglass repair kit and do it yourself. If not, most auto body shops can repair it (a lot of fiberglass parts are put on cars). Hope this helps.

If it were me, I would make a serious effort to go to the Goshen Rally and fill out a Service form.

Went to a bike show here in Montreal a few weeks back and there was a company that repaired plastic and did a pretty good jod. I suggest you google in your area for Plastic repair or plastic fix and you will probably find a similar company in your part of the world... good luk....
