Cracked Front Cap

Few months ago our trailer swiped a roof overhang at a gas station. The roof and awing were replaced under the insurance. Last week, I was washing the trailer to put it away for the winter and found a 10" crack on the front cap on the same side as the roof damage. I have called to see if we can get it fixed under the same claim but no answer yet. If or when it gets fixed will be a few weeks. I am asking what I can use to cover the crack until I get an answer on how its going to get fixed. At the moment, I have masking tape on it but its not going to last. Don't want to use duck tape as its to strong and could damage the fiberglass????? Any ideas would be great!!!

Seadog, how long did you have it on and did it do any damage when it was peeled off. I did think of it but not sure.

I left it on over the winter and when I took it off I used a heat gun it did come off in sections but no harm was done to the finish.

Finally got a response from the insurance company and they will add the crack repair to the past roof claim. Getting a appointment to get it fixed is next. Not going on any trips now and have winterized it so its no rush to get it back. Have the crack covered with masking tape and its working well.
