Siding

Noticed the other day while towing my 2018 Forest River Wildwood that when I looked back at the camper I could see the siding bulging out. Should I be concerned and if so what should I do?

yes, you should be concerned. 9 times out of 10, the factory cut the panels short or the staples popped. Take it in for warranty.

Does anyone have a temporary fix recommendation? Ours came out of the front seal on the port side while in the badlands. Right now I went to town with Gorilla tape.

Can I just start popping in machine screws to hold until we are too our new destination? Thanks!

Raysr,are you sure your Rockwood has the SAME sides as what the OP is talking about? I have a WAG that the OP has "Panel Siding"! Youroo!!

Mine has a slight bulge on the upper panel since new. No leaks or issues with the trim back there so far. (2016 model) I have seen several the same way.
While checking the panels I did find the markers lights, and others, to be poorly sealed. I recommend you check all your exterior lights.
