It just broke.

I don't know what happened. It just appeared this way.

That sucks. Is it at the front? Maybe some tire debris got it?

Something tells me there is just a bit of info missing here? Like a pic of the truck that may have got a bit close to an open door..

Good ole nova scotia-----------------

Good ole Nova Scotia winter road salt!!!! The drain holes must not have been open in the bottom of the door. It would pay to caulk around the door seam to prevent this from occurring again.

Put a temp patch over the damaged part, have it replaced next August at the
2014 factory rally!

Looks like a tailgate either fell down or was left down while turning to the right.

I think you missed his big old grin and if you look carefully at the pics the door has been hit and it actually broke. The frame is bent along the bottom left edge.

Ya can't fool Old Coot. Been around the block too many times.

Now, do you think Forest River will send me a replacement. (free of charge). After all, I didn't get any of the free repairs at Goshen. Too far to travel.

Don't think road salt would bend the alum frame out and dent the foam.

Ok, another solution to the damage! Maybe "duel" wheels ate it

Looks like water damage (delamination) to me.
The surface material is delaminating and deteriorating.

I take that back! I took a closer look and the door did impact something.
The door metal is curled up. (closed hard on something inside?)

I see a new door in your future in any case.
