Sorry I did not understand the issue, but herk came to the rescue, as he often does!
When they cut the plywood for this application, there is always one rough edge and one smooth one. Why wouldn't they put the smooth edge on top so this wouldn't happen? Or, better yet, quickly sand the edge?
Could it be that the factory simply doesn't care enough? Seems to be the case more often that not.
As for your spider cracks in the fibreglass, there could be something underneath pushing out. But quite often it just tends to do that. Unfortunately, there is no easy fix.

Further to herk's suggestion, I would first tap down all of the sharp wood splinters that are trying to poke through the rubber roofing, before you apply the eternabond. If left, they might work their way through the repair as well.

Since you do not use a signature line with your truck and camper information in it (hint; hint); I was working off the information in your profile.

In other words the slide could be out of adjustment. Rubbing too hard in that area.
Hard to tell from the pics but it looks like wipers or seal could be rubbing hard from the edge to few inches in. If the wood is rough in that area you might want to get it smooth out or it will continue to wear.
