I found the crease over the passenger door had about 23 inch crack along the edge. I cleaned and applied leveling lap sealant. I repainted after 48 hours. I'll let you know.

Thanks for the info. Would you be able to highlight on the picture or in words where you found the crack? I'd like to keep an eye on that. Thanks!

Water leak

Looking at the photo, the leak is along the width of the cap running length-wise front to rear, about 2 ft long grey line. Where the bottom trim cap mates with the sidewall. I saw the paint line cracked so I investigated and noticed as I pushed on wall the bottom gap opened. I used toothpicks to open the gap after cleaning it with scraper. Then applied self leveling lap sealant, it crept into the gap from the toothpicks. When I removed toothpicks it appeared to fill in nicely and squeezed excess out. Waited about 12 hours and trimmed excess and then painted with leftover touch ups from FR.
