Delamination Dilemma

Well... my delamination fear has come true. I am adamant about checking and sealing the roof of my 29FBSS and cannot find where any water may have leaked. My gut tells me it could have been from a summer of Direct sunlight and heat during storage. So... what is my next step? To fix or not? Any other options? Maybe cut and replace matching pieces on both sides of front window? Any ideas or suggestions appreciated.

Did you check the marker light. They are notoriously known for leaking.

Marker light was removed and resealed. Never thought to check in the past. Thanks for bringing it up so others are aware.

X2. by the looks of the delam, it looks like it may have originated at the marker light.

I added a bead of silicon behind the marker lights and gasket.

They seal them with Proflex sealant. I do not recommend silicone because it will not reliably stick to the wall material.

Proflex on the walls; Dicor lap sealant on the roof only.

I would make an appointment with the factory in Millersburg Indiana. They will repair that like it was new very reasonably.
