Mini-Lite 1905 Rear Wall Bubble

I was putting the trailer up for winter and noticed a bubble on the rear wall (pics, hopefully, attached!). This is a 2018 and we have owned it for 14 months. I've contacted the dealer for advice, but also have read in these forums that FR warrants their walls for 2 years. All the seals on the roof, in particular the area above the bubble, look like they always have in previous inspections. There is a marker light above the bubble but there is no evidence of bubbling near the light. I haven't removed the light to check for evidence of water getting in there. The bubble is probably 5-6' below the light and about 1' inside the right side corner. All the corner seals look good as well.

My question to the FR forum brain trust is if there is any truth to the 2 year warranty of the walls? I would like to have some factual information if the dealer pushes back and says sorry but the 12 month warranty is up.

Also, if this isn't covered under warranty, is there a fix short of replacing the entire rear wall? The bubble is about 3" tall and maybe 9" wide.

I can't answer the 2 year wall warranty but with the de-laminations that can be fixed first is to find where the water intrusion is coming from and stop it. There are several methods used to reattach the bubbled area. Try google or U-tube for fixing de-lamination of RV walls. In less serious situations like yours it is well within a DIY project. Do the research and good luck.
