Mini Lite 2109s Question

We have a 2013 2109s and between Memorial Day and this past week, we noticed a bubble in the skin on the front of the camper. At first we thought it was water but after further investigating, I don't think it is. I've attached some pictures and am curious if anyone else has experienced this problem and if anyone may know what would cause it and possibly how or if it can be fixed.

Thanks in advance for any help

It might be delamanition(sp). We had a problem on our 2104 2 years ago. Luckly for us it happened on our way to Goshen. Rather than try to repair they replaced the entire front of our tt. It looked real funny looking thru the unit with no front. Dont know what a dealer would do, if you are out of warrenty it will cost $$. If there is no damage inside maybe you can hold off til the 16 Goshen.

We bought it through Wana RV in Shipshewana with the full bumper to bumper warranty. So I'll have to contact them to see how to proceed with getting it fixed. Thanks for the info.

Have not seen that on our 2015, but you can bet I'll be watching. Don't think I'd worry too much. Might be someone who does fiberglass repair that would have a fix cheaper than a camper dealership. Still would contact Forest River, warrenty or not. That should not happen.

Since I posted this we brought the camper home from storage and the raised spot went from being in direct sunlight all day to just part of the day and the bump has gone down some. It's not completely gone but has defiantly flattened back out some. So I'm really thinking it has something to do with the skin overheating. Washing it today, we found one other small area that has a slight bump to it. I'll be contacting Forest River just to ask if it's something we should watch for since these mini lites are very thin skinned.

I have a 2012 haven't seen this issue so far. But I would agree looks like a delamination issue. I have seen this on boat hulls in the past. Maybe a syringe with epoxy can be injected into this area and rolled flat if it continues to be an issue.

I have the same issue but on the right side. Local dealer thinks it is water damage but I see no leaks or gaps on the roof.
