2013 240BR delamination

I purchased a slightly used unit in 2014 from a FR dealer "as is with no warranty". There are two bubbles about 3 x 15 inches on the front panel at about the surveyor logo.

I store this unit in a shed where the front is exposed to afternoon sun but little or no rain. I've checked the roof and there are no leaks or cracks in caulking.

Q1- would hot sun cause this or is it a water intrusion only that causes delamination, and
Q2- Is there any point in pursuing FR warranty repair?

Thanks for your input.

Agree with turbs, but I'd still get in touch with dealer and forest river and see what they say. Can't hurt. Just keep in mind the as is no warranty thing. I think there are special ways to help so delam from spreading, but I have no experience first hand. Again, ask your dealer.

Thanks for the replys. I will check with the service mgr at the dealership. Maybe they have a good dent and scratch man fix to try. I guess replacing the panel is expensive.

Just a thought. I store my water hoses in the forward compartment. The hot afternoon sun may cause any evaporation from moisture there to be drawn up into the luan.
