The last I heard, cost for sidewall replacement was approx $4k per side plus shipping cost.
Hopefully someone else may know of a way to fix delamination, but it's my understanding that it will just get worse.
I too had delamination issues that appeared to be fixable (dealer was going to inject glue and clamp - mine was on a rear slide.)
After getting in touch with forest river, the dealership and RV company ended up replacing the whole back panel. It was much worse than first appeared and even though I was out of warranty forest river and dealer came good for all the repairs.
I plead my case, I live in Ontario, store the trailer inside winters and had complained earlier of a wet rear slide (inside). I'm sure all this helped my case.
Bottom line, the repairs were made and I am a much happier camper. I would consider forest river products again because of this. If the manufacturer didn't stand behind their product I would have scratched them off my possible future purchase list!
Thanks to my favourite dealer in London and Forest river! It's good to see people standing behind the products they make and sell.
