Water damage to my shamrock hybrid?

Hello all,
I just purchased a 2011 shamrock from a dealer in Indianapolis. I was told not leaks and like new. The camper is in great shape. The other day I noticed a couple slightly raised areas on the front bunk (this is on the outside) in the lower right and left corners. Does anyone know if this is water damage?

sounds like you're talking about delam on the front bunk door.
usually happens by water pooling around the hinge area and wicking into the sandwich construction of the bunk door material.
or poor sealing along the bunk door frame.

if it's delam, then there was a leak or the previous owner trapped canvas in the seals when closing up, causing water to get in.

bottom line: get the dealer to put a new bunk door in.

Just had a new bunk door put in myself. If I knew what I was looking for when buying my used unit, I wluld have had the dealer put one in BEFORE I bought it.

I got mine at Rousseau's RV in Lakeville Ma. If I recall, with it shipped inside a delivery camper, total was about 500 installed.

I'm starting to see some delam on bottom of my 05 ForrestRiver Shamrock 23ss. It will be a spring job I'm handy so I feel I can do this
