Another problem in the bathroom

So after a tow I noticed these cracks in the ceiling between the shower skylight and the outside wall. No water leaking in. One crack looks like there was something put on it probably from the factory. What should I use to fill these? They are not noticeable but I sure do t want them to get worse.

If I was you, I would pull the interior skylight shroud. When I pulled mine because it was cracked, the factory had the ceiling panels flexed to far and cracked the skylight shroud around one of the screw holes. My guess is they flexed yours to far too. Drill a hole at the end of the crack to stop the crack. Fill with color matching caulk to fill the cracks.
I would pull that shroud though to see what is going on.

thanks Crunchman. I thought about drilling a hole as I knew that might stop the crack. I don't think it would be more than 1/4 inch deep, right? I will check that skylight shroud too. I had not considered that as perhaps causing the problem. This is why I asked on here!

The ceiling material is just as thick as the walls but with a different top coat. All of the walls and the ceiling panels are just an 1/8" luan coated with a texture or wall paper. You will see what I am describing when you pull that skylight shroud down.
Keep us posted.

Does the camper have any warranty left? If so I wouldn't touch it until you have it checked by the dealer... just sayin.

Good idea. We have an extended warranty on the camper. I will take my photos to the dealer -- they are close to us -- and see what they suggest. I hope it isn't anything big.
