Rotten dashboard 2010 FR Georgetown 357QS

Hello,
While driving our 2010 FR Georgetown 357QS up 101 in Cali, the vinyl dashboard cover blew up like a balloon and a bunch of nasty brown stuff stated to blow into the cockpit. Pulled back cover to reveal what appears to be a totally rotted (garbage) wooden dashboard. Looks like it must be water damage. We can see through to the engine compartment. What a mess. Anyone else? Suggestions? This is clearly not gonna be a band-aid fix. Ill always be stunned that these rigs appear to be built from spit and tissue.
Thanks in advance.

Happy Motoring,

Hello!
We are not. Would it matter to the factory?
Cheers,

UPDATE

I called FR, in Elkhorn. They were pleasant but largely useless. They did refer me to a shop in Ventura. My wife and I took it there. Long story short, they quoted us $20,000.00! WTF ever. Still shocked that ALL RVs are built out of spit and tissue. That being said, I was also embarrassingly ignorant of the need for near CONSTANT maintenance. After we walked off the lot laughing, I decided that Im gonna take a shot a repairing it myself, resealing all of the possible leak points and seeing what happens. Ill take pics and keep you all posted. Wish me luck.

Cheers,

Yep, it would.
But I'm sure your fix will be useful to others.
