Warping outer shell

Just noticed this on my 2013 Coachman 29 DDS. Checked inside walls and ceiling thinking it was water but no stains or sign of rot.

So outer skin separating? Does it need repaired?

That's up to you. But the cause of water intrusion into the cap, needs to be determined. Most likely bad roof caulking on the front.
How often do you inspect the roof caulking? Should be done a minimum of every 6 months.

I donít think the links worked correctly. Sorry for that. Google it and there are lots of articles about it. Seems like adhesion comes to mind with sun and humidity into play. I guess I am just hoping it isnít water. That is always my worst nightmare. Good luck.
