Your right, but with my stick and tin if water leakage causes any damage, I can fix it myself, without costing me a arm and a leg.

I work with fiberglass every day on old corvettes and you would be amazed at how many people do it wrong. The biggest misunderstanding is that the more resin the better and that is a big mistake. The resin is just a carrier to bond the glass mat together and the resin in and of itself has no structural integrity and tends to shrink and swell in the sun. I try to draw as much resin back out of the mat as possible once I get it wet and I have had real good results with really expensive cars that people look hard at. Another issue is timing on application of the glass to the gelcoat which is put down first. The walls are actually layed up from the outside in. If the gelcoat is allowed to dry too long before the glass is applied then sometimes the bond isn't as good as it should be. All that said I am sure these are built in factory with standards and machinery that keeps all these things timed and hardened to a specific set to standards. One thing people do need to understand is that fiberglass is a layered system and moisture can get between layers if there is a water leak and also if there is a defective bond between any of the layers an air pocket will form over time and cause the look in your picture. Hope this at least helps understanding what your dealing with.

Our Jayco had a wall that delaminated. It was apparently due to improper layup at the factory. Jayco covered replacing the entire curbside wall at our local dealer. It looks fine now.

I am so glad for the 2 year warranty since the problem did not show up until partway through our second year of ownership.

So the wall was replaced this winter. Dewinterized today and checked for leaks. All looked good until I took one more look inside the closet where the main city water comes in and I found it leaked. Sigh. Lucky I saw that before causing damage. Back to the dealer for them to fix this. Also, never had trouble with our battery holding it's charge and now it doesn't for very.long. Battery was with trailer at dealer all winter.
