Had a crack in our 264BH. Jayco replaced the entire cap.

One thing I'm curious about on the Jayco cap, and something that they never did figure out on my cedar creek, is WHY are they cracking. They shouldn't, ever. Never had this problem before on previous rigs. And usually the famous company response is "we haven't had this issue before, or, that's the first we've heard of it", as if it's never happened, while at the same time you're communicating with several others on forums that are dealing with the same thing. So, BS, it's happened, several times, and obviously is still happening.

Yes, I would like know too. If you do a search you will find cracking is not unique to any one brand. I would like to know what causes it to crack and will it crack again after the repair? I thinking there may be only a couple manufactures of front and rear caps.

There is only a hand full of suppliers that make the caps. Can't remember their company names. Some companies make their own, but they are few and far between. It is definitely not unique to any one brand as you said. See it on several lines.

Some who have had cap cracks have found that there were cracks/breaks in the forward frame from flexing. Cracks in Lippert frames are not unusual. I would have the forward frame inspected by a qualified frame person.

I had cracks in my front cap but they were only in the gel coat. Jayco had them repaired at a local fiber glass company.

Has anyone with this problem had it fixed other than through warranty? Did anyone who had this problem decide to just let it go? If so, did you have any reoccuring problems (like water leakage?).

I have a 2" crack in the gelcoat of the passenger side clearance light. Discovered while washing when it was 4 months out of warranty. Dealer said to drill a small hole at end of crack and take it to a fiberglass shop. I drilled and sealed the hole and crack with a marine sealant. Haven't touched it since and it is still in the same condition as when I discovered it. This was over two years ago. It is not noticeable unless you are looking for it.
