Cracks in front cap

I have developed some cracks in the front cap, one over each clearance light recess and three on the passenger side a inch away from wear it meets the side wall on my 2014 321 Premiere.
Can they be repaired without removing the front cap? Anyone else have this issue and have had a successful repair?

Yes, exactly like that, one at each light.

I had many cracks in the gelcoat on my Eagle. I didn't discover them until I washed it after our first trip. Jayco covered it with a new cap, it's good as new, (well, better actually) and I'm a happy camper!

Has anyone with this condition, who had a unit that was out of warranty, had it fixed? If you did it yourself, what did you do and if you took it to the dealer what did they do and what was the cost?

Man, I was hoping Jayco didn't have this issue. I had the front cap on our last Cedar Creek changed or fixed 3 times. I sold it with cracks. Just wouldn't quit. I hope yall all get your stuff resolved.

We had the front cap crack on our 2012 HT 26.5 RLS and Jayco replaced it rather than repairing it. Sorry to hear about yours, ours only had one crack in the running light above it on the driver's side.
