Hairline cracks across front/roof

I have a 2017 Whitehawk. I noticed that on the front of the TT where the front wall curves up to the roof there are hairline cracks across entire top, from left to right. Two questions:
1. Is this something to be concerned about. I will watch it to make sure they don't get bigger.
2. If I need to repair this, how do I go about it. I am not even sure how the finish is constructed?

Pictures would be very helpful. Both for us to understand exactly what you call a hairline crack and to document how it is changing over time.

Any crack I would be concerned about. It could be a little surface stress from when Jayco, bent the fiberglass sheet around the front curve. A scratch with dirt in it can look like a crack.

Pending on where they are at. There could be some simple repairs.

Hairline cracks in Alante roof

I was up on the roof of my 2018 Alante inspecting the seals, etc., and observed three areas with hairline cracks on the pebbled fiberglass roof. The cracks are at the rolled areas where the roofline goes from slights slope to verticle.

Do these look like your issues?

Anyone have advice on how to best repair this before it turns into a leak?
