I don't have those on mine, or at least where I can see them

If you had them, you would know it. They are installed on some slides when the slide is retracted to stabilize and seal them for travel. If you open the slide with the locks in place, something would have to give and damage would most likely occur. Some slides do not have them.

After looking at your pictures , it looks to me like the original cut out on the trailer sidewall was not made with a radius corner and this may be a patch job to make it appear that it was. Now I am not saying this to scare you but they may all be like this for all I know. However there was another poster who also expierenced similar problems in areas that were in cut outs for doors and slide outs. He had cracks in the fiberglass that were bonded together with a adhesive and made to look normal but over time the cracks started to appear and lengthen. It only makes sense to me that this area would be the Achilles heel of the trailer walls. Get it checked out, trust your instincts. Hope this helps.

We have the same trailer and I really don't see anything different. Our trailer does have wrinkled tape on the slide tops but we have no leaks.

Clutch, I think he is worried about what looks like fresh cracks in the corner of the wall where the lateral and horizontal sides meet above the rubber. It is most noticeable in the first photo. Vibration may have exposed where the original cut was made. I think this is the issue but I may be wrong. The good news is that they don't appear to be going anywhere except where the cut was made and now he is able to observe them over time to see if they change.

I just checked the areas on my new Jayco SuperLite and they look identical to your photos. It looks like it is the metal strip that attaches the rubber seal to the fiberglass sidewall. I too can get a finger nail under the area that appears to be coming loose. My guess is that they glued the metal strips to the fiberglass to attach the rubber seals. I am currently in Texas until April but when I get back to WV I will have my dealer look at it. Thanks for the heads up.

Murphie, I have the same marks on the corners. I really don't see it as a problem.

I think your right. I'd look at my slide out but I've got the trailer tucked away and can't open the slide. As mentioned above it may be part of rubber seal that attaches to the trailer. Just being aware of it is what is important. It may not be an issue at all.
