It is out of warranty, so the first thing I would do is drill a very small (1/8" or smaller) hole at the end of the crack. This will stop it from propagating any further. Next I would do some searching to figure out why it cracked. As for the fix, I cannot help, but I had a small spiderweb crack in my side wall and the dealer sent it out for repair and I could not locate spot. So it can be fixed and fixed very well.

If fixed properly, the sidewall will have to be removed to get to what is causing the flexing.

Norty, If I recall yours cracked too? How did the repair go. Ours cracked and Jayco fixed it at the factory under warranty.

To the OP, even though your unit is out of warranty I would still call Jayco and see if there is anything they would do to help you. They are also the best place to have it repaired even if you have to pay for it.
