Bubble on Sidewall

Several weeks ago my 2012 Jayco Superlite 5th wheel was jacked up to service the wheel bearings and brakes. The unit was jacked up as instructed in the Jayco manual while hooked up to the tow vehicle. The next day a bubble was noticed on the sidewall about 2/3 of the way back on the passenger side. The bubble is about 13 inches top to bottom and 10 inches from side to side and bubbles out about 1/4 to 1/2 inch. It appears to have delaminated from the material it was adhered to. The unit had been checked regularly for potential water intrusion spots and I do not believe there has been any water leaks.

Has anyone experienced this type of failure? The unit is still under warranty, but I would like to make sure I'm well educated before going to the dealer.

Thanks for your input.

If I read the OP's post correctly, the issue is the TT sidewall not the tires.

I would email Jayco and ask about the problem, noting that it was jacked up according to their instructions.
