Stress Crack in the fiberglass near bedroom slide

We have a 2018 36KTPS Pinnacle and have been traveling since January 1st, 2019. Today we noticed a stress crack just in front of the bedroom slide. Has anyone experienced this issue and how big of a fix is it?

Welcome to the club. It's a common enough problem. Been an issue for years. Contact your dealer and/or Jayco

As stated, a very common issue on many Jayco and other manufacturer brands.

Some people send their unit back to the Jayco factory, by way of their dealer, fo the fix. It is quite involved, and may recurr.

May I ask what pin box you have been using?

Welcome to the club. We're currently working with a collision center and Jayco to get our crack fixed.

Unfortunately the cracking is pretty common, but that said, it doesn't affect everybody.

Lowmiler - we have the MORryde pin box. Hitch is a B&W Companion.

Best thing is to contact your dealer. I sent pictures to my dealer, they were up front and said they do not have the facilities to do such a repair. They contacted Jayco Service for me and set up a return to the factory.
Our appointment in Indiana is May 15-30, 2019. We have to have it to the dealer by May 1st and Jayco will transport it to and from the factory.

I do and I still got the crack.
I now have a trailer saver hitch which has airbags in it so I hopefully wonít have any problem with the crack coming back

In a different post asking about this, their may be a correlation between the two. Or. The airbags are causing the cracks

Not everyone with the crack has airbags on their truck. Trust me, Iíve tried to figure out some type of causal connection and there just doesnít seem to be one. Does not matter what brand truck, what type of hitch, airbags or not, year of trailer, etc.

Luck of the draw Iím afraid
