What is this?

Hello all,

Looking for some info and suggestions on this.

Recently noticed that on both sides I have several inches of what appears to be plastic that is over the trim at the front/sides of my 5th Wheel. It is different from the trim that runs alongside the area, also like it came out from under the wall. I would think I had some major frame flex for this to happen. See pictures for clarity.

I have a 2019 30.5 MBOK, using a goose box.

I haven't seen anything like that before. I had to convert your image from .webp to .jpg so I could zoom in. From the pic it looks like the sidewall is pushed out where that piece is sliding down. Very strange...

It almost looks like your wall panel has separated / de laminated and it's outer layer slipped out over the corner trim. If that's what I think it is I agree you've got major flex happening somehow.
Our 5er kept breaking the sealant along that same seam on both sides. While not that severe, I saw a 1/4" movement on the driver side, passenger side was just enough to break sealant bead. Took dealer 3 attempts to finally stop it which required longer screws up into the steel frame along that corner trim.


Here's some threads on possible fix-

Went back out and I think you are right, looks like I'll have to remove the trip place it back over the wall parts and use some longer screws, last trip we hit a major dip and it probably happened then. I also have seen some movement that broke the sealent.

thanks for the links.

hate to say this...but you need your rig inspected for a broke frame.
