I've seen it on a lot of rv's. I think if it doesn't crack the outer shell and no damaged is seen...I wouldn't be concerned. Just keep an eye on it. If it starts to stress crack..then contact Jayco.

That's normal. I think it's caused by the laminating process. Mine had a couple that were more noticeable the older it got, but even after 9 years, everything was still solid.

When you walk around campgrounds look at the other newer units. You'll see the same thing.

I assumed but didn’t notice till I got home so was stressed out a bit. I’ll just enjoy it and keep an eye it. Thanks for the reply!

Ok thanks! I just hadn’t noticed it much on my other a Jayco and just want to make sure it was ok. Other than that we love it.

To be on the safe side, I would take plenty of pictures and contact your Jayco dealer to advise them of the issue. Ask them to document this in your records. That way, if this should be a problem down the road, they will at least know that you advised them of it from day one.
