Crack in 2015 Elevation

Has anyone had problems with a crack by the masterbedroom bed slide?

I have a crack that is getting bigger at the front left.

Yes - relatively common. Do a search on this forum and you will find fixes and more info.

Dedmiston- as mentioned, do a forum search for "siding crack" and "H molding". There are pictures and fix info posted.

I hope you have searched for and found what caused it to crack.

Then have the cosmetic work done.

Fiberglass repair will not work due to flexing. As already mentioned 'H' trim is the easiest fix, provided this is caused by normal amount of flex. In fact many fifth wheels use the 'H' trim right from the factory, it is on my Cruiser. Normally it is installed vertically to be less noticeable but that isn't going to work in your case. You also may have a more serious structural issue, if flex is 3/4 inch or greater measured at the king pin, then you need to dig deeper.

Here is my thread:

http://www.crossroadsowners.com/foru...fix-12269.html

Our crack was behind/below the bedroom slide and the repair facility installed an expansion joint instead of fixing it. The joint protects the opening so it does not allow water to penetrate while allowing for flexing. Fixing the crack apparently would not hold. It would just crack again.

I'm afraid you have to turn your computer sideways to see the picture with the fix. I can take this picture the right way if needed as our trailer is now in our driveway.

DON'T DO THAT!!! I have a 2013 Elevation and CR paid for the fix and repair of this problem. Your dealer needs to reach out to CR and have them send a piece of "H" trim that they can install to relieve the pressure and flex of the laminate sides.


I'm telling you, this is common across all brands and all types of RVs with laminate sides. CR WILL TAKE CARE OF IT.
