Bulging on the side of the trailer

I have a 26 foot Sunset Trail 2013. To the left of the door on top , and also to the left of the side window is bulged. It looks like the fiberglass is separating either from the backing or the framework. Does anyone know of any fixes for this there is no visible water leaks or cracks. Inside trailer is totally dry. I bought the trailer last year and never noticed it last year only this year when it was very hot outside. Both spots are underneath the awning.

Please let me know,
Thank you,
Alan

If I remember correctly, mark5w checked into that and had some info on it. When he gets on here maybe he will chime in and share.

Look under the plastic black trim. It covers the screws. Had a leak on my Cruiser when I found a few heads broke off. Replaced those I could and covered old an new with caulk.


If you decide to fix the exterior wall (made of filon) the recommended glue is Stabond. It is the suggested contact adhesive to use with Filon. Plus what this video recommends:


It's not easy, but good luck if you try.

Sounds like moisture in the wall; air/ steam bubble when under sun/ delamination; get a MOISTURE METER and survey inside and out, repair leak/ LUCK to ya
