Has anybody else noticed very slight cracks in the paint on the nose of their trailers? While I was buffing out the front nose of my trailer, near the top (about 6 inches above the logo) I noticed a few "spider web" cracks in the paint. I don't know what caused this but I'm suspecting that the nose cap is flexing while going down the road. They can't be seen from the ground because they're up high. I'm not sure if this is something that could get worse or not.

Heat. I was hoping that issue was gone forever, but maybe not. Newmar had that issue on motorhomes with dark body paint over gelcoat. They had to be repainted. Should be a warranty issue. At least it was with newmar.

If paint is cracking, end cap could crack, my thinking is if Fiberglas or plastic flexes or rubber starts showing cracks, it can break all the way thru in time, where will you be when that happens?

This is in 2 places about the size of a silver dollar on either side of the cap. The only way I noticed it was by thoroughly buffing the paint.

does anybody have the guys name and number that replaced Brian?

Don't think there is anyone specific. You just call the Cross Roads Service Center and get placed in the que for the next available Tech, or leave a call back number for them to call you back.

I called the company and as usual I'm happy with their equal concerns.
