The fix is strictly cosmetic as they install a channel where the crack occurred. It takes longer for a Redwood to approve the repair than the repair itself.

It doesn't seem like their "fix" is much of a fix. I'm concerned that if it is something structurally wrong, that something more substantial needs to be done. I would think that additional damage could result from not fixing the core problem.

na - its been an issue across multiple brands of RVs. The sidewall is just too narrow under the slides, and although you would hate to think there is flex, there is, and that is the portion that catches the result of that flex against a rigid wall.

The retro-fix, is the flex joint that Redwood should have been putting in at the factory just like it's competitors learned a decade ago. Its nothing to stress about structurally.
