Showed up last month (25000 miles). Not fixed yet. Sent a photo today to Redwood before the warranty expires.

would this be under the 2 year or the 5 year warranty? Is there any way you could post a picture of it? I would like to see what I am looking for on the 31SL. Keep us posted on what Redwood says about it.

I've got the same thing happening. Need to get it fixed but no dealer within 3 hours of me. Hopefully I can find some place that Redwood will approve for the repair locally.

I just got mine repaired today. Finally found a Redwood dealer that would actually do it. I'm at Madison RV near Huntsville, Alabama. Seem like really nice people to work with. We'll see what the repair looks like tomorrow morning.

My 2015 36RL came looking just like Robs. They must be installing on all new trailers

Here is the crack in the fiberglass under the bedroom slide on the 31sl.

I can't seem to orient the rotation correctly. Sorry

I just got mine out of the shop for the same problem, crack on the drivers side of my RL. They contacted the factory and did the repair with the trim work, pulled it to the wash rack and the crack re appeared. They called Redwood and took the panel loose and repaired it again. I have only been about 25 miles since repair and it is ok right now. Just wondering what happens after my 2 years of the 2+5 is over if the problem reoccurs.

Our 36FL recently developed hair-line cracks on both the left and right sides beneath the front slides. Is anyone familiar with what Redwood does to fix the issue....ie additional bracing at those points? Also, approximately how long does it take to complete the repair?

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.
