Small delam bubble

Our Monte lives under a shed cover. I was washing it this weekend to get ready for an upcoming trip. I noticed a small section of delam under the front bedroom slide bottom corner. It is not much and I only noticed it because the reflection was slightly wavey. Tap on it with my Aggie ring and you can hear the hollow section vs. the solid walls. It looks like it may have been "buckled" by the weight of the slide box on the corner. All the caulk is intact so it was not caused by water intrusion. The siding is "captured" by trim pieces on the top and bottom. Oh well...hope it does not spread.

I assume there is nothing more I can do to protect it from spreading except keep it water tight?

Well if it had to happen, that's probably the best spot. I can't I imagine it spreading. If it was me, I'd just keep an eye on it. The only repair I can think of would be R&R the section. A good fiberglass body shop could handle it. Maybe reach out to Keystone and see what repair they recommend?
