Side Wall Crack at Roof Line

I have a 2012 3400RL, that has a SMALL crack at the roof line RIGHT Side behind the bedroom slide.

The crack is about 3 feet long and 1/2 inch to 1 inch below the roof drip molding, there is no separation but you can run your finger nail down the crack for most of the 3 feet.

Is that any hope for a factory guy to look at it or do I not worry about it???

I took pictures and will call the factory Monday 6-9-14 to see if they think its something to worry about.

Yes, I would worry about it. It is something to worry about if it is deep, as moisture can cause delamination. And it may spread. And Keystone may pull the warranty period argument on you. If serious, an expansion joint is the normal fix, or repair of a broken frame weld which requires peeling back of the fiberglass and welding and follow-up body work. Labor intensive and expensive. If the crack is superficial and not into the fiberglass wall itself, not so much to worry about, and sealing with caulk may be enough. A 3 foot long crack would be serious to me. I would fight Keystone, worst they can do is refuse to fix.

Just like the roof staples coming up on my 2012. Keystone won't cover the repair until the staples come through the fabric. Good luck with your wall crack.
