Cracking Outside Access Doors

Anybody seeing cracks appearing on their outside access doors?
My July/2012 5.0 is parked outside and but sometimes covered. I am noticing the door finish is showing cracks. Both forward doors
and the larger rear storage doors. I am not sure how to deal with this properly. Any suggestions?

Holy Smokes! Never saw that before
Are those doors purchased items ETI installs? Could maybe get a replacement from the supplier. I'd call Chillawack.

Is that cracking or texture?
Never really looked at mine before. I think it's made of aluminum.

You have to click on the thumbnail. It's really not blown out like that. Admin is working on fixing the thumbnails.

My doors are not textured nor made of aluminum. It seems to be some sort of plastic laminate with aluminum frames. I haven't said anything before this. I was hoping to show this to Reace this month down here during his visit. I wonder how bad they're going get past my warranty? My trailer is parked on the north (shady) side of our house.

Well, since Reace and Tammy aren't making the trip, I'd get in touch with ETI before your warranty expires.

I would definitely contact Reace about it, that is not normal, nor right.
