2005 Four Winds, Majeatic 23A, Class C Motorhome

The fiberglass siding on the passenger side is separating at the bottom from the chassis. Thus all road dirt & dust is getting into the motorhome.

Any idea on how to fix this? How is the fiberglass siding attached to the chassis??

I would suggest starting by calling Thor's customer service to see what you could learn re construction techniques, maybe get a frame drawing, etc....
BUT
I seriously doubt if you'd get anywhere with that.... beyond a suggestion to take it to a dealer.
So
If you can post a photo or or two of the issue, there's a few handy folks here that might help with suggestions.

Sounds like delamination. Unfortunately, the biggest cause of delamination is water damage. But in your case, it could be either that or simply stresses.

You really need to determine how it happened before fixing.

Typically, delamination issues can be fixed by gluing everything back together. Small areas can easily be done by the RV owner, but large areas might be structural and should be looked at by a RV shop.

It's basically the whole side separating at the bottom from the chassis. It happened traveling all the bumpy roads in Alaska.
