Ground material falling into lower storage compartment

For a few months (and before this season's extreme heat) a ground material, beige colored, has been accumulating on the floor in the exterior front lower storage compartment. I need help determining what it is and its source. I seem to recall that a "dimple" along the front exterior top appeared at about the same time, but that is not a given. We have had several weeks of over 100 deg temps in Waco and the more obvious fiberglass bubbles have emerged very recently. For a few months (and before this season's extreme heat) a ground material, beige colored, has been accumulating on the floor in the exterior front lower storage compartment. I need help determining what it is and its source. I seem to recall that a "dimple" along the front exterior top appeared at about the same time, but that is not a given. We have had several weeks of over 100 deg temps in Waco and the more obvious fiberglass bubbles have emerged very recently. We were at 115 deg in Wichita Falls about 14 days ago. A seam separation appeared in the last few days at the curve of the front cap and trailer side. It might have been present for a heavy rain in Branson about 5 days ago. Would the bubbles appear that quickly if we had a leak at that seam that recently? I don't know much about fiberglass construction, but could the particles be something from the material to which a fiberglass skin was attached? If so, I am not sure a simple re-glue and press is going to work. Obviously, the seam separation has to be fixed. Other than the appearance is it likely that the trailer can continue to be used, or does the ground material indicate an ongoing problem that will cause ultimate destruction of the front cap area? In general, is a tarp cover on an a trailer stored outside and uncovered in Texas going to help much? The trailer is a 2015 Rockwood 2304DS.
