Could you heat the area with a hair dryer, inject some epoxy through a small pin hole then apply extended pressure till the epoxy sets?

If you want it fixed you need an RV size Body Shop. I know of two of them. I DO NOT recommend Camping world as they employ a bunch of young Kids. I know one man who works out of his garage (if that is he's still alive) who's good too but he is in metro Detroit. (not in Detroit any more but the township next door).

But I'd look for an independent body shop

Else. others have suggested self repair methods.


Home is where I park it.

Thanks for all help and suggestions. The "tailgate" part is on the side of the RV and not on the rear of the unit. Presently our local service tech is in the process of calling the tech in Forest City for advice. This is the 2nd time we have taken the unit in for this bulging issue. Oh, the joy of RV ownership...:-)

Why are you not taking it back to Winnabago factor, to have it repaired proper?
