    Molding warp

    We have serious issue with our new 2021 momentum 320g, warping on lower side aluminum trim, where aluminum joins side panel behind the driver side slide out. It has pulled the black trim and graphic away and broke the caulk seal. Have concern for water damage if graphic rips. Has been home 10 days. Fresh off assembly line.

    A picture would help provide assistance. In general, it's not unusual to experience shrinkage and expansion effects such as you describe. Sometimes it's an aesthetic-only issue, and sometimes it's an issue with maintaining weather-tightness.

    Wow! I think someone forgot about thermal expansion when designing that configuration! Those pictures should go right to a Grand Design Customer Service representative bypassing the dealer IMO. Reason being is that it is easy fixed by putting in an overlap seam to accommodate the growth and shrinkage during thermal cycles, but Grand Design should think it through and provide guidance to the dealer to fix.
