Cracks In Roof

I just discovered that my new 2017 Vista 29VE has cracks in the roof at the radius bend on the sides. Has any one had this problem? Should I trust my local Camping World to make the repair of plan a trip to Forest City?

Cracks in the material, or at the seam?

My 2015 Vista manufactured in December 2014 had several inch wide color matching heavy tape, similar to aftermarket tape called Eternabond, at the bottom of the bends down both sides of my RV. Above the tape I noticed a few spots with some fine surface only spider cracks here and there, just cosmetic. My assumption was that the thin plywood with the fiberglass gelcoat layer on top was bent around the radius at too cold a temperature when my RV was assembled. I put a clear tape product over the areas I purchased at a Home Center, Gorilla Clear Repair Tape, 2", just to make sure that the spider cracks could not get any worse.

Is it in the roof cove as shown in this photo? If so, we were told this crack was due to stress from the slide-out. Our dealership was going to fix it, but when they turn the warranty claim into the Winnebago factory, the factory wanted to fix it. It looks as good as new now.
