Plexiglass looks warped

Just got home from short trip and we have 2007 Safari and the plexiglass that actually covers the glass looks warped. It is the middle section not the curved sides. One half of it looks flat and the other looks pushed in or not flat. You can put your hand on the under side of it and push it out flat. That is the best way I can describe it. Any way we did not hit anything. It is on the back side over the hitch. Anyone have any ideas as to what might have caused this. Did see one in the campground where we stayed that looked the same, should have asked the guy what happened to his.

They never are perfectly flat. It's fairly normal for the reflections in that panel to show a small bit of wave. Is it warped more than a quarter inch? Ditto on pictures.

Can we assume the frame is still flat?

Plexiglass warped

It was flat before we left home. I don't have any pictures right now and I am not sure you could appreciate it in a picture. It is not the easiest to see, it is not a big indention and you can really see it better from the side when you look across it, but you can feel it. We are taking it in to BT camper sales in St. Louis to see what they think, but don't know how it got that way. Maybe wind resistance or something.

Our middle section is the same way. It is not enought to write home about but you can definitely see the warp. I figure it is primarily from wind reistance. I did notice that the rubber spline used to hold it in is dropping out of the groove and I need to check that out.

I've replaced a broken lexan panel in the rockguard on my Argosy. Just push it back in with the dull blade of a screwdriver. If you remove the spline be sure to push in the direction of the already seated part as you insert it. Otherwise it will stretch and you'll have too much when done and the tension will pull it out again.
