Surface Cracks Head Locker Interior

On our last trip I noticed the interior surface of our storage cabinet above the dinette is showing cracks in the white laminate. The cracks are at the front curvature and can only be seen by poking your head into the cabinet (or using a mirror). I was looking to see that I had removed everything when I spotted the cracks. I contacted JC abut this and was told the remedy is to replace the cabinet. Is anyone else experiencing this same issue? The trailer was purchased new last September and we have not stored any heavy items in the locker.

Are the cracks in the bottom part of the cabinet where it curves or the bottom part of the door where it curves? Iím assuming the cabinet but wanted to clarify.

I donít know if this make you feel better or me feel worse. I looked in my 2018 Globetrotter and have cracks in the same place. I had forgotten about it but we saw those cracks in ours. My wife noticed them when she was dusting out the cabinets. It appeared to me there was a plastic film that was glued on the structural part of the cabinet. I didnít see anything structurally wrong with the cabinet so we didnít make any warranty claim.

If it makes you feel better we have had no issue with the cabinet in 4 years over some rough roads. However; I would certainly have the factory look at it under warranty. If they tell it needs to be replaced because itís gonna fall donít let me know!

I had the same cracks inside the cabinet above the dinette in my 6 month old international. It’s cosmetic, the cracks are in the Formica. Watch your fingers while dusting, you can slice them open.

Iíve decided that replacing the cabinet under warranty opens up potentially new issues thatíd Iíd rather not entertain. Instead Iím going to use white ďGorillaĒ tape to tape the cracks and call it good. Thanks for your feedback.
