    :worried: Hi guys .

    Should be 'Hairline ' Sorry!!


    Can you put our minds at ease at all please? We have recently taken on a Auto Trail Cheyenne 630 LB. Although the MH is a 2005/6 ( I say 05/06 because it was actually registered in December 05 , seemed close to an 06 possibly? ) Any way..We have had a few minor issues with it all be it petty stuff.
    It is second hand after all.Some of which, I have asked for advice on here and received vey good help too I may add :clap: .
    I am now needing some more help though ..sorry!
    In the form of mental relief though! Something a little better than paracetamol or Neurofen!
    I have noticed some minor cracking in the fibre glass posts that run down the the body work behind the two cab doors! I seriously had not seen this before other wise I may have said leave well alone.
    IS it something to concern myself over or not? My mH has come with a full history and Habitation Certificate showing no faults , it has very low mileage and shows very little use at all to be honest.
    It had only covered 600 miles in the year before we had it, and quite honestly runs like a 'New one'.
    If I am being perfectly honest with you all...I was polishing it! Anorak I know :yawn: . It was only then had I picked up on these small air line cracks ! Where they are too, I should have seen them as I have got in and out of the cab! Fool!! Sometimes wonder if the glasses I have need throwing away! :coolest:
    Any way...Any advice yet again would be gratefully accepted. I will one day be as Knowledgable as you guys...Promise! Just need a little more time please.

    Kev and Carolyn :dance:

    Hi Kev and Carolyn

    In a word "don't worry" sorry two words, I am sure somebody will come on and say captain trolleys creeping crack cure, never used in myself so not sure what it will do or how good it does it. The crack will just be stress cracks in the gel coat and as long as the surface feels firm you will be fine. Plenty of polish will not hurt at all.

    Thanks Martin.

    No flex in the panels at all , but just a little worrying having not seen them beforehand!
    Spend most of my time polishing to be honest! :sneaky:
