Cargo door delaminating

Still in our warranty year of our 335tg 5er. Only issue we have had is the replacement of the forward large cargo door. Noticed what I thought, and later confirmed was the swelling of the wood material under the fiberglass causing multiple areas of delimitation. The local keystone dealer replaced the door with a new factory one. Now 2 weeks later, the new door is showing the same effect in a different location, only worse. The swelling is on both interior and exterior of the door.
Has anyone else experienced this problem with the new units? New to fiberglass campers, I can only guess that once the water gets in, it never gets better. Will be pursuing a replacement door ASAP.

Sounds to me as if water is entering somewhere above the door and causing the problem for TWO doors to develop damage in such a short period of time. Good luck and be sure to let us know what you find, Hank

I have also noticed what appears to be expansion of the interior areas around the two bottom latches in my large outside kitchen door. The door also appears to be warped inward toward the center along the bottom edge. I am watching it closely and can't see how or if water is gettingin the door .
