I had a rear cap replaced while still under warranty and regretted it because the replacement cracked even worse. Then, my RV dealer did plastic welds but they did not hold. Then, the front one started and both began warping along the roof line, so I put some extra screws in. However, the warping continued and I kept having to close up the gaps with self-leveling caulk.

These problems were not necessarily related to vibration when on the road because they would happen when in storage over the winter with cover on.

Final resolution (I hope): I have used self leveling caulk to plug up the cracks. Last summer an RV dealer where I live pounded in nails to hold the caps down to the roof and then put a very large amount of self leveling caulk over these nails to seal it all. The cost was reasonable. So far, so good.

I've used an epoxy based product called G flex by west systems to hold things together. It remains flexible and works on plastic, fiberglass metal and wood. Google it.
