Compact Junior crack

I was looking under my trailer today and saw a long crack in the fiberglass. It is about one foot long and goes all the way through. Any ideas how to repair and what may have caused it? Thanks!

I'm not sure where this would be. is it near the wheels/axle? does it go lengthwise or left to right? Something probably twisted the trailer. maybe a boat/fiberglass company could tell you how serious it is.

You should fix it with fiberglass resin and matte or cloth or both, really.

LOTS of info on YouTube about fiberglassing (esp. boats) and LOTS more here on FGRV in the search engine. Try the "Fear of Fiberglassing" thread on FGRV for a good, long and varied discussion of how a newbie to fiberglassing learned to fix a 1973 trailer's fiberglass from soup to nuts. (from pinholes to a 2- x 3-foot hole, cracks, rough areas, etc.).

Semper ubi sub ubi.
