Fiberglass wall repair

Anybody have experience on how to repair the outside fiberglass wall on a trailer? I noticed a 18" by about a 1/4" crack in the side of my trailer. It looks like it's right above where the awning cover is atached to.
Thanks for the help.

many camper siding material referred to is actually a stuff called Filon (which is a plastic). Wood paneling is then laminated to the Filon and used for camper siding. the only way to truly repair is to replace the entire side. Very spendy. I am guessing that some of the awning anchoring screws missed the studs so the awning is stressing the Filon exterior (when the awning whips in the wind or even driving down the highway). Can you pull the paneling on the inside? take a look?
