cracked entry door

I have a 2011 Keystone Avalanche. I purchased it used. My entry door has several cracks running horizontal starting approx. 2 feet from the bottom all the way to the top. The bottom one is a good 1/8 inch wide the others are just cracks. Been told I would have to replace entire door not just the inside panel. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

cracked entrance door

I have a 2011 Keystone Avalanche 38 ft fifth wheel. Purchased used. The entrance door on the inside has 6 to 8 cracks from side to side from two feet from the bottom to the top. The bottom crack is approx. 1/8 inch wide the rest are just cracks. Has anyone ever seen this happen or have an idea of a reason and can just the inside panel be replaced the outside is fine.

If the door frame is not welded metal, can it be disassembled and the inside panel replaced with your choice of some other material? Some of these doors are 'sandwiches' of filler and outside paneling, but the paneling itself may be glued to the filler and can't be peeled off.
Or you could try Colaw RV Salvave in Carthage, MO, for a possible identical replacement.
Haven't heard of this happening before...

Thanks I think I'm going to try to replace inside panel with a shower panel from Home Depot.

That would be my first thought also. Getting the door off might be a problem if the door/frame are sort of one piece...
