It looks like the joint where the fiberglass front cap meets the stainless side skin. I wouldn't worry about it as it looks to be just cosmetic.

Compared your pictures to my coach since the M380 & M450 front end caps are identical. It is common for fiberglass to get stress cracks at the corners of large openings such as the bay doors. However compared to mine, this 450’s bay corner appears to have a good sized crack. That said, I’d still bet it’s cosmetic and fixable. BTW this horizontal “crack” is not at the fiberglass-metal joint. On both coaches, that vertical joint is behind not in front of the drivers window/L front bay.

I have a crack in the same area.
I got my crack when the front bottomed out.
You have to watch those driveways...
