Resurrecting this thread rather than starting a new one. I have a 2013 30DSRE that I bought new in December 2012. The trailer has been great. We are very meticulous about keeping it clean. The inside looks and smells like brand new. I wash the exterior at least several times a year and I've waxed the front cap on several occasions. However, nonetheless, my front cap is looking faded as others have described.
I am still in my warranty period but 1) I am not sure that this would be covered and 2) I am not sure whether it would present brand new risks by having them mess with it.
My main concern is if the front cap were to be replaced would it then be an area of risk for water intrusion or some other "didn't get the new one on there quite right" problem? I would rather have a little cosmetic fade than to introduce structural / integrity concerns.
What options exist, if any, to fix or greatly improve the condition of the cap? After another couple years if it looks really bad can the cap be reconditioned in some way without being removed / replaced?
Outside of this issue my trailer has had very few minor issues. I am happy with how it is holding up and am hoping it makes it to the year 2020 (7 years total) when I might move to a fifth wheel.
