Gel coat issues
The front caps are GEL coated, and yes they have a clear coat from the factory, according to the Jayco Dealer's paint and body shop that painted our 2013 cap. They also said that there are different grades of CLEAR COAT and obviously we can see that the RV industry is not using the top of the line products. He said that it runs about $130 a gallon for the best. They also indicated that there is research showing that Clear Coat should not be applied over a GEL coat, but the jury is still out on that one..
So, if your cap is starting to get a glaze or a HINT of a glaze on the top/upper front, take it to dealer and get the process started before the WARRANTY expires.
One last item, the paint and body shop said that ALL the GEL coat has to be removed down to the fiberglass prior to preparing for paint or you will be in for future issues.
He did say that Jayco is not the only mfr that has this issue.
