Got my estimate and it came in at $2200. Now the ball is in the dealer/Jayco court. If denied I'll not shell out that amount, you could probably get a car repainted for that much. May be looking for another alternative. One suggestion was a local sign shop that makes whole car decals. Might ask them about that for the cap.

Local paint shop did mine by sanding the faded area even between the Eagle lettering and clear coated the entire cap. He sprayed the sanded area and right over the decals saying the clear coat will also protect them. Same shop had done the hood & top of my truck where the clear coat had deteriorated over the last 16 years. $1000 for both units.

2015 fade

Our rig is one year old and started fading like others on the top of the cap. I contacted dealer and Jayco with pics and we got approved in one week. We also will be having the color changed to match the body witch will help cool. We will be camping next week and then dropping it off for paint. So far we are very happy with how fast and professional Jayco customer service is with the few issues we had.

I noticed some discoloration last week on mine but I had no idea how bad it was until I got a bucket truck for a closer look. Once I got up high enough, I could see that the entire top of the cap is gray and it's working its way down the front.

I'm 4 months out of warranty and very worried Jayco will not cover this. On our first trip out this year our front AC did not work. Jayco did not cover anything because our warranty had expired two months prior to the trip. Phone calls to Jayco customer service did not help. The answer was NO.

I've forwarded pictures of the problem to the dealer and they will be filing a claim tomorrow.

Wish me luck...

Was notified by email from dealer that Jayco denied the claim for my 2013 Eagle fading cap. They suggested I contact Jayco myself, which I did on Monday. They told me that the claim was denied by "Anthony" who was at lunch but would call me. So far nothing. I guess I'll have to call them again.

*****Update!
Out of warranty and claim was approved! What a great company. Now just have to schedule with paint shop and wait for decals. Going to go with just those two swoosh ends, no Eagle or mountain scene, and paint to match th rest of the RV.

That's great news! I was really worried because mine is out of warranty by 4 months, but my dealer just notified me that Jayco approved my claim. I am asking for it to be repainted the same as the body.

Dark colors on RV's

Just returned from the Tamp Summer RV show and the dark color RV's look good but here in Florida they make the AC work so much harder. My Precept 31UL had an option for full body paint for $12,500. I can replace a lot of decals for that amount of money and my RV will stay cooler with the light tan gel coat.

OUTSTANDING!!!!

Smart move on the color change. 100+ degrees cooler on the surface and about 30 degrees cooler on the interior of the cabinets of the front cap

I was glad I heard about the fade on here as I put in for mine last fall when it started right at the top of the front cap. Problem is most of the time by the time it migrates down to eye view its too late for warranty. Mine is to be painted at the jayco factory this fall but my fade has gotten seriously worse since last fall and now is really noticeable from the ground.
