My cap is fading badly and in several spots has turned white. Still under warranty (getting real close though), and contacted dealer to get the process started. The service desk at the dealer did not sound surprised. We will see how well Jayco handles it.

To make it "OFFICAL", take a few pictures of your fading issue and send them to service@jayco.com. Make sure that you include you VIN number with the pictures. This way you are on record with JAYCO.

Got 'er back today

It looks great. The local body shop is such a perfectionist that it took several days longer. They called me at one time and said they weren't happy with some area on it and wanted to run it back into the paint shop. Then the decal guy called to run some things past me. The little swoosh ends dudn't have the multi colors like the originals and the main part of the side decals. He offered to remove those details on the sides to make it all match. Couldn't be happier. The work cost Jayco $2200.
We can't say enough good about Jayco or our dealership here.

Proud owner

Kind of feels like getting a new rig.
Had local sign shop put on a custom decal. An artist friend sketched this out. Emailed image to shop, took rv in, about 20 minutes to apply, and $190.
We're still in shock that Jayco covered the repainting.

What an idea! Looks like new and now unique to you. Live and learn, sure took RV industry a while to get OFF the dark front kick, 2017 Eagle is now correct.

Fading Paint

I have a 2013 Jayco 36REQS and the paint on the front cap, door side and the rear were chalking bad. After reading all the posts on the fading paint I contacted Jayco on the issue. They stepped up to the plate and painted the front cap, rear and door side. I picked her up on Friday and looks like a brand new trailer. I'm a happy camper.

Mine was also fading at the top and Jayco approved a complete front cap repaint. I like the brown but often wonder if white is a better way to go.

When JAYCO redid the front cap on our EAGLE, I opted to have it done the same color as our sides. The dealer did a digital color analysis of the side color and mixed the cap paint to match it.

So, the old dark brown color temperature in the sun exceeded 200 degrees and after it was redone with the lighter color the max temperature of the cap never exceeded 119 degrees. It is sooooooooo much cooler in the front cabinets and the front bedroom.

Go with the light color.

JAYCO said they would not extend the warranty on the new color as it was not an original color, I had 2 months left to my exterior warranty so I said ok..... BUT the dealer that painted it has a 5 year warranty on their paint job. Win... Win call for me

Make sure you inform the shop that the decals on the side of the front cap are not part of the front cap decal package and they need to have JAYCO send out the complete decal package. That is the way they do it.... must have cost them a pretty penny to send out the complete decal package for a few SMALL decals.

Picture is in My Registry.
