I know what you mean by HOT GA sun, we live near Clearwater FL, and it is HOT
Here is another link to the Front Cap Fading issue.
We had ours repainted the same color as out TT sides. Best decision we made. The outside of the cap is more than 100 degrees cooler (dark 220+, light 119 in the FL sun). The inside front bedroom is MUCH cooler now. We were one of the first to deal with Jayco regarding this issue, they were GREAT with the way they handled the issue.
Jayco paid for the whole process/light paint, but would not warranty the light paint. No problem, we had a few months left on the Jayco exterior warranty and the service center that painted ours has a 5 year warranty on the paint.
My recommendation have them match your TT's siding and go LIGHT, you will not be sorry. Oh, make sure that who ever paints your TT, orders the side decals, as the small area on the side of the cap is part of the TT's side decal.
For anyone reading these posts and you have a front cap that is fading, make it official (ASAP) and contact Jayco (email@example.com) to make Jayco aware of your issue. If you are within your 2 year Jayco EXTERIOR warranty, they will cover it.
