When I took our TT in to have the front cap fading cared for, I asked them about preventive maintenance... There is no preventive maintenance for the Dark Cap fading... it will happen sooner or later.

My front cap is white, so hopefully I won't have to go through this. I've seen white gel coat chalk up and craze badly, though. I keep it in covered storage. Hopefully being white and covered will be enough prevention... Sorry you all are having this bad experience.

noticed my front cap started to fade also near the top when I when to inspect the roof.

Since we full time , that could be a problem for us. How much time did your rigs stayed at the dealer for this ?

The dealers DON'T do the work they send it to a body shop, so time frame depends on how busy the shop is mine took three weeks.

Mine was in and out of body shop in about a week, but would've been sooner. This body shop wasn't 100% satisfied in the painting and wanted to redo some areas. This timeframe included filling rock chips and repairing some minor cracking.

Just received authorization from Jayco to have the front cap painted.

Now waiting for the front and side decals to be delivered to our dealership before scheduling an appointment at the paint shop.

Very happy that Jayco authorized this even though the trailer was out of it's 2 year warranty.

Is Jayco covering cap repaints outside of the 2yr warranty? We bought our '14 used so as far as I know the warranty is gone as it's not transferable.

My cap started fading this spring. So far I have just lightly wet sanded it with 1000 and polished and waxed it to make it look better.

Not sure what Jayco will do since you indicated you bought the trailer used.

I would recommend you call Jayco customer service and talk to them.

Our TT was in the shop about 2 weeks. Strip and paint was a week but another week to get the decals. Didnt like waiting but i loved the result. Jayco was great. Hopefully now that Thor owns the bramd they keel the same level of service and warranty.
