Not a paint issue, but our Eagle had cracks in the gelco on the front cap and Jayco warren tied it right away. They sent a new cap (took 5 or 6 weeks) and the dealer had it replaced in 2 more weeks. I'm VERY happy.

Our 2015 Jayco Eagle was made in September 2014. By then, Jayco eliminated the dark brown cap and changed to an ivory color.

The dealer told me Jayco had too many warranty claims for fading. I'm glad I have the ivory front cap.

That is interesting. I wondered if it would wind up with us having to re-paint every 2 to 3 years. If the correct paint is used, then that should eliminAte the problem. Thank you for the info.

I will certainly let all know how this is resolved. I would think Jayco wouldn't want faded RVs with their name on the front rolling down the highway! We'll see.

Our 2014 Eagle Premier is in the paint shop now. I am having the work done at a dealer I didn't buy the unit from this dealer but the service has been good. No problem getting approvals for work from Jayco.

Boy! I must be the only "Dark Cap" Eagle owner who hasn't had a fading/chalking problem! (Knock on wood!)

While I was wintering in Texas, another 2013 Eagle owner pulled in. His chalking/fading problem was really bad. Advised him about the numerous posts on The Forum about it. Last I heard, he had contacted Jayco and was going to have it repainted when he got back to his home base. Jayco does seem to step up on these, but you MUST get it reported to them during the 2 year warranty period.

We have a 2013 284BHS, I noticed the front cap was fadeing and made the call to my dealer a few weeks ago. They contacted Jayco, it is now in the shop being repainted and decaled.
My warranty ran out Aug '14, so it is nice to see Jayco standing behind their product, we have been very happy with ours. Hope to get it back next week.

Just got back our whitehawk 28 DSBH from a front fade repainted. The dealership did a fantastic job and the clear looks extra thick. I suspect it will last for a long time. Thank you jayco for standing behind your product!
