Fading Paint

our 2013 Jayco Pinnacle's brown paint is fading away on the front and rear. Approximate time on the road is 1 year; in enclosed storage about 1 1/2 years. Anyone else having this problem? If so, have you addressed it with Jayco? Thanks for your input.

Is it safe to assume it's been waxed regularly?

If it's still under warranty, they'll repaint it. At least that's what I've been reading here as others have experienced the problem. IIWM, I'd contact Jayco and see if they'll address it.

When I purchased mine in 2014 the front and rear caps had already started to fade. the unit had been on the dealears lot for over a year. Had both repainted under warranty. Even though it appears your warranty has expired I would get with your dealer and ask. This is a known problem with the dark colored end caps on Jaycos and other brands of RVs

I think I read somewhere on JOF that when they repainted, they went White with Graphics and did not us the Brown on the nose

I stayed with the brown but with the correct paint with stabilizers to prevent fading. I had heard that the company in IN that painted the caps for various manufacturers used the incorrect paint for the application. Not sure if it is true or not but hopefully will not have an issue. it has been a full year since they were repainted and no signs of fading.

Here is a link that has additional information regarding the dark brown color fading.... Our EAGLE was one of the first to go through the process... Since the warranty on the exterior was ready to expire, we opted to have the service center match the side color and have the front painted the lighter color. The dark brown color reached temperatures of over 220 degrees in the sun where the new light color maxes out at 119 degrees in the sun... MUCH cooler in the front bedroom.

Tons of info on this subject on here if you check out the search function. Common problem, not just with Jayco, but any RV with a dark cap. Jayco seems to reprint for people under warranty. Good luck and let us know how it turns out. I anticipate being there late this summer or next.

We are currently having our front cap repainted on our 2013 RLTS Eagle Premier. We also had the corner pieces on the slide-outs replaced as they were fading. Jayco has been very good about approving the work needed during the warranty period, for various issues we have had. So far very impressed.

I've seen several new Jaycos westbound on the interstate and most if not all have the lighter front caps on them now.
