Eventually happens to all TT's, but I guess the higher temps and stronger sunlight in the southwestern states doesn't help.

I use 303 Aerospace Protectant on my plastic trim and a Filon sidewalls, great UV protection.

My plastic entry door window trim and outside fan vent cover yellowed (prior to using the 303 stuff) and I used a Rustoleum plastic spray paint http://www.rustoleum.com/cbgproduct.asp?pid=118 that worked great.

Don't know if warranty will cover something like that, but you can try (sooner better than later).

I use 303 Protectant on just about everything. Has great UV protection for fiberglass, seals, plastic covers, tires, chrome, etc. Don't know what would work best if something is already yellowed except replacement if possible. A good scrubbing with polishing compound might work. Try in a small area first. Protect All is good for polish and UV protection also.

Probably is the material (plastic), but I would start using 303 on everything else on your RV. Google 303 Protectant and you can order it online or from sites like Amazon.com, etc. The 303 will give your RV good UV protection. I really like to use it on all the plastic cover on the roof (A/C shroud, fan cover, vent covers or anything else on the roof). You can also use it if you have a fiberglass roof.

I wonder if Red Max Pro #3 would prevent the yellowing? It's a floor finish many RVers have had luck with restoring shine and protecting the surface of their RVs. It is reported to hold up better than regular finishes that cost considerably more.
