Decals bubbling

We have a 2008 Jayco Superlite 5th wheel. The decals on one side have grown several dozen small bubbles. Last December, I reported the problem to Jayco a few months off the two year warranty, and Jayco is offering me two options--either $1000. cash or the removal of the decals, clear-coating underneath, and new decals installed. Has anyone else had this problem? I know of several owners in our area with this issue.

You can fix the bubbles very easily. Take a needle and poke a small hole in the bubble. You will not see the hole. After you poke the hole, the decal should smooth out. I had some bubbles on a few a couple of decals and I fixed them in about 10 minutes.

It's odd that they would do this now. Usually this occurs during install. But for it to happen this much later means there is most likely an adhesion issue.

How is air or water getting in there since it is sealed all around is the question. I would absoutely take whatever option you deem fits you best from Jayco rather than just let it go and fix it myself which you could do after taking the cash option and hope it does not fail more. Especially since you are out of warranty period.

Just my 2 cents.
