This is a common problem on the dark caps, industry wide. Just use the forum search for "oxidation"...
You have a 2 year warranty that will cover the problem. We opted not to get the cap redone in the dark brown and had the dealership service center computer match the side light color and paint the cap the same color. BIG difference in the cap temperature and the inside temp behind the cap.
- You will need to take pictures of the oxidation.
- Send an email ASAP with the pictures to email@example.com
with your VIN number and ask them what steps you need to take to get the problem resolved. This way the issue is documented with Jayco.
- They will send you to a dealer and they will work with Jayco to get it taken care of.
Do not go to the dealer first as they will drag their feet in getting the back to Jayco, and it could add months to the timeframe
We were one of the original ones to encounter the problem and get it resolved. One thing to note, ALL the GELL COAT needs to be sanded down to the fiberglass or the oxidation will eventually seep through the new paint.
