+1, but I wax it and also I had the high gloss finish option when ordered. What that was I don't know, but I took it for the few hundred they wanted.

I will be waxing it again before it goes to bed as winter can be harsher on paint than summer due to angles.

Our 2013 Eagle 314 BDS will be getting the cap painted in a week or so due to the oxidation at the top.

Todays update, so they finally got it painted but a couple of the decals are back ordered so they say. Been almost two months!! Question, would you just go without the decals? It would make it easier to wash and wax and one more thing not to fade. Picking it up tomorrow either way. Thanks!

I'd get them. It looks finished. Did you get it pained original color?

I really liked the colored 5th wheels, but this is the reason I decided not to pay a $2500 premium for the brown unit. I know mine's not a Jayco, but this problem isn't just a Jayco problem. Appears to be pretty common across all different makes and brands.

The decals in question are the ones that go on the sides of the front cap. Jayco, for some reason has these decals are part of the side decal kit. The service department just ordered the cap decals, thinking that it would contain all the necessary decals (not so). I noticed it when we got the trailer back and I had Jayco send them to my home. I still have them on office shelf. Maybe one day I will take the time to lay them out and install them.. not HIGH on my priority list yet.

We opted to have the cap repainted the color of the side of the TT (color was computer matched), the surface temperature of the cap is now more than 100 degrees cooler (dark color was over 200 degrees in the sun), and the inside of the TT stays much cooler during the summer when the sun hits the cap.
