Not sure about that one, wow they yellowed after just a year, that`s fast. Texas sun must be brutal. Perhaps someone who has experienced this issue will weigh in.

Good question on the warranty, my guess is they would consider that normal wear and tear but you never know. Mine started to yellow after a year as well. I researched around and a lot of folks say the LA Totally Awesome cleaner from Dollar General works well. I picked some up, and it helped a bit, but did not totally turn it totally white again but it is acceptable.

Our trim did start to yellow. Part of it would pop out too. It's been a while since dealer worked on it. Our focus was on the brakes, so didn't ask if they cleaned the trim or replaced it. But yes, it is covered

Try using 303 Aerospace Protectant every few months and it will help in addressing the effects of sun's UV on the plastic. I use it on my Filon sidewalls and my "decals" as well, no fading so far.

Once the yellowing has started it's difficult to get it back looking like new. My door window frames started yellowing before I starting using the '303', but haven't gotten any worse.

Decided to take care of that sun faded-yellow door window trim, easy campground touch-up project. Roll of painter's tape and a spray can of white Rustoleum for plastic did the job in short order. Even painted the kitchen exhaust fan vent cover as well.

Bob , I read a letter the other day that Dicor wrote in reference to cleaning their EPDM roofs. They recommend 303 protectant by name and say there are other companies out there that use petroleum distillates that will shorten the life of your your roof by half. Sounds like a great product but when I checked the store wanted 17 dollars for a 32 oz spray bottle. Kind of expensive.

Richard,

Yes, it is a little pricey when purchasing it by the bottle. I've been using it for a long time but I got smart a couple of years ago and purchased a gallon of it which was a lot cheaper than by the bottle. I figure the gallon will last me 4-5 years and I use it on both my TV & TT. It's a type of solution that you don't have to spray it on heavy, just a little amount covers a large area. When using on the TT roof, apply with a damp floor-sponge to reduce the amount of 303 being applied, works just fine.

Camping World has an active on-line sale for President Club members, gallon @ $44.99 http://www.campingworld.com/shopping...rotectant/1941

Shop around, I'm sure that a gallon of 303 can be purchased from other sources as well.

Bob
