Mildew behind 3M tape

Is anyone else here experiencing mildew behind the 3M tape on the front end of their Berkshire?

I guess I'm drawing a blank. Where is the 3M tape of the front? Are you talking about the Diamond Shield?

I have seen it on other MH and asked DS about it. They said if I ever have an issue FR is covered free replacement. Give them a call.

I have an "08", so I doubt they would cover it. But it doesn't hurt to try.

I've read on another forum that the lifetime guarantee started a few years ago. Some earlier models are not covered under it. I am not sure what MY are included or excluded.

I saw it removed 100% without damage from a 8-10 year old Holiday Rambler DP. I could not believe they scraped it off, using chemical and slew of plastic scrapers. When they finished and polished the paint look like a new, beautiful paint job, not a single scratch. It was performed by Dazzling Detail out of Orlando, they worked campgrounds East and West sides of Florida. Spec. is HP water washing campers and Motorhomes. The front cap looked horrible with green growth, like new when done!

Vince do you know how much they charged to remove the DS? I have read that it can be quite expensive to remove it.
