Cracked decals - only 4 years old

Just took our 2015 2700DS out of storage today and the stickers on one side are cracked. I can't believe it!

We bought it new and it's been stored inside during the winter except for last year.

I've owned RV's that have been 25 years old and never experienced this. Some fading maybe but cracking?

Anyone else experience this?
Any luck with warranty coverage or am I on my own?

It turns out that only the orange swoop stripe has gone bad. I will strip it off with a heat gun and see how it looks.... but it canít really look worse that what is already there.

I have a 2014 3010 with the full body paint and it appeared on my dark color only. It’s called checking and if you park it outside without covering it can’t be avoided.

Yes, orange the decal near the vent was dark on my 2013 too... almost black in places. The black would not clean off the decal. I did strip off the decal using a heat gun. The decal adhesive was hard to get off... I tried a few different substances but ended up using Goo Gone. There is still some reddish hazing on the gelcoat. Oh well, still better than the ugly cracked decal.

The decals on my 2007 Jayco were still intact when we sold it last year. The one thing I did....when I waxed it, I made sure not to get any wax on the decal itself. The decal held up well and never cracked. They had a slight fade to them, but otherwise were ok.
