Full body paint peeling

I have a 2014 Sunseeker 3050s with platinum full body paint that i purchased brand new in January of this year. Already had to have the top of one side repainted by dealership due to peeling paint. Just noticed today that i now have peeling paint along most of the roof line and back of the motorhome. Full body paint is an expensive option and this paint job has been nothing but trouble. My factory warranty expires in January and i am afraid that this is going to be an ongoing issue. Anyone have any suggestions? I have already had to take it back to dealer several times for several issues. The four hour round trip is getting old and warranty expires soon.

ID:	91363 Do you have any pictures? Is it peeling or checking? Checking will look like small chicken scratches like attached.

Looks like poor prep work. Better get it addressed by Forest River ASAP.

Worst part is it is most of the roof line. Part of it peeled a month after i had it and was repainted. Now the rest of it is peeling. Sent pictures to dealer and forest river. Worried rest of paint could peel after warranty is up. So much for full body paint option.

Is that painted over a sealed edge? Shrinkage of sealant would be a forever problem if painted over!

Yep, me too
Mine had paint peeling off the edges where FR caulked and then painted over

I fixed it myself this summer by razor blading off the chipped paint along the edge. Took my touch up paint and repainted those spots, then sealed it myself. From 25' away you can't notice anything, but I know it's there.

Sure I'm disappointed it flaked off after being 1 year old, but I just figure I'll do the little up keeps since trips to the dealer and expiring warranty aren't worth my frustration anymore.

My 3050 must have been built on a Friday ha ha
