ID:	129171 can I do to bring the shine back and prevent it from happening again? Pretty disappointed with this defect especially when we paid so much for it. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Ours too but the bigger issue is that I can't reach the crest in the middle well and it keeps having an EYEBROW of dirt.

I use two 10 foot step ladders with a 2 X 10 from one to the other, just over the LP tanks. Makes a good place to stand while washing and waxing the upper part of front panel.

I also taped the perimeter of roof with, 4 inch, Eternabond. Preservation is better than repair.

Ok. Bit the bullet and did color change wrap on the toyhauler. I must say very impressed! Cost was about $1,000. But well worth the time and labor i had spent trying to maintain the gelcoat. The color change caused me to lose the white decals but a small price to pay for how great it looks now...warranty is 3 years and could easily last 10 if taken care of. Just another option vs painting or replacement!Click image for larger version
