Fading

So my rig gets waxed twice each year, but I am worried about the decals fading in the constant sun it sits in when its not out on the road.
Searched the forum and found some strings on replacing decals, but I want to avoid that if possible.
Any suggestions on a UV protectant that will help prevent or inhibit the fading from the sun?

I usually use a Nu Coat or Turtle Wax.
TT is going to turn 2 years old this year and already seeing some fading.

A good UV was is the only thing you can use to try and slow down fading of the stickers. Don't think you can stop it as you look around the campground and see what older rigs look like.
The only solution is to remove them now and get them painted on with a clear coat over them.

Living in Florida, the sun kills anything left outside for long. So when I got the new camper, I sprung for a good cover with a guarantee. Even if the cover doesn't last 5 years, the camper will still be like new when I pitch it and get a new cover.

I ALWAYS cover mine when not in use. The Florida sun would destroy my rv without it
