Protecting the front cap on 5th wheel from sun damage

Hello friends of camping,
We are tring to come up with ideas to protect the front cap of our 5th wheel from the morning thru noon sun. We have a 30' X 30' X 15'center awning that is attached to my shop where we store the trailer, however the front cap extends out from under it. It would be a simple fix if it were a flat front but it has a gable ridge with approx a 5ft. pitch. We do not want to spend a ton of money extenting the roof line. We have an idea of covering just the front but have not found a cover for the front of a 5th wheel. Any ideas????

Use 303 aerospace protectant on both the cap and the awning. Airplane and boat guys love this stuff. I'll be using this summer on my RV.

I use 303 on My boat and RV. I buy it by the gallon and use a small spray bottle. For my boat, I spray some on and use a microfiber towel to wipe. For my RV 5ther, I use a flat mop or dust mop.
