Not arguing your claim at all. What I am saying is the warranty claims for prime time caps fading have mostly been dealt with well. Pt has a one year warranty yet they have honoured it past 2. 4 probably not. Also bubbling (delamination) has not been a common problem on the pt that I've heard.

discoloration of nose caps

I appreciates your comments. I am learning a lot about gel coat. What I am finding that when you have a darker color nose cap it drawns more hotter temperature from the sun, which we all no, but the gelcoat becomes broken down over a period of time and starts deteriorating due to temperature changing of the material. If this is the case why would they use it on the RV's with darker colors knowing the exposure they would be getting from the sun.

This subject came up today when I was talking to the owner of Apalachee RV (a repair place, not a dealer). He said he was doing about three front cap refurbishments a week for Forest River and other manufacturers. They are very familiar with the problem. Talking to them direct might help get quick answers on exactly what is covered on whichever units. They are located just east of Atlanta.

Not sure of the process. But, they do set a specific time to start their repairs.

discoloration on front cap

I contacted Apalachee RV and spoke to Mike in the body shop he was very pleasant to talk to. He suggested that I speak with Mike Gearson at 3 way camper they are the persons who refer the work to them for the repairs of the front cap. I spoke to Mike Gearson and he said that most of the work that is being done is covered under the notice that Prime Time will go back 30 months on the trailers for the front cap. He suggested I call Pat Stratton at 574-534-3167. While I was speaking to Mr. Gearson he ran my vin number and I found out that my trailer was manufactured in 2012 not 2013. All the paperwork I have and the certificate of title says the unit is 2013 how can that be. I would assume it is a 2012 fifth wheel.

I'm not sure of the various model year changeover dates for your unit. However, mine was sold and titled as a 2016 model, but the build date is March, 2015.

This is going to be my last post on this thread. I donít know why you keep mentioning Prime Time. If you bought a Buick and had problems would you expect the Cadillac division to repair your car under warranty? Thatís what youíre trying to do with your RV. You need to contact Blue Ridge as I already said in my previous post. Using the right channels will be the key to having any chance of getting help. You might have a shot at getting some help from Blue Ridge, I can almost guarantee Prime Time isnít going to help. By the way, front cap fade has been an industry wide problem, not just with the Forest River and its subsidiaries.

FYI, the vast majority of RV manufacturers begin building models for the following year in March. In other words, an RV built in March of 2012 will almost always be a 2013 model and titled that way.

that is a common problem if you leave your RV out in the sun all of the time. Mine is inside except when camping
