Maybe you can talk them into leaving the logo off under the radar.....
Picked up mine yesterday and it really looks good, i would be lying if i am not a bit concerned that it will happen again, but enough worrying about it. my dealer told me that i am lucky that FR is denying a lot of claims. I am looking at it this way, got my 150 dollars back and then some from the purchase of the 2nd year warranty. Good luck to everyone else.

I spoke with a Prime Time rep at my local show this past wknd and he pulled some strings to get me a phone call from FR stating they're going to make my unit right. WAHOO!!!! Was advised to contact my selling dlr to schedule an appointment. Now I'm told my dlr is no longer doing the repairs due to a disagreement between them & FR on how the process should be done! I'm back to square one again!!! I knew this was too good to be true!

Don't give up, that's basically how mine went down. Talk to the FR guy again since they said they're going to make it right. You deal with TS in Hamberg?

Looks like we're in the same boat. I'm supposed to drop it off this coming weekend to the place closer to me instead of TS. I'll keep you up to date.

A detailer told me it is a painted fiberglas with a clearcoat. Not gel coat. So which is it a painted suface with clearcoat or a painted surface with gel coat? And is it the paint that's bad or the coating over the paint?

If it's factory and solid color, its most likely gelcoat.
You can also take some rubbing compound and rub it and if it leaves color on the towel. Its gelcoat or a single stage paint, but most likely gelcoat.
If its base, clear paint, when you rub it with a compound it will not show any color on the towel.
If you're having oxidation problems on a 2012 camper, im 99% sure its not a base clear paint, but a gelcoat.

Oh and you can't really gelcoat over paint without sanding the paint. So no manufacturer would do it....to time consuming.

Tried rubbing compound...no color transferred to the cloth so it is not gel coat?
