I dropped it off a week ago. I should be getting it back this week. There were some delays. I'll let you know the quality with some pics when I can.

I have a 2015 Crusader 335BHS that I took delivery on in November 2015. Is there anything I can do or any product I can apply to help prevent this from happening?

Keep it covered...I had mine well waxed and it had no effect...it's the sun beating on poor gelcoat that does it.

Keep a close eye on it especially near the end of your warranty, the folks that caught it under warranty are the one with repair success.

It's being done at a truck body shop that also does RV's. The body shop does work for the RV dealership Primetime gave the job to. It's not my dealer where I bought it but closer to me. They, Primetime, are "supposed" to be paying for everything. I was assured by PT they are covering it.

One other thing I'd like to add. Mine wasn't covered nor was it in direct sun when stored. Maybe 4 hours of sun a day in the summer and no sun in the winter. I kept it clean but had the oxidation anyway. If you don't have oxidation yet, keep a close eye on it.

EDIT: Just got the call from the body shop that it's done! I'll be picking it up tomorrow. Then a critique with pics.

Picked it up and it looks pretty good. You can see some spots on top where it was taped off but I'm not loosing any sleep over it. No cost to me at all. Hopefully it will last. As requested, the large decal was left off. Thank you Prime Time for your attention to this matter. Feb 5 first call was made. A couple days short of 2 months for completion. Not bad at all.

Can you tell us what the body shop did? Sand it, paint it? Gel coat? Your pict looks like the OE. By the way the "Crusader" decal cost $60 plus shipping.

It's been sanded and painted. I assure you it's the "after" pic.

Thanks. My reply meant the "after" results looks as good (better!) than OE. I'm having an auto body guy come look at my Crusader. Just wondered what had been done to yours for comparison...no idea about the cost.

Thanks volwing1. The true test will come with time whether it was done well or not. Good luck with yours.
