I noticed a few weeks back that the cap on my 2013 Crusader also caught that faded desease......

I emailed Rick- Rkoelndorfer@ForestRiverinc.com.

He will help you out, mine too is out of warranty.

Our 2015 crusader did this also. It happened almost overnight. Took it to the dealer and they got it covered for us no questions. Our camper was out of warranty a few months and the still covered it.

I have a 2013 that I keep inside when not in use. I have not noticed any fading even though I lived in it for 7 months in the Texas heat and have traveled over 12000 miles.
Has FR given any explanation as to why this is happening?

Is this only happening on the dark colored caps? Mine is white.

I believe it's only the dark caps. Have seen it thru many diff brands though just all dark color caps.

After reading this thread I went up on the roof of my 2015 Crusader and found the same thing.

Mine is in being painted right now I pick it up in a few weeks. I was authorized 1500 for the total repair, which covered the paint but not the decals. I approached Rick directly to get the decals and they sent them to my dealer. So, zero out of pocket. Rick was fantastic to deal with.
