Question cosmetic damage

Hi everyone. A great summer for camping but after my last trip, I noticed an issue with my paint on the nose of my 2015 FR Wildwood Lite 262 . My camper is only 3 years old (I do have 10,000 camping miles on it), and the paint is peeling on the nose (see picture). I haven't been on back roads and I do have mud flaps on my truck. Any ideas on why this is happening? Any cures/fixes?

Sorry man. I wonder if you ran through something that damaged it. Otherwise, I'd say poor quality paint which is pretty disgusting given what you probably paid for the camper.

Could you get something to cover the front and protect it? I'd be worried about the sides too.

Did you try and contact the dealer?

Mudflaps only protect so much if you drive on a lot of lesser-maintained roads at speed. Looks like damage from tires kicking up debris, but shouldn't be peeling so easily.
