Full body paint cracking at seams in king pin area

We have a 2015 Cardinal fifth wheel. While looking around underneath in the king pin area I can see where the paint is cracking and peeling away where they painted over the caulk. Anyone else with this problem and a way to fix it? Thank You!

Don't have that problem, but caulking shrinks as it drys out. Might never get paint to stick to it.

We are experiencing the same problem with our 2013 cardinal. The paint is cracking just below the water trough towards the top of the RV. It is being repaired as I write this, although camping world has not told me how they are going to fix it. Do you have any pictures? This is what ours looks like.

I believe there are a lot more brand new "Full Body Paint" RV's out there and I am one of them. I'll try to attach a picture.

Both corners along with many other spots and the cracked paint in the caulked seams.

Sorry to be late on this one as I was trying to find a WAX that will shine this Paint. NO luck!!
Paint job was done thru dealer, small outfit in Memphis that works only on full body paints...Found out Roof area was not prepared properly at Factory. that is why that flaked off..
