Paint or fiberglass

2014 Crusader, can you see the light colored streaks on the side of our trailer? I don't know if its paint or just the color of the fiberglass or ??? There is no sheen where it is light colored. We have only owned the trailer for a year and Protech looked good when first applied but quickly faded.
Any suggestions for restoring an even color or shine?
The front cap is also faded but I could not get a decent photo. You can no longer see the swoosh on the front cap and I believe it is made of a different material than the sides.
Thanks for your response!

The sides are normally gel cost, caps are normally plastic, might not be correct but 2 different materials. You can get a buffing compound for to use on both, that should bring it back and then a good wax, I call it chalking. Maybe my terms are not right as stated, but I hope you get the jest and how to bring it back.

That will always show if it's separated or delamed.

Wash it good with dish soap to strip any existing wax/sealant. Then lightly buff it with Pro-Tec Nu Paint Moisturizer. That will remove all light surface oxidation. Stuff is awesome.

I always recommend a good sealant instead of wax. It lasts considerably longer and has better UV protection. Almost 5 years and my rig looks better than new sitting out in the hot NC sun it's whole life.
