2015 Silverbacks ( like mine) with cap issues were built LATE 2014. Two times a fade, under warranty, offered me a new and improved?!, brown cap OR a 2016 oyster cap. I chose the latter. I am hoping it holds up well over time.
Key word: HOPING.
See ya'll at The Rally!

No! I went back to the factory on my own after an authorized repair 3 months prior by a super center here in Atlanta. Went because of a BR slide leak; Dometic AC in main cabin NEVER worked properly; interior trim was falling off the walls; ohh yeah; prior 3 inch direct line stress crack in gel coat right behind refer slide!
Hey, what do you expect for $60,000? Something you can actually use ? We all praise rv mfgrs regardless of brand. Perhaps the advertising is better than the products. Just like people who have Harley Davidson tattooed on their body. Belief in the BRAND exceeds the quality of the product. Yes, I own a HD Ultra and have had many others over 50 years of riding. I was in the darn HD store yesterday " look'n around" ��.
FR HAS STEPPED UP FOR US. Perhaps because I can be like that pesky rodent that keeps coming back to bug you!!
See you at The Rally!!

The simple answer is no.

Spock123, we are paying the extra to get the new caps painted in Goshen the cream color that the sidewalls are. I think the mocha color will just do it again so I made a deal with them to paint them before install. I got the idea after seeing a champagne. This will be done after the rally.

Same here. Mine was built November 2014 and have not yet seen any fading. I am watching it but it only sees the sun when out camping. It has been interesting reading those having a problem. No one has ever said if they store outside or it is never covered at anytime.

OMG! Aren't they made for outdoors?'

Of course most are outdoors. And if the PROCESS IN THE PREP AND APPLICATION ARE THE SAME, then, if yours is destined to fade, then it will. Just going to take longer.

Mine faded twice within 12 months ( mocha). Now, it don't take much to figure something is amuck in the build! My 2011 Keystone never faded in 4 years, in sun, ice , rain, hail, dust, environmental crud and whatever. Looked new when we traded it. It was off white.

As stated previously, we now have the oyster cap. No more mocha for me, ever, never!

My apologies for being sardonic. It cost me $$$ to go thru this repair process and a trip back to WONDERFUL INDIANA for the replacement!

Am I upset? Yes. Heading back for MORE, non cap repairs. Should not happen, NOR, be necessary!!
My unit will be tied up 3 more nights.
More unnecessary hotel expense prior to The Rally!
