Cedar Creek sent me a pint bottle if gel coat so I could have a local boat shop make a repair. You can not tell it was done,perfect match. All of the body shops I talked to said they could paint the spot and blend it, but that will not match over time.

Did anyone ever find how to fix this problem as I tried Maguires #5 and did very little.

I have an SOB that faded. It is the gray color that was popular a couple years ago. I had to get the front cap painted with a base coat clear coat finish to eliminate the problem. In my opinion this is the only real long term solution. Polishing will help for a short time but it won't last. Many of the major manufacturers are now going to painted caps as opposed to colored gel-coat caps.

Was it repainted under warranty if not how much did it cost? And where did you get it painted? Just wonder if an automotive paint shop would do it? I'd be leery about having any RV place paint anything except the rear bumper.

Mine was done under warranty with some coaxing. I had it painted at a truck/bus bodyshop. They were the only ones with a large enough spray booth. $1500.00. Seemed kind of high but that's what they charged. I did get a couple other estimates that were even higher. Now the rear cap is doing the same thing. I tried the Zep coating on it but it didn't even last a year and it's turning white again. I guess there's no UV protection in the Zep stuff. I might clean and recoat it just before I trade it off. I really want a new CC but it just isn't in the cards yet. Looks like it will have to be one with paint on it when the day comes...

I have a 2013 Silverback with the same fading on the front cap. I contacted forest river via E mail and described the problem, the unit is 3 months out of warranty. They recognize the problem and have authorized my dealer to repair the front cap, they are going to wet sand,buffing,polishing then clear coating with a Urethane High UV coating

That is the same fix Forest River authorized for my Cedar Creek. I haven't had it done yet. Hope it works.
