I had this same issue this past spring with my 2012 Montana that I recently traded in.

I used 3M Marine Cleaner and Wax with a power buffer and it worked good for me.

I started the process through the dealer, they in turn will contact Forest River, I am hoping to get front and rear cap painted this winter. Keep you informed.

My dealer, 150 miles from me, suggested I find a Forest River dealer closer to me to do the "repair". Said they didn't have to be a Cedar Creek dealer. Good luck finding another dealer with a good service dept., to remove the decals and going through the procedure they suggest, NOT. I was going to take my back to the CC factory but they are booked until June 2015.
Yes, Forest River will approve this "repair" BUT finding someone qualified to do it is another thing.

Betterway Cap Fade Repair
STEP 1:
v Repair and Restore- 4.0 hours
Start by sanding the area with a DA sander with 600/800 dry paper, blow off dust periodically to check progress.
Blow dust and wipe with a damp cloth and continue wet sanding down 1000 and finally 1200 grit wet sand paper.
Start buffing with a wool pad and 3M super-duty compound to work up scratches.
STEP 2:
v Protect- 4.0 hours
Seal the cap with UV Protective 2K Urethane to avoid cap fading.
STEP 3:
v DECALS- 3.0
R/R Front Decals

This probably won't last much longer than the original. Most manufacturers have now switched to painted rather than colored gel coat caps as they are all having the same problem. Heartland and Jayco have for sure done this. I had mine painted at a commercial truck and bus bodyshop. They were one of the only places that has a paint booth big enough to get into. Buffing it will make it shine like like new, then a couple months later the same problem will come back, then what? The only real cure is to paint it. Mine has a basecoat clear coat finish and still looks like new...

I thought this was a gel coat solid color cap and concerned it looks like this so soon.
Has anyone else had any issues with their Cedar Creek or Silverback?

Yes , I have a 2013 CC 34 RLSA and the front and back caps have started to discolour and fade , I have sent pictures and an email to the dealer , waiting on an answer from them .

We have the same issue on the same year and model CC. Have also seen this on 3 other like units. Sent a note to FR but have received no reply. I have used a marine grade cleaning/polishing compound by 3M. It helps but doesn't get rid of problem 100 percent.
