Faded front cap

Does anyone know how long the warranty is for the front cap? I have a 2015 Cedar Creek 34RLSA and the cap if faded already. I know that mine is currently under warranty but just wondering about the replacement cap. I'm sure they will replace it with a new cap that will fade in a year too. Very disappointed in my Cedar Creek. Click image for larger version

Same here on a 2014 34 RLSA. The Cedar Creek warranty "fix" of sanding, buffing and using a UV sealing wax does not work. You will be wasteing your time, the dealer will be waisting his time doing this, believe me. Looked good for about 45 days then all oxidized again. I am still trying to get something done.

On my first Creek the front cap faded and dealer said the fix that Cedar Creek wanted to do would not work. I traded that camper for another Creek and this one has not faded, knock on wood

I hope you meant UV sealing urethane/clear coat and not wax. It needed to be clear coated and not waxed.

Exactly, the UV sealer was a wax "sealer". I contacted someone I know who is in R & D of one of the major car care companies that formulated the product used (sorry I won't say what company it was), he said it would be a short term solution. If the gel coat was badly oxidized and every bit of oxidation was not sanded out then it would most likely start to oxidize again and using a sealing wax would only slow it down a bit. The sealer would have to be applied very often like every month. Had I known this before I drove 350 miles round trip to the dealer to get the Cedar Creek "fix", I would have refused. It was a total waste of time and money for me, the dealer, and Cedar Creek.

This seems to be a problem across the Forest River lines. My Forest River/Prime Time Crusader has been fading not long after I bought it. I just found out lately that they are repainting newer trailers (less then two years old) but not older ones. My trailer is a 2012 so they knew there was a problem but continued to build trailers with the fade problem. I asked why not fix their mistake especially with original owners but was told "Nope". It's a shame you spend your hard earned money to buy a product and the manufacture builds an inferior product.

This is an industry-wide problem.
