Not just cedar creeks. I've heard a lot of forest rivers and keystone's doing it, mine included. Click image for larger version

Had same issue.
Back in November 2015.
Dealer called forest river said they will not cover it due to it being past 1 year warranty. But will replace if I drive it back at my expense.
Had extended paint warranty though a 3 party seller that camping world sold to me.
Warranty says they will only buff only.
Went on until April 2016 back and forth.
Found paperwork on 3 party seller and it stated will cover paint damage.
Called warranty stated I paid this amount for you crap warranty and you won't fix...they were shocked they stated they will pay up to $600 for repairs...
Stated no you will fix all at your expense still would not budge.
Call my dealer camping world and sent them a letter in writing....
Stated to them in writing you will fix properly and paint and buff like new or
Refund my full cost of my paint warranty that you sold me which you 3rd party won't cover and you sold me a warranty that you won't stand by.
24 hours later got phone call bring camper in--we will paint the front camp and no charge to you...
Got camper back last weekend from body shop---cap is nice and shiny and looks brand new....
Even climb up on top and double check to see if they did the work correct.
Happy camper now

My 15 32RL Cedar Creek started off just a little on the top but now it's down in the face. I'll post a picture when it stops raining

Ours is on the top but I'm sure it will travel. Left a message for Mr Sears at CC but per usual no call back!

They usually start up top and then work there way down. I was on top of mine in July and nothing, August it was small amount up top, and by september it was like cancer and all over. I know one thing when it starts and grows quick.

So, just to make sure I'm understanding. Some of you have painted caps and it is still fading? Do they not use clear coat?

I can see fiberglass gel coats like mine fading.. but painted, I just don't get. You would think after all the $$$ we spend FR would come up with a solution to prevent this in the first place. Just my 2 cents
