Paint on the front cap fading

I have a 2015 wildcat max travel trailer and the paint is oxidized and fading on the front cap. I have been told this might be a warranty defect and is possibly covered. Does anyone have any experiences with this? Any info appreciated.

Yup. Mine was sanded, painted and clear coated. All warranty work. No issues at all with FR and work was nicely done by a local shop.

Covered under warranty. The maximum allowance for painting was $1600. They would have replaced the entire cap, but there was a back order due to high demand. I chose to have it painted and not have the decals replaced.

SOL?

So I recently purchased a 2014 Maxx. It has the faded front cap as well. Apparently original owner was not aware of the warranty fix and did not get it done. Am I likely screwed on this deal by not being "The original purchaser"? I see this has been an ongoing "problem" for a few years. Has there been any class-action done over this?

They took our 2014 Wildcat back to the factory to be repainted. Also did work on the slide. No charge, but we were within the 2yr warranty. I know of several units that have been repainted at Forest River expense. These include cedar creeks, crusader and other wildcats. Was told that it ws bad paint formulation?

We had our 2014 Wildcat 344QB front cap repainted last year at FR expense. No problem from factory at all. Had it done at Demontrond RV in Dickinson Tx.
