I feel his pain, however, 3 years old is quite a bit beyond the 1 year warranty. Any assistance at this point in time would be "goodwill" by the manufacturer so he's pretty much at their mercy!

That is awful you even side with the mfg. 3 years and the clear-coat fails is a mfg flaw. That's like saying your fiberglass walls delaminated after 3 year!!!.....

I can realize manufacturers try things that fail. They redesign and fix the problem. That is the way they work. It concerns me that the cap manufacturers/RV manufacturers don't seem to care that people spent good money on a product that looks like a 25 YO unit in 2-3 years. If I were going to keep it...I would save/spend the money and get it pained. One could also have some vinyl put on it....not that much cheaper and won't last as long. There are independent(I am sure other types) that would strip/prep that cover for you. They can get those inside the truck shops.

Did the mfg supply you with new decals at no charge?

If it's a known issue why won't they fix there mistake?
