Front end cap

We own a 2016 Wildcat Maxx tt. The end cap began to fade during our first year of ownership. FR replaced it (it took a year). The replacement cap faded within a year as well. We arenít sure if we should have it painted or try to buff it as a quick fix. Thanks.

We have 2016 Cedar Creek 38CK with front and rear end caps fading. With all the online information dating back to 2014 models, it would seem the Forest River knew they had a problem, and continued with a product that was bound to fail. They stopped the rework program effective Jan 1, 2019. Now I am stuck with having to pay out of pocket for their poor quality control.

I have a forest river which the front cap also faded within a year. It was warranted for 30 month and was able to get it repainted. I decided to have it painted a lighter color that matched the paint on the side of the trailer hoping it wonít fade like the original darker color. If this one fades and the cap is still in good condition I might consider having it sprayed with a colored truck bed rhino liner. Just a thought

I'd be curious about how much that Rhino Liner would weigh. Might not be significant; just wondering.

I would think that painting your front cap with Rhino Liner would create quite a bit of wind resistance and reduce your fuel mileage a bit...

I had a Crusader that front cap faded really bad, less than a year. Within 2 years, there was barely any brown left and was beginning to take the "Crusader" decal with it. Tried dealer and Prime Time. Said it was my fault as I wasn't taking proper care. Hah....if they only knew how I take care of my things. Back and forth, still wouldn't do anything about it.

Just keep it clean and cover in off season. Hopefully Forest River will do something for you.
