decal protection ?

Does anyone have A trick to stop decals from peeling short of a cover? I have a one year old Surveyor SP189 and the dealer has already replaced the front decal. It is out of warranty now and I am looking for something to slow the deteriotion of the other decals. The one replaced gets most of the sun. I was thinking of Armorall, a coat of paste wax on the decals often or some type of shellack on the edges. It seems they shrink some before starting to peel. I am guessing there is nothing on the market or Rock Wood or their dealers would be putting it on with the decals. I am going to check with some boat product suppliers as I don't see their numbers peeling as much. Any comments would be appreciated.

I used Carnuba as well. My little A126 is tiny compared to bigger trailers, and I still felt like it was quite a job. I'm ready for spring, campers shiny and spotless, stored in the garage.... Sad to see it sitting lonely there....
