Stains on Nose of 31RETS Sabre

Hi all. Upon arriving in my driveway yesterday, I noticed several dark red stains on the nose of my 2011 Sabre, that for some reason I hadn't seen before. Three weeks ago I travelled through road construction east of Glacier Park, but dont recall getting into any Tar or other contaminants, There are no stains on my truck. My trailer is not parked under any trees or other obsticles. The stains are almost symetrical on both sides of the nose. Today I've tried , in order, glass cleaner, WD-40, Varsol, and Acetone ( carefully) with no success. In fact, there was no residue on cleaning towels after. In the photo you can see one stain over the "A" and one over the "R". Is it possible this is a glue problem, or does anyone have any better ideas?

Looks like the sticker is wearing.

Dear customer
Any chance you can PM me some closer pictures? Be careful on the ladder.

Thanks SabreSam, the warranty manager for Forest River is sending me new Decals for the nose of my Sabre, and I will arrange to have them affixed at my nearest US dealer at Forest Rivers expense. I will update this thread at the conclusion of the process. Thanks for all your help.

When you get the decals, try and lay them flat until the install. It will help the installer.
