Decals peeling

We bought our trailer brand new last August. Hadn't been on the lot more then 2 weeks. I noticed the front cap decal is starting to peel at the top of the decal. This can't be normal. Are decals covered under warranty? I'll get pictures when the rain lets up.

The decals should be covered under warranty. We purchased out 292BHDSLE last July
and our dealer just replaced our front decals under warranty. Noticed them peeling like yours this Spring.

Thanks. That's what I was hoping for.

Just called the dealer, just need to take pics and email them to them. They have started the claim already. Guess it's common for them to peel she said, regardless of the brand. Lame.

I posted in another thread that we had the same issue. We bought our camper last July. I picked it up from (outdoor) storage last April and noticed that the paint was peeling off the front wall. Not just the decals, but whole giant chunks of paint. I emailed pics to the dealer and within days, FR agreed to replace both pieces of the front wall. I wasn't real excited about the front of the camper being taken apart, but they did the job in a day. Apparently peeling paint was a known issue on a lot of models. Not sure if yours is the same issue, but here is a link to the other thread:

I would like to take off most of the decals. I do not like to be a traveling advertisement. Why my tires are filled with Nitrogen, all green trailer, Azdel this and that. What I would like is a nice clean looking sidewall with no advertisement. The ones I have taken off have left a shadow even with repeated cleanings and trying things like goo be gone and WD 40.
