I have a 04 Journey that has a problem with the clear coat peeling on the front cap right where it curves over at the top and the sides right where it curves over. It looks like they did not spray a good coat of clear. Kinda like when they sprayed the front and sides they let the over spray cover it. Has anyone had this problem are having it?

Randy,
Is the peeling from the actual clear coat of the paint or is it the clear protective mask? You mentioned it is peeling on the front. Winnebago offers an option called a front exterior protective mask. It is basically a clear tape if you will, that covers the front end, protecting the paint from chips, dings, bugs, etc. If you purchased it new, your invoice/window sticker should list the mask under the "options installed by manufacturer". I would think that if it is in fact the mask that is peeling, it would be easier and cheaper to fix that than the actual clear coat paint repair. Good luck...

I have an 04 meridian. Same problem. Winny says bring it to iowa and they will fix. I'm in MA, so not going to happen. Check your side radius panels also. Mine are peeling there too. I am just going to pay to have it repaired. But will be my LAST winnebago product purchase..

Wow, you have a FOUR year old coach and Winnie was still willing to fix the problem? I hope your coach had a boat load more problems than that for you to have that opinion. Most RV manufactures would tell you to go pound sand.

Let's not get people confused. This discussion IS NOT ABOUT THE VINYL MASK on the front of the coach. (3M is one mfg, Diamond Shield is another).

This discussion is about the Clearcoat layer that is sprayed on top of the base color paint. It appears to be quite common for the Clearcoat layer to flake and peel along the sides of the roof cap above the awning rail, and also on the top of the front cap around the area of the clearance lamps and higher. See the earlier discussion at the link in my earlier comments for more history.

Randy -- we will be in the MilWIT rows near the center of the rally grounds.

The company in Forest City that does Winneys painting will repaint your coach if it is one that did not have a proper clear coat on the cap and shoulders anywhere. They offered to repaint ours here in FL but we are going near FC in June so will have it painted there. Winnebago will give you the number and name of the man to talk to. My paperwork is back in PA or do a search on this site.

Randy: Make one call to CDI Paint, Dave Nagle at 641-585-5900. His shop painted our coaches originally. I had the same problem and had it repainted in CA by a vender.
