Clearcoat Peeling Off

There is about a 10" section of the roof fiberglass that is painted and clear coated, on both sides of the rig. It is the rolled section of the roof, where it meets the side wall. On my rig, the clear coat has peeled away on the horizontal part and about half way down the rolled section. It is easily visible from the ground. The vertical section remains intact. It appears to be a poor job by WRV and sun damage.

Question is, has anyone repaired this? Has anyone found a clearcoat that can be applied with a brush or roller? Maybe a marine grade urethane?

I don't have a spray setup, so any suggestions would be appreciated.

Ken, we also have a 2006 34 with the amber paint scheme. My prior coach was a Safari Trek. The rolled edges of the Trek also began to flake. I obtained the paint codes from Safari and purchased the correctpaint and clearcoat from a auto body paint supply store. Your codes are in your coach manual. The auto body paint supply store was able to put both paint and clearcoat in spray cans and supply an appropriate primer. I am not a professional auto painter so you are on your own. Worked for me.

WRV isn't the only mfg'er with this problem ...unfortunately, it isn't terribly uncommon, especially with darker colors.

Same problem here. The condition seems to improve with my age and loss of eyesight.

Those pre-made cans of spray paint and lots of masking paper will do the trick.

I'll get to it one day.
