Now i need a bra

Truck wash off Interstate 5 took most of the protective coating. I also need a couple of slide toppers. I'm quite north of Phoenix but have Coach-Will Travel.
Thanks for your suggestions.

Sorry to hear about the troubles. Are you looking for recommendations on RV repair in the area? If so, I've been happy with RV Master Techs in Goodyear, just west of Phoenix.

Chris, are you talking about the 3m protective film on the front of the coach?

Slide toppers are a job, nice to have two folks because of the springs. If you can leave them until we hook up I can help you replace them.

The S/N's are on one end of the slide topper and you will need that number to order new material. Dometic I think made them, so ordering it from them is my first choice. The manual for mine say they have to be removed to do the job correctly. Before you have them replaced, level up the coach, extend the affected slides and clean that roof portion of those slides first,

I think it may be EPDM rubber roof, if not just wash it good with Dawn or Lemon Joy in very warm water, if it is EPDM, use Protect All Rubber roof cleaner, then re-treat with Protect all Roof Treatment. Camping world sells both, make sure someone did not open, use and then return. Take off the caps, and make sure the tamper seal has not been punctured or opened.

Thanks for your suggestions.

DIY clear bra kit on ebay. Western Avalanche 2000-2002 RV Complete Clear Bra Kit | eBay

description says fits Alpine 2000-2002 but I don't if the front body panels on a 2004 are any different. But only $50.

Bed Liner is Better

Several years ago I had truck bed liner professionally applied to the generator slide cover instead of the original paint scheme. It still looks good and I've had several compliments on it. Bed liner is available in colors; you could probably have it applied in stripes if you wish. The bed liner material cleans easily and is very tough. Very few, small chips after 5 years and 60,000 miles or so. It's also cheaper than OE paint.

Any pix to post of the bed liner finish?

Hopefully, 2 pix. A little dirty, but note the chips in the gray paint at the top of the closeup, none in the bedliner below.

We had the bedliner material applied to our slideout also.
It doesn't match as well as well as we had hoped but it sure fixed a problem.
The 02 that we own orginally had the clear lucite panel which was a royal pain. Then we had a bra fabricated, it lasted about 1000 miles before starting to tear. I epoxied the holes from lucite panel mounting and had the generator slide cover sprayed with brown bedliner coating. End of problem
