This is the post I sent to "Stretch" a few days ago. <BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-title">quote:</div><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-content"> </div></BLOCKQUOTE> This is not just a Monaco problem. All major coach manufacturers have had similar problems with dark colored paint areas for some years. I was shown a letter by a 2006 Country Coach owner that was from the factory denying a claim of responsibility for his paint problem, it went something like this: All major manufacturers have experienced problems with fiberglass supplied by Owens-Corning wherein the fiberglass is releasing a gas when subject to heat. This causes "checking" (angular bubble like bumps) in the paint as well as cracking. We along with the other manufacturers have a lawsuit against Owens-Corning and we will apprise you of any settlement. Needless to say he was not very happy with Country Coach as he had paid over $400,000 for his coach 2 years earlier. I know this does not solve your problem, but may offer some insight into the issue. I would suggest you search the IRV2 website for paint problems to gain additional insight. As for me personally, I hope Monaco or Owens-Corning was able to correct the manufacturing process for I have a 2009 Camelot with a large area of the coach painted black.
