Gel Coat Problem

We have a 2013 Blue Ridge 3710BH: Were having the problem with the front cap, and the side are showing signs of fading. Forest River-Prime Time has just denied our claim. They said we were too far out of warranty. Our problem just started because we took our fifth wheel out of storage and brought it home for the summer. They are aware of the problem because they new they had a faulty product. If other people are having a problem with the gel coat and can't get the manufacture to fix it please email me at marilyn3@cox.net. I am working on a solution.

So my 5er is older and the gel coat is starting to weather... I was talking to a gent and he suggested we get and try a product called .... CostaCoat... which we found on ebay..

What I discovered was that we needed to do a very extensive cleaning and prepping of the current surface... and a final wash with a good cleaner.... BTW this including a scrubbing with a 3M Pad to scratch and clean the surface...

Their chemical requires 6 coats to get the proper mil thickness to get proper protection.... but WOW the shine is back and it looks great...
