What' going on here?

Hey forum,

Got an issue i need your help with. I've had my 5er for just over a year and noticed this developing on the nose. Is the paint fading already? Could it be some type of material from the rubber roof that is spreading down? Is it a bad paint job? I've tried washing it several times but to no avail. I can't imagine that it would naturally fade this fast. I'm not having any other problems anywhere else. Any thoughts.

Can't really say from looking at the pics but I would contact the dealer or the manufacturer as soon as possible. I'm sure there must some type of warranty on your 5er being it's an 2011. Good luck and hope it all works out for you.

Can't really tell from the pictures but, I'm wondering if it isn't the tree sap from your oak trees.

I get similar "spotting" on my roof and on the nose of my 5th wheel from the oak trees here when I spot the rig in the shade. Happens most of the year. gets all over my vehicles and roof at the S&Bs, too.

Hard to remove but, possible. Have to clean the roof and nose three or four times a year because of the "weeping" from the leaves.
