Clear coat peeling?

What is the best fix? I have about 4 small and one large area on the passenger side of my DP that is peeling. Anyone else have this issue and what have you done to correct it.

This is a common problem on motor homes with clear coat. I see two options: 1. Live with it or 2. Repair it. We had a 2001 Revolution that had clear coat damage on the front roof and on the rear. I had that repaired and it cost about $2,500. The unit looked like new when finished. I sold it six months later and I will always feel like I got that repair money back in the sale, but I can't prove that. It sold in one day!

2K it's real auto clear coat. Haven't used it yet due to weather they also highly recommend using a respirator when spraying.

There is NO fix for clear coat peeling/blistering, other than to have it repainted. Anything else offered here is just a temporary bandage. I tried the 2K clear coat on one side that was just staring to show issues. I even repainted the roofline (above eyesight) with matching paint, but all of this only extended the problem for another year or so,

Luckily, the Monaco products pretty much only had the issue from the rain rail up. I had the entre coach repainted from the rain rail and marker lights up repainted for $3000.00. It looks like new again.
